This is an opening with an extremely well-established pioneer and innovator of commercial and residential property which has a presence nationally as well as internationally. They have already achieved numerous accolades to date and they are playing a big role in changing the skyline of the North West.


The role


The uniqueness of this role is that you will be joining a team that is truly evolving but has retained a great culture which is underpinned by a first-class record of staff development and retention. You will work closely with the Head of Marketing and other team members to understand the needs of the business and devise conversion optimisation strategies. You will deliver responsive and systematic design solutions, both visual and user-experience based, through an agile methodology & create wireframes, prototypes, design concepts and proof-of-concepts.

You will also work with the wider marketing team to develop all assets to launch new schemes such as brochures, emails, landing pages and other collateral & take projects from concept through to final completion. The work will include everything from modern and finely executed printed material to engaging online assets & you will ensure branding stays consistent across all mediums, and contribute ideas and design consultation to a mix of briefs. The environment runs along very similar lines to a brand / integrated agency, so you'll have the best of both worlds if you are looking to move from an agency to an innovative client-side setting.


You will also be exposed to the development of new brands from concept, ensuring the seamless transition of briefs from idea to stage to fruition. You'll be working on brands which lean towards a culturally diverse target audience, and the style of design is extremely modern and simplistic.


What we're looking for

A creative who has a clean and modern approach, and who appreciates the simplicity and elegance of balanced design; who can not only come up with ideas and well thought-out concepts but can deliver on a wide range of assets. You'll be able to work with stylish imagery and appreciate the use of white space and subtle typography and be comfortable with both online and offline design and marketing. It is envisaged that you will have at least four years' experience in a design role, and the capacity to dive into different briefs, for different products, across different mediums.

Your portfolio of work will be of an exceptionally high standard, and you will most likely be operating in an agency environment, or in-house with a brand that has a lifestyle or consumer edge to it, property would be a bonus. You'll enjoy keeping up-to-date with what's going on in design, and you'll be able to look beyond a piece of creative and understand how imagery and words can evoke the desired reaction.

You'll need an in-depth understanding of Adobe Suite; Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop & After Effects would be handy. Experience-based understanding of the complexities and processes involved in website creation is very important as is an understanding of UI.

What's on offer

On top of a salary of between £35 - £40,000 (DOE), you'll be joining a company that has grown on solid principles & has retained a grounded culture. The role also offers ample room for personal growth and development. You will also be working alongside some extremely talented people in an environment you will find hard to match in the region. Apply now, or for an informal chat please contact Simon or Samantha on 0161 425 7352.
