The role and its purpose.
We are looking for a talented and ambitious digital designer, fluent in Adobe Creative Suite & Sketch, to join the in-house creative team. You'll work as part of a multi-disciplined team to design user focused experiences. While you'll need to follow our brand guidelines we'd love to be challenged on our approach to them. We'll expect you to push us, sometimes be rejected and push us again. You'll be part of the Marketing Experience Design Team but will be working exclusively with our online teams who are made up of talented specialists including UX practitioners, copy writers, scrum masters and product owners all collaborating to explore and execute inspirational and innovative ways for customers to connect with the brand.
Working with the online and digital teams as part of a micro team, working in scrum and agile, the successful candidate will be expected to develop, test and iterate experiences and journeys. Understanding and participating in user research is an important part of the role to help improve our digital assets and hit our KPIs. You'll also work closely with the other digital designers and UX team to deliver consistent experiences.
We believe how we work is as important as what we do. You'll find friendly & sociable individuals eager to develop & learn across not just the design team, but also the wider business.
