Middleweight Designer

Location: London/WFH
Salary: Competitive

The role

Concilio is a communications agency that specialises in public affairs for the property sector.

Over the past year we have grown our in house design capabilities. We now regularly win work not just because of our core public affairs function but because of the quality of our design work, both print and digital.

We have now formed Concilio Create. Whilst this predominantly provides support to our public affairs work, we have an ambition for this to be a stand alone team in Concilio, providing cutting edge design work direct to clients in support of their objectives. This work will involve the creation of content that catches the eye and pushes boundaries.

You will be a source of inspiration, bringing new ideas and concepts, constantly pushing us to provide the most creative solutions for clients.

Working alongside our existing in-house designer and front-end developer you will report to the Managing Director and help to deliver the most eye-catching, creative designs within our industry. You will also be helping to grow Concilio Create, offering you exciting career growth opportunities within an agency that is ambitious and expanding.
