Role Profile

Can you pixelate a penguin? Lay out a lion? A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a talented and experienced graphic designer to work on publications, zoo exhibits and a variety of creative projects at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL).

We’re looking for a great senior graphic designer to work on a range of design projects from marketing collateral to zoo exhibits and everything in between. You’ll be a natural problem-solver, highly creative, love sharing and exploring ideas and have an imaginative and curious mind. You’ll join a small but mighty creative team that believes in the power of storytelling to connect audiences, and you’ll help to deliver innovative design that delivers exactly that.

At present this role will be home-based following government guidelines, but in the future we expect some return to being office based at London Zoo, with occasional travel to Whipsnade Zoo

Person Specification

You’ll need a graphic design degree or equivalent, to be a whizz with creative cloud applications, the confidence to drive projects forward and the ability to work to tight deadlines without compromising accuracy or attention to detail. You’ll have excellent communication skills, and be comfortable as the sole in-house designer in a busy working environment.
