  • Presenting options for design treatments and submitting creative solutions for approval from the Graphic Designer, Studio Lead or Project Manager
  • Proofreading to produce accurate, high-quality work with attention to detail at all times, ensuring all artwork is fully on brand.

The ability to thrive under pressure and enjoy the process of seeing a project through from start to finish is a must, as are strong organisational and communication skills, and a willingness to listen to and apply constructive feedback. Occasionally you may need to work hours that aren’t typical, so we’re looking with someone with a flexible approach.

The role will be based at our offices in rural Northamptonshire, with the possibility of some homeworking. A full, clean driving license is essential.
