The Marketing Design team is one of six groups within The Telegraph’s Design department. Collaborating with other design areas such as Product Design, Visual Storytelling, Editorial, Graphics, and Video, the Marketing Design team promotes both editorial and subscription initiatives. From conceptual stage through to roll out across multiple channels including in-paper, onsite display, OOH, and social, the Marketing Design team covers a wide range of projects – making sure that the reader is always at the heart of everything we do.

We are looking for a highly creative Mid-Weight Designer to work in collaboration with the Senior Designers, and reporting to the Art Director. Working closely with a multi-disciplinary team of marketers, data analysts, CRM specialists, and other design areas, the Marketing Design team has a fundamental role to play in helping The Telegraph achieve its subscription target.

  • Guide and advise more junior members of the team, helping them to develop and grow, and allowing your own leadership ability and collaboration skills to flourish
