The job...

We are looking for a Senior Animator to join our Global Creative Team and help bring our work to life.

  • Ability to edit live action footage, clean up audio and add additional post production elements, including on-screen graphics, VFX and subtitles.
  • Ability to create dynamic and engagement motion graphics.
  • Detailed knowledge of the workflows and methods involved in all animation types.
  • Great storytelling skills, with the ability to create emotive mood films for new business pitches and other applications.
  • Good communication and presentation skills.

The person we’re looking for...

  • Able to follow an artistic vision and interpret feedback and direction accurately.
  • Able to interpret storyboards and take them through to final animation.
  • Takes ownership and accountability, always seeing things through to completion.
  • An imaginative thinker, excited about possibilities, solving complex challenges and trying out new ideas.
  • A multi-tasker, happy and in flow when you are working on multiple projects at once.
  • Obsessed with quality.
