Digital Designer

Join our Marketing team

Application deadline: 30th apr 2021

About the role: Digital Designer

Egress is one of the UK's leading encryption services providers, providing award winning data security solutions to a range of clients - from small to large enterprise level organisations in both the private and public sectors. In the last three years, we have developed from a small company with big ideas, to having a multi-award winning status, a headcount of over 250 people and multiple offices across the UK and North America.

We are seeking a Digital Designer with 3+ years’ experience to work as part of a growing in-house design team. This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking for their second or third role of a design career, who wishes to build a digital portfolio (including web page design). This role will provide exposure to lots of different opportunities where you can see how your work genuinely contributes to the growth of the company.

We are looking for an individual with a desire to prove what can be achieved through design. This means that as well as passion and a good portfolio, an understanding of how audience and context affects a design is important- and you will be keen to learn about Egress and current technologies in order to inform your work. We are looking for strong attention to detail and the ability to hit the ground running, but working well with other people within the marketing team is also very important.

If you are the kind of person who can work with brand guidelines but will stretch your designs further than simply looking correct, then we want to hear from you.

In return we will give you support and a chance to progress your career, as well as generous benefits. At Egress, we are proud of our welcoming and social company culture, and we welcome people from diverse backgrounds. If you think this might be the kind of place you would like to work, then please get in touch today.
