Join the Surfboard team! We’re creating an exciting new platform to enable customer service teams to hit their service targets whilst improving morale within their team. We’re building an end-to-end solution that centralises data, makes forecasts, schedules agents fairly and provides them with tools to put development and training at the forefront of their experience. Our mission is simple: happy team, happy customers. Surfboard is backed by some of Europe’s leading venture capital funds and a set of stellar angel investors who have founded and scaled some of Europe’s most successful technology businesses.

YOUR ROLE

❤️ Own the entire design of Surfboard’s products including our agent and manager dashboard, from initial research through to the look and feel of the user interface.
🥇 Advocate for a great user experience in everything we do, designing an end-to-end experience that our early customers love
⛹️ Be a core member of our early team, helping to shape the future of Surfboard and how we do design, alongside teammates in product, engineering and data science. This involves guiding design & product reviews and iterating how we interact with customers to user test.
💬 Regularly conduct research to understand the needs and behaviours of the different personas our product interacts with: customer service agents, team leads, and C-suite.
📺 Contribute to brand design and product marketing, including our website and marketing materials.

ABOUT YOU

👍  We’d love to hear from you if you:

  • You think about the design beyond the user interface – how our products fit into our users’ lives and how they realise the value we’re creating. Sometimes the best solution isn’t a UI at all.
  • Test your ideas quickly through prototyping, user testing, research, gathering feedback, and breaking down quantitative data. Your focus is making sure we’re building valuable products that our users love.
  • Can wear multiple hats and context switch quickly. You’ll go from managing our design team, to conducting user research, onboarding a new customer or creating messaging for website and sales collateral.
  • You are passionate about how design helps us realise our mission – we aren’t looking to build a ‘better scheduling’ platform but are dead-set on changing the behaviours of customer service teams to provide more fairness and freedom to their agents.
  • You can balance attention to detail with pace – you want to get things right and care a lot about how design influences behaviour, but you also know where to invest your time for biggest impact.
  • You have experience working in a cross-functional product team, e.g. alongside engineers and product managers. Bonus points for previous experience working on data visualisation or scheduling products.

👎 This might not be a good fit if you:

  • Want to focus only on a specific aspect of design such as UX, UI or design systems. We need someone who can wear multiple hats.
  • You haven’t been a product designer before. We are very passionate about developing and nurturing talent but at this stage we need someone who is experienced.
  • You want a role that is mostly managerial. We would love for this role to grow into a Head of Design role, but at this stage we need strong individual contributors who want to ideate and test quickly.

LET’S DO THIS

We respect your time, and aim to keep our interview process as quick and simple as possible. As a fast-moving small company we keep the process flexible, but it typically consists of:

  • Get to know each other – You’ll speak with Natasha and Ellie (CEO and Product Designer) for 45 minutes so we can find out more about your background, approach to product design, and to tell you more about the role and Surfboard.
  • Whiteboard exercise – We’ll get together – preferably in person, but remote is also ok – for 1.5hrs to work through a fictional product design challenge end-to-end.
  • Meet the team – 30-45 min call to get to know a few more of the team. They’ll want to know what it’s like to work with you, and you’ll have opportunity to really dig into what life’s like at Surfboard.
  • Offer! – We’ll get back to you ASAP, and set up a call to go through the details of your offer and answer any final questions you may have.

After each stage we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible with feedback, and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. If any questions crop up between rounds, or before applying, just send us an email at ellie@teamsurfboard.com

Unifrog’s mission

We’re on a mission to level the playing field when it comes to young people finding and applying for their next step after school. We’re achieving this by bringing all the available information into one single, impartial, user-friendly platform that helps students to make the best choices, and submit the strongest applications. We also empower teachers and counselors to manage the progression process effectively.

Our outlook is global – we work with schools and universities all over the world, from the US to New Zealand, and from Italy to Hong Kong. We want to make it so that young people can compare every opportunity taught in English, wherever it is in the world, and have all the support they need to make successful applications.

We have a clear social purpose, and we’re hugely ambitious. We already work with more than a third of UK secondary schools and hundreds of international schools. We are growing rapidly in terms of the number of our customers, in terms of how much they use our platform, and in terms of the breadth of products we offer.

Our team is at the heart of our business and is integral to our success. We work hard to foster a culture of openness, happiness and innovation, and we commit to helping every individual learn and grow so that they can reach their full potential. We want to hire talented people, whatever their background. If you are excited by our mission and are ready to work hard, please don’t hesitate to apply. We look forward to hearing from you!

We believe in the power of diversity. If you are from an ethnic minority background, we strongly encourage you to apply. In advance of applying if you have any questions about working at Unifrog, please contact our UK Diversity Champion, Samar (visit our website for details).

Design at Unifrog

Whether we are communicating through images, video or text, we always try to be straightforward, honest, and to show respect for the other person. We communicate like this with each other and with people outside of Unifrog.

Clear communication is particularly important for us because our mission is to level the playing field when it comes to access to opportunities, and a big part of this effort is fair and straightforward access to information. It’s also important for us to be fun, while not talking down to young people.

We have developed Unifrog’s strong visual identity without having an in-house graphic or motion designer, but we have now grown to the size where we need someone to take charge of a long list of planned design projects. These projects relate to many different tools within the Unifrog platform, as well as to marketing and sales – and we can’t wait for you to get stuck in.

The role

You’ll be working with non-designers on the team to deliver design projects.

Here are examples of some design projects we’ve done in the past:

  • Motion graphics for a short, partly animated video introducing Unifrog to teachers at our partner schools.
  • Cartoon frogs to illustrate each of the 16 MBTI personality types (eg the ‘ESTJ – Wood frog: Loyal individuals who get things done and love organising activities with their friends’);
  • Posters for classroom teachers which illustrate the careers that people commonly progress to having studied particular subjects at university or on an apprenticeship;
  • Fun scenes of Unifrog frogs doing everyday activities (eg water-skiing, attending a protest), which we use at the top of a newsletter that we send teachers at our partner schools;
  • Infographics to illustrate the ‘Insight reports’ we publish on our website, showing how different sorts of students use the Unifrog platform;
  • A flyer aimed at students in international schools for a webinar about going to university in Australia.

Working together

You’ll work in our existing content team, which consists of very talented content writers and video producers. When you’re delivering particular design projects, you’ll work with people on our marketing, data analysis and strategy teams.

You’ll be line-managed by the Senior Content Creator and Editor.

Skills and characteristics

  • Graphic design: You need to be hugely talented at using software like Photoshop to create graphic designs within our existing visual identity that: communicate straightforwardly, are fun, and make lots of use of the Unifrog frog.
  • Motion design: Experienced using software such as After Effects to design motion graphics for videos. You’ll create logo animations, text animations, video overlay elements and transitions for our video editors to use. Experience animating your own illustrations would be an extra bonus.
  • Creativity: We want you to come up with great new ideas. You’ll often need to think of fun ways to visually express complicated messages or data.
  • Attention to detail: You’ll need to be able to finish your work to an excellent standard before getting feedback from your colleagues.
  • Ability to work both in a team and independently: You’ll always be working on projects with other people so you need to be an excellent communicator and team player. On all your projects there will also be times when you need to take initiative and motivate yourself. At least to start with you will be the only designer, so you need to be a strong voice in the team.
  • Working to deadlines: We have a long list of projects to get done, and many of them have strict deadlines. You’ll need to be able to deliver things on time.

Key benefits

  • Play a key role in democratising access to information that can positively impact young
    people’s lives, and get your work in front of 200,000+ people every week.
  • Become part of a committed, dynamic and growing team. We want to build our team for the long term – if you do well, we will do our best to make sure you want to stay at the company for a long time.
  • Professional development is important at Unifrog. You will define your 6-month objectives and will be supported by your line manager and the rest of the team to achieve them. You will have an annual training allowance to spend on what you need to grow and progress.
  • Influence the company’s direction: we love to promote great ideas, wherever they come from.

Red Stone is an award-winning creative agency based in East London. We provide brand strategy and design services to leading UK and international organisations.

We’re engaged in some fantastic projects from brand creation and implementation, to tactical marketing initiatives and campaigns.

Please email recruitment@red-stone.com with your CV, samples of work and salary expectations by 5pm Wednesday 24 September 2021. Sorry, no agencies.

We’re on the search for experienced creative artworkers/production designers; someone who sits between creative and production teams, meticulous when it comes to the details – as well as being a great communicator – for a number of freelance roles.

It’s important to stress that graphic designers without artworking experience wouldn’t be quite right for this, and we’re ideally looking for candidates with a minimum of 2/3+ years experience in a relevant role, whether that’s freelance or full-time.

For those who might be interested, you can expect a broad range of responsibilities; across digital, large format OOH, guidelines, re-touching, infographics, templates, deck-building and file organisation, for London-based agencies and some of the biggest brands in the world.

At Represent, we pride ourselves on reflecting the design industry more than we do the recruitment sector. A small, boutique-offering of consultants, working with the very best in design talent, as well as pioneering diversity inclusion too.

Currently we work with a tight-knit group of design talent, but we’re always looking for more as demand only increases with our clients, with multiple active roles.

In this instance remote-work will be possible, but the ideal candidate would be London-based due to our clients’ needs.

If that’s you, or you’d like to ask more, we’d love to hear from you!

*It’s important to say we will reply to each and every application, although what we do is so niche for the most part that we may not be the most suitable agency to represent you.

For more information or to apply, please send a CV and portfolio to joe@represent.uk.com

We are searching for (and will find!) our own marketing superhero – a super motivated, enthusiastic, energetic and super clever marketer!

Our backstory:
We are La Tua Pasta, a small luxury food business with a strong Italian heritage.

Since 2006 our family business has been making the UK’s largest range of fresh handmade pasta for many of the most prestigious chefs and restaurants around the country and abroad. (No exaggeration here – we supply 100+ restaurants) We have won 90+ Great Taste Awards over the years and have expanded from an initial stand at Borough Market to many of London’s Farmers’ Markets and Delicatessen.

In response to the pandemic (and losing most of our clients) we very quickly set up our online business, launched a social media presence and started delivering and shipping fresh pasta and sauces directly to homes across the country (earning us the “Best Lockdown Pasta” award as well as a “Best Business Transformation” industry award). We saved our business and all the jobs – while keeping our team safe (yep – we are very proud of all of that!)

This change has meant developing and launching a new consumer facing brand and creating every design element of a food/ luxury lifestyle brand!

We are still in a period of constant change and growth with new parts of the business being added almost every week. (An alfresco dinning terrace in Bicester Village! An evening restaurant terrace in Borough Market! More market stands! New restaurant clients!) Our pace is fast, we can be a chaotic bunch and everyone chips in to brainstorm, contribute, shape and meet the next challenge! Admittedly – our team is stretched, lean on experience and always working really, really hard. We are always pushing to exceed our clients’ expectations – and our own high standards – when it comes to our pasta – but also how we present our products and our company.

Who we need:
We need someone who is passionate about (aka obsessed with) marketing, design, and social media. (And it helps if you are a foodie!)
You’ve got to prove you’ve got relevant work experience – show us that you know what you’re doing when it comes to developing a marketing strategy (with a really small budget!), growing successful social media accounts, hands on managing of websites, mailchimp, running sales & marketing analytics etc.. We’re a small business – you will be a hands on ‘do-er’. You’ve got to demonstrate strong IT and design skills (we’ve listed the main tech programs below) and be fearless and determined in picking up anything you haven’t been taught before.

We will give you a lot of responsibility, decision making power and the chance to influence the brand and future of a company. You won’t be stuck in a corporate machine – your impact will be huge and the quicker you demonstrate your abilities the more crazy ideas we will let you run with and push on your plate!

We will try to be flexible when it comes to location and schedule – but you’ve got to be able to come into our offices on a very regular basis (please if you live abroad or in a non commuting distance – we cannot accommodate you) – and please note that this is a full time job. (And more!)

The ideal candidate will have:

  • 3+ years of experience in Marketing, Branding & design – coupled with a ton of enthusiasm and dedication!
  • A portfolio (digital or print) that demonstrates a variety of expertise
  • Great knowledge of mailchimp et al., wordpress, and back end website management (you do not need to have serious programming skills)
  • Print experience
  • Experience with Adobe Suite – Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Sketch is ideal.
  • Ideally previous experience FMCG, Luxury goods or hospitality – marketing and/or design

We are a super diverse team – but if you are gluten-free it can get very tricky 😉

Perks of the job – you will never be without delicious fresh pasta dishes again – and you will be working with a great, close knit team that is determined to be the world’s best, most innovative, pastificio!

We combine market intelligence, strategic thinking, and industry knowledge with an ‘editorial’ approach to enhancing the user experience in our development of brand strategies, positioning and identities for the luxury lifestyle sector from property companies to major hotel brands.

  • Skilled in Microsoft Office (Microsoft 365, Word, Excel, Powerpoint)
  • Excellent written and spoken English

  • Liaising with and managing relationships with internal and external stakeholders across a range of departments (including our external design and PR partners, etc.)

About Fat Beehive
We are a growing team of about 26 who, when not working from home, work in a relaxed, informal office in a converted warehouse in Borough (London) and Ancoats (Manchester). There is often cake.
