The role: Lead Creative

We are a digital agency that designs and builds high profile, high stakes transformational web platforms. We’ve worked hard to create a supportive and challenging workplace, where team members have a high degree of ownership and are responsible for defining the ways of working that help them do their best work. Over the past two years our creative work has improved significantly. We’re now delivering high quality design work as part of delightful engaging digital experiences. As part of these plans we’re hiring a senior creative role to deliver exciting design work for our clients and help grow our creative team members through inspiring creative leadership.

You will be passionate about the quality of your own work as well as the work produced by other designers within the team. You’ll be as comfortable coaching other team members as you will presenting your own work to clients and colleagues. You’ll inspire other team members and continue to drive up the quality of our creative output across the team.

Our work is primarily building and integrating bespoke digital web platforms. Design thinking and creative execution is an integral part of bringing these platforms to life. You’ll have experience in designing a range of digital experiences and have experience of working with clients to design and iterate creative solutions to a range of briefs.

In practice this probably means you’ll have at least five years relevant experience within a design role within a comparable agency or internal agency setting. Being able to effectively and credibly engage clients and prospects at a range of levels is a must.

This role would suit an experienced senior designer who’s seeking an opportunity to develop their career and combine creative delivery with team coaching, mentoring and supervision.
