We have a brief at a company that works with many of the world’s leading think tanks, as well as NGOs and academic institutions. They are looking for a Senior Designer with particular experience of information design to come and work in their Whitechapel studio. A bit more about the role: - The company has about 30 people at the moment, separated into 4 design teams. - They have a very collaborative way of working (leave egos at the door), non-hierarchical approach to management and lots of independence. - Senior designers are expected to exercise leadership and shared responsibility for all the design work coming through the studio – they help each other out and resolve issues together. - Working across multiple projects – with a focus on data visualisations and infographics. These could be within publications, stand alone, or sit within a digital platform. Not all work will include data visualisation but the majority of it will be even if it’s just a simple table or graph. - Customer-facing role, so expected to engage directly with clients to develop briefs and discuss feedback. - They are a busy design studio – typically working on a number of projects at the same time to tight deadlines. The three most important things are: - Experience of designing data visualisations / information design. - As it's a leadership role, personality is important here. - Managerial experience or experience of mentoring a number of more junior staff They offer more than other agencies by way of work/life balance and culture, including: - Core hours of 10-4 (around this you can choose your own hours over the week, adding up to a total 37.5 hours) - 25 days annual leave plus public holidays and 3 days Christmas closure. - When overtime is required, we offer time off in lieu. They also have a strong team culture, with regular social activities, an annual summer picnic, Christmas walk, and company away day.
