Responsible to: Head of Marketing.
Location: Kimbolton, Cambridgeshire/Hybrid
Hours of Work: 40 hours a week. Monday to Friday 8:30 – 17:00 (30-minutes lunch break)
Purpose of the Post
We’re looking for an enthusiastic, confident Graphic Designer to join the marketing team at ISN Europe, with a focus on the ToolTruck brand.
We want you to “Own” the visual output for the ToolTruck brand bringing your own unique style to printed literature, as well as corporate literature, social media and e-mail templates for systems such as Klavyio.
You will need to be proficient in:
- Adobe InDesign for page layout
- Adobe Photoshop for image editing
- Adobe Illustrator for vector artwork
- Adobe Acrobat for artwork creation and proofing
Ideally, you’ll be trained in typography and graphic design to HND or Degree level. A good working knowledge of printing and finishing will be required, together with an ability to write print specifications and prepare compatible artwork. There is also a need to understand the requirements and limitations of designing for web and social media (asset creation). Experience with photography/video would also be of interest.
We’re looking for someone with an ability to “bring promotions to life”; it goes without saying, you will be a self-starter, able to work to tight deadlines with limited supervision. You’ll need strong inter-personal skills, as you will be liaising with a number of people throughout your working day, including product specialists and suppliers. You will need to demonstrate excellent organisational and time management skills.
An excellent command of English and grammar, together with proof-reading skills would be a distinct advantage.
To begin with, your focus will be on the design and production of monthly and bi-monthly promotional literature, which is printed and distributed to end users, through a network of dealers, and also made available online. This will involve sourcing images from an image library and content from various internal and external sources.
Additional ad hoc design for things such as product packaging, exhibitions, company vehicles will also be required and, from time to time, other design work required throughout the ISN Europe group of companies
Previous work experience would of course be invaluable, and ideally your portfolio of work would be great to see.
The role will be based at our Kimbolton office but there is an opportunity for hybrid office/home working, which can be discussed and agreed later in the process. That said, there is likely to be a need to visit the ToolTruck office in Norwich once or twice a month, so it would be helpful if the successful candidate has a full driving licence
