We’re looking for a creative individual with the proven skills to work with the account management and development teams to scope, design and deliver websites and digital solutions for our clients.

As a Mid – Senior Digital Designer your responsibilities will include:

  • Liaising with the integration team and external partners to discuss the objectives and requirements of projects
  • Responsibility for a range of cross-platform digital design work, including inspirational design and content for websites, emails, mobile and social media

Our Ideal Person will have:
