Social Media Graphic and Video Designer

Social Media Department

Back to careers page

As we continue to grow, we’re on the lookout for a new social media visual content producer to join our ever-busy Social and Content team, supporting the design of social assets, both static, animated and video. Reporting to the Head of Social and Content, your role will be to ensure that all projects are produced to a high standard across long term and same-day briefs.  You’ll use your flair and creative thinking to share knowledge with the full team and client set. Touching on all aspects of content production, with a big emphasis on motion, you’ll use your proficient knowledge of Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premier Pro and Adobe After Effects to bring concepts and designs to final asset or edits.

Already with some experience behind you, ideally in a creative agency environment, you’ll be used to proactively improving your skills through online training aids – building new skills all the time. As we shift to producing more and more moving image content for our clients, your Adobe After Effects knowledge and experience will play a key part.

You’ll use your keen eye for detail and creative spark to work with the wider Social and Content team and the Creative department, pushing our content to the next level. Using the team’s insight to help guide your creativity, you’ll help produce on-going assets, as well as one off campaigns. Always willing to go the extra mile, you’ll relish getting stuck into a creative brief and enjoy the fast pace an agency like ours offers. It almost goes without saying that you’ll be a natural team player, able to estimate how long it’ll take to complete a project and also keep accurate daily timesheets.

Manage all this and you’ll contribute to the agency’s creative output as well as client satisfaction and retention. You’ll continue to build on the reputation of trust and go-to problem solving that the current team has worked hard over the years to establish. Overall, you’ll be a hugely positive influence on agency culture and output.
