To support our ambitious plans to engage with many more people affected by blood cancer, we are looking for a creative junior designer to join our brand and creative team.

Working in a small design team you will have an opportunity to be involved in projects across the organisation and help promote and grow our brand and support our fundraising activity.

You will design creative content that will increase awareness and engagement to help us beat blood cancer soon.

Please supply a portfolio as part of your application either as a pdf or a link to your own website. Any applications without this will not be considered.

Key Responsibilities

As part of the brand and creative team, you’ll be working in a small design team that will give you an opportunity to be fully involved in projects across the organisation and help contribute to the continual development of our brand and visual identity.

As part of the wider Marketing and Communication division, together we will deliver creative solutions that are appropriate for our audiences and critical to our success. In an increasingly competitive market, we need to ensure we stand out and come across as meaningful and engaging to everyone we communicate with.

We need a talented individual with an eagerness to learn and develop to help us deliver outstanding creative solutions that are sector leading and that will help us in both supporting our fundraising teams and reaching more people affected by blood cancer.

We offer a supportive working environment with lots of potential for learning and development.

Our team offers design services to all teams within the organisation, so you’ll need to be confident in delivering a diverse range of projects such as artworking a highly detailed patient information booklet, creating inspiring concepts for a new fundraising initiative, or fast turn-around of assets for digital channels. You’ll need good communication skills to liaise and build relationships with staff at all levels, external partners and suppliers.
