A little bit about us

We are BEAR. We’re an ambitious young company determined to take a big bite out of bad snacking habits. Grrr. We make pure fruit snacks with no added nonsense and if anyone tried to sneak sugar into our snacks we’d bite their heads off.

We are currently sold in all the UK’s supermarkets and grrreat stores across the UK and now we’re taking BEAR around the world - we have really ambitious plans for our international growth across Europe, the USA and beyond. We are a growing team of 48 people, mostly based in our Cave down by the river on the Southbank, London.

Brand is at the heart of everything we do, and we have a lot of fun along the way.

About you

We’re looking for a talented designer to come and join the team here at BEAR and Urban Fruit. Someone who’s brave, challenging and cares passionately about what we’re trying to achieve. We want to meet you if you...

• have 2-3 years of experience working either in-house or agency side
• have a strong portfolio of work that demonstrates brave, simple and bold thinking/designing that you have created (independently or as part of a creative team)
• are a thinker and a doer with a black belt in brainstorming - you are willing to share ideas and listen to others
• are a problem-solver with a beady eye for detail
• have a responsible attitude - you are able to finish your work to a high standard within tight project timelines
• are unafraid to muck in and get your paws dirty - you are part of the pack whether working solo or as a team
• are a whiz on Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign
• ideally can animate or have motion/editing abilities (not essential but we’re keen to develop moving graphics for our social channels and marketing)
• can illustrate (again, not essential, but we create loads of illustrated content in-house so this would be a plus)
• live and breathe our brand culture - at BEAR we love getting back to nature whether its a lunchtime picnic or a backpacking holiday in Bali
• take your work seriously but not yourself (must also like BEAR puns...)

About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a rapidly growing company and to shape who we are, how we look, and what we say.

We create a huge amount in-house, across a wide variety of creative platforms that span across packaging, print, digital, video, events, in-store marketing, and press. It’s possible your role will also involve animation, illustration and writing copy, depending on your skills and experience. You’ll be working across both our brands (BEAR and Urban Fruit) so you’ll need to adopt a flexible design style.

You will report into Chris, our Head of Creative, working really closely with our 3 in-house designers and with Georgia, our Marketing Director.

What we offer

• A warm welcome into our Cave (aka office) complete with treehouse & swings
• A big BEAR work-family
• Running club, pilates & StreetGym
• Flexible working
• Private healthcare
• Annual bonus scheme
• Free bottomless breakfast
• Unlimited fruit snacks
• Friday beers
• Seasonal company socials
• Occasional office dog
