Please note: This position is only available for Bachelors and Masters Degree graduates from UK universities in 2022 or 2023.

As a Graduate Animator you are passionate about using 3D models and rigs to bring characters to life. You have an eye for detail, and enjoy research to ensure your character movement is as realistic and seamless as possible

You enjoy collaborating with art teams to understand features, backstories and traits of characters, allowing you to make them move in their own unique and recognisable way. Being passionate about your craft, you’ll thrive on conducting in-depth research, and receiving and giving constructive feedback through peer review sessions to continuously improve the quality and consistency of your work.

To you, it’s the opportunity to work on something new and exciting, a project that piques your interest and pushes your boundaries. You’re the kind of person who understands the importance of collaboration and clear communication. You enjoy seeing your contribution to the bigger picture and relish the opportunity to learn from talented and respected peers.

  • A portfolio/showreel consisting of at least 3 animations that show your understanding of movement in realistic characters.
  • Working knowledge of industry leading packages such as 3DS Max, Maya and MotionBuilder
  • Ability to work on animations from concept, through source and implement into engine;
  • Familiarity with data management software (such as Perforce) is desirable

Joining Ubisoft you will contribute to a fun and friendly team that values openness and inclusivity as one of our key pillars. You will have the opportunity to learn, grow and develop your career whilst sharing our continued success as we expand our ever-growing catalogue of games.

With us, you’ll be part of a highly talented team aiming to create a whole new world for our players as we strive to successfully release the next big Ubisoft IP.

Your passion for learning and development will enable you to push boundaries and continue to grow and progress in your role, with limitless opportunities to reach your full potential.

To us, it’s more than just a job at Ubisoft. It’s a journey. It’s an experience. A way to bring players and communities together. A place to celebrate our differences. A place to grow.
