We're looking for an experienced and ambitious Design Director, or a Senior Designer / Lead Designer looking for a step up. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing integrated marketing agency that's landed lots of new business, even during the pandemic.  They're in really good shape and in need to recruit a couple of new team members - the Design Director or Senior Designer / Lead Designer being a key hire.

The experience we need

  • First and foremost you'll have an awesome portfolio to share. You must send this through otherwise we cannot consider your application  (email it to Tony via the Henry Nicholas website) 
  • The ideal candidate will have a mixture of brand development and integrated campaign work, and a varied mix of conceptual work and exceptional crafting skills - not just one or the other
  • You'll be at home in front of the client presenting and storytelling
  • You'll be experienced in managing work in and out of the studio

The role

The Design Director / Senior Designer / Lead Designer will head up a team of 3 and will help get creative briefs through the studio, whilst taking the creative lead on bigger projects and nurturing and growing the talent in the studio. You'll present to clients and get involved in pitch work. You'll bring a fresh perspective to the agency and help them take their creative offering to the next level. Although you'll be given lots of freedom and autonomy in the role, you won't ever be alone. The Creative team works closely with the strategy team and client services teams and Cross-agency collaboration is part of what makes them as good as they are. You'll also work closely with the senior management team and you won't have a Creative Director above you so there's no glass ceiling. 

The company

A tier one independent agency with a really strong leadership team, clear values and objectives, and an enviable client base of well-known consumer brands with global reach. You won't be a cog in a wheel here, or part of a bigger machine. It's about doing the best work, not selling ideas to the client that won't solve their problems.

Their client based includes a number of well-known, global brands and they're looking for a creative shot in the arm - somebody to lead a team of three mid-weight designers and to help nurture and grow their creative team. This is a strategic hire for the agency and it's a great opportunity for them to up their game from a creative perspective. It's also and exciting opportunity for the successful Design Director / Senior Designer to put their stamp on things and do the best work of their career to date. It's important that you're a good human being too. They have a close-knit team of lovely people and they'd like to maintain that dynamic.

What you’ll get in return

In return you will be working for one of the most ambitious, successful and growing independent agencies in the South West with an awesome team and fantastic offices, although for now you'll be on-boarding and fully set up to work from home without the need to wait until lockdown is over. 

On offer is a competitive salary, excellent benefits and plenty of room for progression.
