Do you have a passion for design? Are you super organised with a commercial mind? Do you want to push the boundaries of how design can be used in PR campaigns?
Awesome. We want to hear from you in that case. Get your CV in, pronto.
"Over the last year, we've grown at such a rate that we're looking to expand on the services that we offer in-house," explains managing director, Richard Stone. “We are creating this job for a designer as a new role – so it’s a great opportunity to forge your own path in an exciting and growing business.”
We are looking for a graphic designer to take full responsibility for the production and design of infographics, white papers and industry guides. They should have excellent photo-editing skills and be able to produce in-house marketing materials, such as brochures and leaflets, to an extremely high standard.
They must be able to work in a team environment, have excellent communication skills and a positive 'can-do' attitude.
Web development skills, such as confidently being able to build and use content management systems, Dreamweaver and HTML are preferred but not essential. A strong understanding of search engine optimisation (SEO) would also be an advantage.
Stone Junction believes empowering its staff makes it successful. All team members benefit from a planned series of training workshops and all employees receive a £200 annual bursary, to spend on non-vocational training.
"Our personalised benefits package allows each individual to choose his or her preferred reward for achieving targets. Doing a great job can result in extra holidays, early or late starts, trade or professional body membership, book, tech, gig or music vouchers or almost anything with measurable value," continued Stone.
Typical activities would include working across a range of engineering and technology clients to achieve the following:
- Designing infographics, slideshares, guides and white papers
- Editing photography and images to accompany press releases
- Designing brochures, data sheets and adverts
- Creating online content, such as web sites, content zones and online press offices
- Design skills - possibly including InDesign, Photoshop, Dreamweaver or other programmes
- Ideally comfortable in a PC environment
- Design for print and web
- Strong communication skills
- Good project management skills
Salary for this role is £17,000-30,000, dependent on experience.
So, if you want to work for a company that is genuinely committed to its people, email Stone Junction with your CV and covering letter and an example of something you’ve designed. Make it a really cool thing – we love really cool things.
