Job Description:

Job Title: Junior Designer

Reports To: Art Director

Location: Manchester

We have a new opportunity to expand and enhance the creative team at Amaze One. We’re eager to find a talented Junior Designer who is ready for a challenge and take a great opportunity for growth. You’ll be a keen learner who sees the benefits from working in an established and experienced creative team. This is an exciting opening for a talented junior or graduate designer to join a leading agency where you can really make your mark.

The successful candidate will play a key role in the creation and delivery of multi-channel communications campaigns – including email, print and brand projects. There will also be opportunities to work on related web solutions, across a range of clients and digital channels.

The person we are looking for will have a great blend of skills, experience and attitude. Ideally, you will already have some agency experience and understand the importance of good communication. You must have a good range of hands-on digital and print production skills, proficient in the full Adobe Creative Suite. You will have high standards in the quality of your delivery and able to execute them quickly and to a brief.

An eye for detail is obviously important; to ensure everything you deliver is both pixel perfect, error free and print ready to the highest standards. We will expect you to take pride in every delivery that you make, no matter how big or small.

It’s essential that you approach your work with a positive attitude; delivering work under pressure, to a deadline, as part of a cross-disciplinary team.

Our recruitment process consists of a face-to-face interview, a portfolio review and usually a small evaluation task. We are looking for a strong, relevant portfolio that shows an instinct for solid design basics and a flair for bold creativity. The evaluation task allows you to show us what you can do in the context that is relevant to one of our briefs and one of our clients.

In addition to the core requirements detailed above, we’d love to hear if have supplementary creative or production skills in any of the following areas: HTML/CSS, illustration, storyboard/scamping, video/audio production, photography, motion graphics, 3D modelling or copywriting.

  • A graduate, or up to 2 years agency experience
  • Experienced in Adobe Creative Suite software
  • Experience in both print and digital delivery
