The role

Ideally we are looking for someone with a strong interest in both print and digital design with skills that cross both on and offline media.

You will require excellent computer skills, particularly Adobe CC Suite as well as impeccable literacy, numeracy and attention to detail. You will be offered on the job training plus any additional remote self-learning as required.
We are currently all working from home, but a suitable computer and access to all software required will be provided.

You will be expected to have a can-do attitude.
