Meeting Place exists to ensure the built environment is a catalyst for positive change. We provide consultancy and communications services – including public relations, political engagement, consultation, social value and campaign support for new and exciting developments across the country. Our clients range from house builders to renewable energy, retail, commercial and infrastructure.
We are currently looking for a Senior Designer to join our creative team. As an experienced, versatile designer you’ll be a key member of a busy team creating print and digital comms, newsletters, displays, and presentations for the wider business and our clients. You’ll make an important contribution to evolving the Meeting Place offer and shaping the growing creative team, as well as play an ongoing brand guardianship role.
Our business is growing rapidly, and we need someone with the capabilities, enthusiasm and passion to help deliver the work and drive us forward – striving for high standards of thinking and delivery across all our output – in what is a fast-paced environment.
This role would suit experienced agency folk who fancy something different or current in-house designers looking for something new.
Who we’re looking for
Excellent design communication skills: You’ll be able to receive content, help create the brief with your internal client, and deliver the appropriate design to communicate the key messages effectively. Strong layout and typographic skills are essential.
Strategic thinker: We expect you to think strategically about what you are designing and why, to deliver the most effective work.
Rock solid attention-to-detail: You need to be meticulous and accurate – you will often be the last pair of eyes on your work before it goes to print or published online.
Design experience: You’ll have at least 3 years of commercial experience in a design agency or in-house creative team, designing for print and digital comms.
Excellent communications and project management skills: This role requires liaising with lots of people internally, you’ll need to be able to build solid and trusting relationships with your internal clients and teammates, and you’ll need enough project management skills to see your projects through.
Excellent knowledge of Adobe Creative Cloud: Goes without saying that you’ll live and die in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop – but you’ve probably got practical skills in Office and other more modern design tools too.
We’d love it if you had experience or interest in:
Digital: We produce an ever-increasing amount of digital-only content, including lots of websites.
Video production, editing and motion graphics: This is an emerging need for us – a passion or working interest would be advantageous to us and interesting for you.
