Level: Junior
Contract: Full Time

The Opportunity:

We’re on the lookout for a Junior Designer to join the Mellor&Smith crew. Working with our fabulous designers, creatives & editors to produce the rule breaking creative we’re famous for.

We’re big on ideas and they’re at the core of what we produce.

The studio’s pretty small so you’ll get opportunities to work on a lot of different projects. We all muck in to make it happen so you’ll be keen to roll your sleeves up, get stuck in, and help the studio solve problems on the fly.

Everyone gets their round of tea in throughout the day (no big shots allowed). Pantone 722C only.


The Role:

– We’re looking for a designer with some up and coming video skills.

– Be comfortable coming up with ideas, as well as getting into the nitty gritty of editing in Premiere.

– It’s a varied role, so one day you could be working with the team creating ideas for pitches, the next, editing videos of stunts.

– It’ll have a heavy weighting on video, so if it’s not an area you’re into then don’t apply (please).

– Someone willing to get stuck in to every area of creative and not shy about doing it.

– Some filming & photography; our Take Fucking Risks series, avoiding the police on the tube, etc.


Must Haves:

– Minimum 1+ year full time experience (preferably agency).

– Interest in film/photography. Comfortable using a camera.

– Experience working with Premiere Pro, After Effects (preferable) and Adobe Creative Suite.

– Banging sense of humour – we pitch risky work, we like risqué people.


Who We Are:

We’re a Brand & Ad agency specialising in getting people noticed.

We keep it simple. We break the rules. We take risks.

Form always follows function: an award winning chocolate teapot might be beautifully crafted by the finest Swiss chocolatiers, but it’s still rubbish at pouring tea.

We’re a small team (currently 7 of us) in Bankside near the Tate Modern, founded in 2009.


We Have a Great Package:

– A fountain of beer, gin & coffee
– Regular sausage fests, & epic parties
– Yearly photoshoots to keep your tinder profile looking fab
– Life threatening sporting events
– 2 weeks off at Christmas (plus the usual 28 days holiday)
– Be part of the biggest creative event series in London
– Tate membership
– Commission if you bring in new clients
