  • The ability to collaborate at a whiteboard or on paper with other creatives
  • The ability to work within existing brand guidelines, as well as the capacity to think differently and be able to challenge existing design patterns, when required
  • Excellent communication and client-facing skills, with the confidence to actively contribute to design workshops with clients, as well as helping the senior team to plan, facilitate and write up workshops
  • Strong problem-solving skills and independent self-direction
  • Experience in Agile and Lean methodologies

A creative thinker with a strong work ethic, you’ll share our positive attitude and enthusiasm for learning. You’ll take part in regular Innovation Days and knowledge sharing sessions, so we really get to know what you're passionate about.
