  • Have a creative mind with the ability to conceive and develop campaigns.
  • Strive to find the story in every brief and construct a creative vision to tell that story.
  • Love the variety of work that comes from working across the creative spectrum from web, mobile, social, print, moving image and experiential.
  • Get excited in anticipation of seeing your work in public.
  • Are self-motivated and have the ability to work collaboratively internally and with external agencies and services.
  • Have no fear of speaking up, or of telling clients things they might need to know but are afraid to hear.
  • Can work and manage to deadlines.
  • Have a desire to listen, learn and stretch your current skill bases.
  • Can troubleshoot your way out of a wild west saloon.
  • Have a year or three in the real world doing something for somebody.
  • Have at least an intermediate level understanding of Adobe Creative Suite, in particular, Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.

Salary

  • circa £35,000 based on experience. That experience must be relevant to the work we do at Grand Central.

Benefits

  • 20 days per annum with an additional day after each full calendar year worked
  • A day off for your birthday off in addition to the above
