Senior Visual Designer (UI), Commercial Team, Holborn, B16 & up to 30% bonus and benefits. #LI-CB1.

What will you be doing:

As a Senior Visual Designer (UI), you will be an integral part of driving Premier Inn, Hub and other sub hotel brands success by shaping the visual design (UI) of our web-based platforms and native apps (android and iOS) to ultimately drive traffic. Working with other digital teams, you will help enable a cohesive consumer experience and visual hierarchy, while supporting the evolution of style-guides, design principles and frameworks. You will be working for a business that provides an environment where you will be supported in your development and be exposed to the wider digital business.

We work in an inclusive environment, based in Holborn, London. With a non-corporate feel, the digital team is co-located, including engineers, designers, product, delivery, content, Q/A, marketing and brand. There are many interesting design challenges and a great work culture.


Why we would like you to apply:

You have expert level skills in design software including - Sketch app, invision, CC suite.


You get excited by working in a collaborative environment, where you bring your colleagues and wider teams together. You have a problem-solving mentality, which will help you form robust briefs and ensure that design phases are factored in (planned in) and structured.

Curious by nature you will want to develop your knowledge of lean and agile design and delivery methodologies and understanding of front-end code (e.g. HTML 5, CSS, JS).

The idea of working for a brand that is straight forward, not too serious, genuine and committed stands out to you.
