We are looking for experienced and talented mid-range Graphic Designers to help with the extensive workload at Brent Council. As well as producing the majority of the council’s communications materials, the design team enforce the council’s agreed design standards across multiple communications platforms, including guidance on the use of the corporate identity. Working with the Design Team Leader, you will create both print and online designs with exceptional visual impact generally in keeping with our brand guidelines. Working largely to agreed briefs, you will be required to actively suggest creative ideas and bring work to fruition from concept to implementation. You must have good organisational skills, a keen eye for detail and the ability to think on your feet.
You will have creative design flare and be highly skilled in using InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. The role is primarily a graphic design one, working within the house style – but often outside of it – preparing, for example, magazines, multi-page reports, brochures, flyers, posters, infographics, and also large signage banners. The work is varied and interesting and requires a designer who can multi-task and handle tight deadlines. There is also a small amount of web work, so knowledge of web graphic principles is a bonus. The candidates would also need to know their way around Microsoft Word and Excel. If that sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
We are looking mainly for designers to work remotely on their own Apple Macs at home. Occasionally, you might be asked to come into the Brent Civic Centre in Wembley.
