This role will be based on the University campus, with scope for it to be undertaken in a hybrid manner. We are open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

Would you like to play a central creative role within a rapidly expanding team? Do you have a talent for developing new design concepts? Are you able to interpret the ideas of others as well as communicate your own ideas clearly?

We are looking for a digitally focused professional who can bring originality and a creative flair to the Digital Education Service’s team of graphic designers, animators and learning technologists. You will work on high profile cross-university projects to support the design of online courses on external platforms including FutureLearn and Coursera, and the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (Minerva).

This exciting role will suit an individual with proven experience in digital creative design, a willingness to learn and adapt on the job, and with excellent communication and organisational skills. You will have responsibility for the production of design concepts and engaging multimedia visuals for the University’s portfolio of online, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and credit-bearing courses.

You should be able to evidence experience of defining brand and visual identities, as well as designing web-based content and promotional material. This role will involve working closely with the Creative Lead and Creative and Learning Technology Manager, as well as with Content and Production personnel within the Digital Education Service.
