Salary: £28K - £40K per annum
A well-known retailer in Glasgow is looking for a Senior Designer to join their team. The company are looking to grow their in-house team and as part of that, they're looking for a Designer to lead and manage the company's digital and print marketing.
This is a chance to join them when you'll have the chance to implement your own design ideas and methods and have the freedom to drive the direction of the design team.
What will I be doing?
As mentioned, the company are looking for a Senior Designer to lead the design team.
As the Senior in the team, you'll have the opportunity to direct the team in whichever way you want. You'll work across print and digital within the role so you should be experienced in designing across both platforms.
It will be your responsibility to manage all the design within the company, directing the more Junior Designers within team and really represent a consistent brand across all channels.
Who am I?
As mentioned, the company are looking for an all-round Designer so you should be experienced in Graphic Design, Content Design and Digital Design. You'll be leading a team of designers and it's a necessity that you'll have previous experience of leading/mentoring other Designers and should enjoy doing this. The role would suit someone that has worked in small in-house design teams throughout their careers - not to worry if you don't, they're open to seeing people from all different backgrounds!
In terms of tools, you can use whatever design tools you like but you should definitely have knowledge of HTML and CSS as well as an understanding of printing processes. The company work within the fashion retail sector so if you've got experience designing for a fashion retailer, then this could be the perfect role for you! Due to the Senior nature of the role, you should be comfortable sitting in meetings with Senior Management as well as working with a number of different teams. Interpersonal skills will be a big part of this role!
Who will I be working with?
As mentioned, you'll work really closely with the two other Designers in your team, helping and mentoring them in any way that you can. You'll work closely with the Marketing and Content teams as well, making sure there is design consistency across the board. You'll be expected to be creative and bring your own ideas forward to rest of the company and essentially be the voice of Design within the organisation!
What are the benefits and where will I be based?
The company's offices are located in one of Glasgow's trendiest areas. The company are working remotely at the moment so for now you'll be based at home, but when everything is back to normal, you'll be based out of their office in the City Centre. Due to the success they've had working from home, they are going to look to become a lot more flexible when things do go back to normal.
Interviewing and on-boarding will be done remotely for the role as well!
If you're an experienced Senior Graphic Designer that wants to work for an exciting company within the fashion industry in Glasgow City Centre, then please apply and/or contact Jack Steven at Cathcart Associates.
