Job Description

Attacat already have quite distinctive branding, however we need someone who can bring this to life on a day to day basis and ultimately do the same for our clients.

We are currently carrying out a major overhaul of internal processes and procedures.  Part of this will include a refresh of all our supporting and marketing collateral including the website, reporting and indeed all round explanation of what we do.  Your role will be to add the creative flair required to make it all interesting, easily understood and visually appealing.  This is a service that will also appeal to our clients.

The bulk of your time is likely to be spent on the visualisation of concepts and data. Specific tasks will include adding visuals to how-to guides, blog posts, manuals, sales literature etc working in conjunction with our writers and online marketing team.  You’d also be required to design the overall layouts of such material.  You’d also have the opportunity to work with our conversion rate optimisation team to produce website wireframes and turn these into PSDs.  Being an online marketing company, we will inevitably get requests to produce infographics.

Required:

-          Adobe Photoshop

-          Adobe Illustrator

-          Visual communication

-          Good listener

-          Patience (we are good at saying what we don’t want, less good at explaining what we do want!)

-          Initiative

-          Excellent verbal communication skills

 Advantageous:

-          Web design

-          UX design

-          Illustration

-          Semiotics

-          Comfortable working in fast-past and sometimes noisy environment

Qualifications

-          Degree (minimum 2.1) in relevant subject such as Graphic Design, Visual Communication

Benefits

You can expect to be able to take your existing skill set, add in a bit of internet marketing knowledge from us and, hey presto, you’ll be well on your way to a successful career.  You’ll then be able to negotiate really hard with us when it comes round to us trying to persuade you to stay with us after 12 months!

We are also willing to support external training if you wish.
