Now Hiring: Mid-weight Designer

18 January 2023
Hiring Mw D Web Social

We’ve got big plans for 2023, plans that require a full-time, Mid-weight designer to join our growing team.

We’re looking for someone with a cracking portfolio — that shows off their talent, ideas and creative thinking. Someone who wants to create world-class work for world-class brands, has passion for every opportunity, and has the desire to push every brief to the next level.

Someone who is a confident communicator, who can articulate their ideas both internally to the team and externally to our clients — and has strong opinions (loosely held).

Someone who will work alongside our design team to translate creative strategy into standout creative across the full breadth of a brand, and who is just as comfortable starting from scratch as developing designs based on feedback.

Tldr; someone with a portfolio bursting with ideas who wants to take the next step in their career.

What we want from you:

— Experience. 3–5 years in a hands-on role creating brands (and ideally some packaging).

– Enthusiasm. We want someone who’s as excited about our work as we are.

– Creative flair. Scare us. Excite us. Inspire us.

– A voice. Someone who’s not afraid to be vocal, to challenge us, and to contribute ideas.

– Initiative and ambition. We want someone who can hit the ground running, brief in hand.

– A finger (or 10) on the pulse. We want someone who is curious about the wider world — not just their own.

— Intuition. Know when to follow the rules, and when to smash them to pieces.

What we want from the role:

– Create and develop stand out creative work.

– Support the creation of internal strategic processes.

– Work cohesively with the wider team.

– Help support and develop junior team members.

– Provide timely and constructive feedback to help move projects forward.

– Confidently present work and ideas to both the internal team and clients.

– An eye for craft and attention to detail.

What you can expect from us:

— Salary of £25,000 — £33,000 (DOE)

— Transparent, performance-related bonus

— Hybrid working, based from our new studio in central Leeds (We’d like 1-2 days in the studio a week. But feel free to come in full-time if you prefer)

— Macbook Pro & 2 screens (one for home, one for the studio) provided

— 28 days holiday (plus statutory like bank holidays)

— Inspiration days

— Skills and training allowance

— Cycle-to-work and Tech-schemes

— Annual team trips

— Annual reviews and progression plans, with regular check-ins available

Worth bearing in mind:

We’re open minded. We’re looking for the person — not the job description. So if you’d like to be part of our team, we want to hear from you. You might be just what we’re after... we just didn’t realise it.

About Robot Food:

Robot Food is a strategic branding agency working with the most progressive global brands from our home in Leeds.

We believe in doing good work, for good people, for good money. We build brands people actually want, that answer a genuine need. Ones that make you think ‘why the hell didn’t this exist before?’. We work with clients who have ambition and trust our approach; the type of clients who see the bigger picture and work in purpose driven businesses aiming to do better.

We know everyone says they’re different, but we’ve never done ‘agency’ like everyone else. We’re passionate about the work we do and the impact it makes.

We’re always on the hunt for the next big opportunity to do something that’s never been done before. We’re a tight-knit group of likeminded people who put everything in, to get the best out of each other. We love our work but leave time to play too.

Robot Food is commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace and is an equal opportunities employer.
