More about you


Your role as Futerra’s Senior Designer will be to crack creative challenges, work into concepts, then design and deliver brilliant creative.


We’re looking for a highly creative designer who’s passionate about branding and graphic design – who has an eye for layout, can craft typography and who’s up-to-speed on new trends. You're in your element working in a fast-paced creative environment across a wide variety of briefs. You have a flair for brand identity, with experience of multi-channel brand activation; you can create a look and feel for a campaign, design a website, or work on an information design brief, with in depth knowledge of print.


We’re looking for someone who can take ownership of their own work, and also provide support to more junior members of the team, with good time management skills and a keen eye for detail. So you’re a real team player, ready to step up on projects and set the bar in terms of the creative output that comes from Futerra.


You’ll be working with a group of people who are passionate about tackling some of the world’s biggest issues in new ways. This is a role for someone who wants to use their creativity to make positive change in the world.


You will have spent some time honing your skills at an agency and are looking for your next challenge.
