You’ll be working with other designers alongside copywriters, web-developers, environmental consultants, scientists and people from diverse backgrounds to help produce high quality content that engages our target audiences.

  • Support our team in delivering creative communications for many different organisations and projects in the UK and Europe.
  • Design and produce a wide range of communications for print, digital and multimedia, including web interfaces, social media graphics, publications, infographics, signage and exhibitions.
  • Collaborate with web developers to create innovative tools to communicate complex information.
  • Work with our suppliers to oversee the production, delivery and installation of communication materials.
  • Work with people from other organisations on partnership projects, including attending and contributing to meetings online and in-person.
  • Keep a record of your work for the purpose of project monitoring and reporting.
