  • Ideally experience of working for company in Media Entertainment and preferably with a focus on the children's market.
  • Articulate and eloquent, with the ability to bring an idea to life. You will be working predominantly in the children’s arena, so you must have a sense of fun, adventure and be able to relate to children and child-hood.

  • Ideally HTML5, JavaScript and CSS skills. Competent Photoshop skills are essential, preferably with experience using Dreamweaver and different CMSs.
