Creative Content Designer (Visual)

Part time

Ideally 3 days/ week

Location: 77 Great Peter Street, London SW1P 2EZ

Pay: £28–32K pro rata


Theos is growing and we’re focusing more and more on the stories we tell, exploring how we can most effectively communicate our ideas in ways that shape our culture and feed positively into the public conversation about the role of faith in our society.

Reporting to the Head of Communications, this new position of Creative Content Designer is part of developing our expertise to enable Theos to position itself at the heart of our public conversations, and increase its reach into networks of influence.

An exciting opportunity to be part of a unique organisation expanding into new creative media, you’ll have the opportunity to use your imagination, creative flair and skills to design and create content which brings big ideas to life.

You’ll be involved in a variety of work including developing short–form tactical content, high–impact video content and live video/ graphic content to support and grow Theos’ popular podcast series and new projects in the pipeline.

If you have content creation skills and are passionate about building dialogue across difference and the role that big ideas of faith – and Christianity in particular – can have in shaping our society for the better, then we’d love to talk to you.


We’re a small (but perfectly formed) team and we’re looking for someone that can get stuck in. The role will include:

Generating innovative and creative content ideas across a wide range of topics

Developing, producing, executing and editing video and digital content, primarily for social media

Producing graphic elements for regular content outputs and events

Ensuring brand and visual guidelines are applied consistently across Theos content


We are looking for someone who has

some experience of motion graphics and/or animation and/or videography (including photography, storyboarding, sound design, interviewing, directing, editing)

an understanding of story and narrative structures

proficiency in using Adobe Creative Suite/Adobe Creative Cloud with high proficiency in Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign and After Effects

a basic understanding of technical specifications for print and for digital media

strong communication skills, a meticulous eye for detail and solid organisational skills with the ability to manage multiple projects at a time.

In relation to our context as a think tank, we are looking for someone who has:

some understanding of how a Christian perspective could be a source of wisdom and feed positively into the public conversation about the way societies flourish

a desire for positive social/cultural impact

an ambition for Theos to develop its output into creative media

Finally, whilst we are ideally looking for someone 3 days a week we’re open to a conversation about more flexible arrangements.
