The Students’ Union at Bournemouth University (SUBU) is recruiting a new full-time Design Team Leader. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to join a high performing, busy and dynamic marketing team. You’ll be leading on the creation of audience-focused communications as part of integrated marketing campaigns, so you’ll be as happy producing content for the web or digital signage as you are creating print work using Adobe Creative Suite.

We need somebody with experience and skills in producing striking artwork and typeset design, together with a talent for writing great copy. You will have bags of unbridled creativity which you can apply to producing anything from eye-catching event posters to informative infographics and 64 page magazines. You’ll need to be a people person too – someone who can work well with the internal clients we service and also someone who can bring the best out of student and freelance designers on the team. You will be able to bring great ideas to the table but able to be challenged on them and work to find solutions that work for everyone. You will have well-honed planning skills and be used to bringing design projects in on budget.

Our communications output couldn’t be more varied and the Design Team Leader will be pivotal to ensuring we maintain a strong visual style and brand that engages effectively with our members, prompting thought, conversation and action.

In return, we offer you the chance to work across a wide spectrum of marketing channels in a supportive and creative environment.

If this sounds like the perfect position for you then please download the job information, complete and return your application form to us.
