The Graphic Designer interprets the marketing brief on behalf of the client services team, bringing to life a marketing concept in a visually attractive way and so that it is true to the client’s brand and their business and marketing goals. The role will require a versatile mid-weight graphic designer who has experience in designing powerful visual communication material, such as newsletters, social media ads, website banners, motion graphics, infographics, presentations and brochures.
This is a fast-paced, fast-changing environment which requires you to have an agile mindset, be flexible, resourceful and have an innovative, independent approach to problem solving. You are a Doer – someone who does not wait to be asked. Rather, you look for gaps and opportunities and seek to fill them efficiently and quickly. You are honest, respectful and lead with empathy in your communications. Your organisational skills are top-notch, you’re able to follow through without being followed up on and show creativity in the face of challenges.
This role is not for you if you wait to be told what to do, are looking for a 9 to 5 job where you can check-out, outside of ‘normal’ working hours and want strong corporate structures and culture. Big Ambitions has an entrepreneurial and growth mindset, and you will be required to fly the plane and fix it midair, so if you need a great deal of guidance to get going and lots of support and encouragement, this is not the right role for you.
