Role: Senior Designer Digital Beauty/Skincare brand
Location: London offices, visit a couple of times a week
Salary: £40,000 to £47,000 base
Benefits: Discretionary bonus, pension, product discounts and more

The first thing to highlight here is this role isnt just restricted to digital design. Its also going to include some offline elements like POS, packaging design and the likes. But more on this later.

If you like to be busy and enjoy design environments where the work is fast paced with quick turnarounds but remains really high quality, youre in the right place. As this beauty brand is just that, with projects with turnaround times varying between 2 weeks down to just 2 days. In fact, the environment is really similar to what you might find in a design agency, but will be in-house, working directly for the end brand.

Its just a well-oiled machine which functions day-to-day really effectively and collaboratively.

ABOUT THE ROLE

The team have a clear project management workflow and have things down to a fine art. Once you know this business and brand are, you will probably also likely not only recognise their work, but also just how creative and high quality it is too.

The business is a luxury beauty brand with a very British heritage. One which is well represented within most of the Worlds luxury spa chains, as well as through retail and online sales channels too.

Their branding is elegant, simple and classy. Their creative approach echoes and amplifies this.

Its a relatively small team of 4 and being the senior designer, you will have project support supplied by a shared resource junior designer.

As the Senior, you will be expected to self-manage tasks - creating digital assets for both the Global and UK market teams. The briefs will be varied including asset creation for web banners, digital newsletters, social media (including motion video and Gifs) as well as PDPs.

On top of this will be the occasional need to provide support for offline design projects. These arise as the team works highly collaboratively, each member able to provide project support when needed.

If a colleague is on holiday, and something needs fixing for packaging design or a new POS, youve got to be the kind of person who doesnt mind mucking in to get it done. Similarly, whilst you might be off enjoying a some fun and relaxation in the sun, you know the team back home are pulling together and providing cover for you too.

As a unit, theyve built up a wide array of beautiful designs and templates which help speed up some of the work. Making life easier, and the ability to turn around assets much more effective. This said, there will be opportunity to have creative input too.

If you love this kind of thing and are confident youve got the right stuff to succeed, apply now and please dont forget to include a copy of your portfolio of work. Were looking for a good array of different digital mediums, both graphic and motion based (animations/gifs, etc.).
