About The Role:

Our creative Studio are the ones cooking up all the cool stuff you see on and offline. From catchy marketing campaigns to slick product content, they’re all about spreading our "most trusted" message in fun and easy-to-understand ways.

Now, let's talk about juggling - but not the circus kind! We’re all about the art of balancing creativity with practicality, whether its crafting jaw-dropping animations or simply keeping projects on track. As our Motion Design Lead, you’ll be inspiring your team of Motion Designers & 3D Artists to raise the bar creatively & bring our brand to life in pixel form.

We know we work better when we’re together, so all our AOers come into the office Monday to Friday. We collaborate more easily, have continual conversations, we’re more creative, give better support, and all this makes us more motivated and even better at what we do.

Here's What You Can Expect To Be Doing:

  • Your role will extend beyond just making things move. Using your knack for creativity and your wealth of experience, you'll also help steer projects and create a vibe that makes your team thrive.
  • You’ll be crafting motion graphics that align with our values and guidelines to bring AO’s story to life.
  • You'll be the creative spark in the team. You’ll transform briefs into captivating visuals, blending technical skill with creative brilliance.
  • Offer your team feedback that's constructive and motivating, giving them the boost they need to tackle creative challenges head-on and keep the creativity flowing.
  • Team up with other creative minds like trade & brand marketing to grasp and bring our collective vision to life, making sure we're all on the same page and communicating seamlessly.

A Few Things About You:

  • You've got an impressive portfolio demonstrating your experience in motion graphics, video editing, and visual storytelling, shining a spotlight on your expertise in After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Cinema 4D.
  • You're a senior motion designer who knows how to lead teams and bring out the best in creative talent.
  • You're the ultimate boss of your job, brief, project, idea, meeting - anything you tackle, you totally own it.
  • You’re all about nurturing connections with colleagues and clients, staying tuned in to what's happening around you.
  • You're confident in sharing your thoughts, but you're also super open to hearing different perspectives and feedback.
  • And your communication skills? They're top-notch.

A Bit About Us:

When it comes to appliances and electricals, we’ve got the lot. Washing machines? Yep. TVs? Check. Laptops? Absolutely. Everything except doorbells (just kidding, we’ve got those too).

We’re known for helping our customers brilliantly - and it’s no different for AOers. We care about more than what’s on your CV, because together we can do extraordinary things.

Our Benefits:

As an AOer, you’ll have access to tonnes of benefits, put together to cover the moments that matter to you. Further details are available on our benefits page:

  • Our Value Creation Plan; We've created a unique long term bonus plan for every AOer to share in our success, giving you the opportunity of an exceptional reward in return for exceptional business performance.
  • Holidays; 25 days, plus bank holidays (increasing to 27 days after 2 years with us!).
  • Pension; Contribute 5% of your annual salary and we'll do the same, giving you a little extra support for the future
  • Be VIP at the AO Arena; we have loads of opportunities to win free tickets and pre-sale access.
  • Health & wellbeing; discounted gym membership, an onsite spa and our Help @ Hand scheme giving you access to virtual GP’s, Mental Health support and much more.
