Your role in the team

As a Senior Motion Graphics Designer, you’ll be responsible for working primarily with our Content team to help bring our vision to life. We are all about our learners, so you will be creating and developing engaging, informative and fun content that will help drive levels of customer engagement and satisfaction.

You’ll be part of a Digital Media Unit which specialises in creating instructional content. You will be involved from the start of the process, understanding the subjects and topics relevant to the course content for the given project, and delivering advice, ideas, and media to convey necessary information in an engaging manner on a course-by-course basis.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with content authors and subject matter experts to storyboard ideas and concepts.
  • Managing end-to-end a variety of creative requests (including taking a brief, proposal creation, presentation of ideas and solutions, and post production analysis and recommendations).
  • Leading the workflows from various sources whilst collaborating and coaching others in aspects of motion graphic design.
  • Create vibrant, informative and engaging motion graphics for our training courses.
  • Work alongside our in-house videographer to augment our video assets and elevate them to the next level.
  • Potential for line management in this role depending on experience.

What we're looking for

  • Strong working knowledge and understanding of Adobe After Effects.
  • Experience with character-based design, rigging and animation.
  • Ability of tracking live action content to add VFX flourishes.
  • An engaging, varied portfolio to back it up.
  • 2D Skills that drive and deliver creative compositions and post-productions.
  • A solid understanding of brand and ability to convey a brand message through motion.
  • Good logistical / organisational skills for planning complex projects.
  • You will be comfortable presenting to stakeholders, project teams and external clients or partners.
  • Able to work remotely as part of a cross-team initiative.

Our people are at the heart of our business and we offer a great environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you'll need for a rewarding career with a team who are passionate about what they do. This is backed by our recent 3 star accreditation, the highest accolade from Best Companies achieved through our ‘world class’ levels of engagement.

We are fully committed to supporting our staff to work in a flexible way that allows them to balance all of their commitments both inside and outside of work. As we move forward and grow we are committed to supporting our teams to work in a way that lets them be at their best, whether that’s on-site or remotely anywhere in the UK, traditional or flexible working hours.

We'll welcome you on-board with 24 days holiday (plus 8 bank holidays) with the opportunity to buy additional holiday if you fancy an extended break, a great annual bonus scheme, the latest mobile phone and contract (that’s on us!), and a staff benefits scheme (with over 250 discounts and offers available).

We also offer free life insurance (which covers 4-times your salary), private medical insurance for you and your family and an attractive pension package.

Having fun both inside and outside work is really important to us so we have a highly motivated social committee who organise regular social events which previously ranged from escape rooms, meals out and bowling to Tough Mudders. They’ve even worked hard to keep the fun going virtually since we’ve all been unable to get together.

Our head office is in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. In response to Covid-19 we are currently operating as a fully remote business. We are following government guidelines closely and all employees are working from home wherever possible until further notice. We are open to applications no matter where you are located in the UK and we have moved our interview and onboarding process to be fully virtual.

Having recently been awarded the prestigious accolade from Best Companies for our ‘world class’ levels of engagement, we secured our place as the 6th best company to work for in the Education and Training sector and the 19th best small company to work for in the UK and we have no plans to stop there.
