The role

Here’s a chance for you to create world-class experiences for some of the best brands out there. You’ll get to work closely with strategy, UX, design and technology teams to create digital products and services that change the way people think, buy or even behave.  

We’re looking for someone passionate about all aspects of the design process – concepting, designing, prototyping – refining until every piece meets the highest standards of quality.  

You can’t wait to solve problems, come up with stellar ideas and obsess about the details. Creative and clever, but also analytical and clear, you have a grand vision for the spectacular and a passion for detail. You work well under pressure, keeping your cool when the deadlines change.  

Highly collaborative, you work in closely knit teams to push things just a little bit further.

  • Make the case for what you believe in, always advocating for people. 
  • Work well under pressure, keeping your cool when the deadlines change. 
  • Get involved in workshops and presentations, developing relationships and working towards good outcomes. 
  • Be an expert, continually learning about people, design and technology, helping colleagues improve their design practice. 
  • Role model positive, progressive ways of working with all areas of the business – facilitating an environment to deliver quality at pace.  
  • Stay stubbornly curious. 

 

You’ll likely have knowledge and expertise in these areas 

  • Creation of visual concepts, aligned with strategy.  
  • Work closely with UX and strategy teams to define direction and craft moments of delight. 
  • Knowledge of design processes, methodologies, accessibility standards and best practice. 
  • Knowledge of the core foundations of graphic design. Rapid delivery of various design templates without prior influence. 
  • Integrate beautiful, meaningful and seamless motion, animation and interaction into our products. 
  • Choose powerful images with clear intention, helping to engage the user through relevance and delight. 
  • Understanding of how to use, rationalise and attribute colour swatches across design systems. 
  • Execution of consistent and appropriate icons and icon sets for use both online and offline use. 
  • Prototyping: Produce visual proof of concepts showcasing design development, team reviews and user testing demonstration and feedback. 
  • Presentation: Ability to craft and deliver engaging presentations that inspire audiences and drive results
