Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. We provide information and support, improve care, fund research, and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.

About the role

Dementia is the biggest healthcare issue currently facing us in the UK. The Alzheimer’s Society offers support to everyone living with dementia, and we aim to make a real difference to people’s lives. To help us deliver this, we’re currently looking for a Creative Designer to maximise our brand and to deliver big impact across all our design communications. Your design expertise will target different audiences across Print, Digital & Events; and you will be determined to improve both how we work, and the experience we offer with your work.

Is this you?

As our Creative Designer you’ll have a real passion for brand – and you will be able to come up with both original and tried and tested solutions to deliver design projects across the charity. You’re able to work both collaboratively (there is one other designer currently) and independently. You’ll feel comfortable designing projects from concept to finished job, working with colleagues and stakeholders at all levels across the charity and across all communications channels.  You’ll be able to influence and negotiate using your design experience and be able to build relationships both internally and externally. You’ll also be working closely with our AV team - so moving images skills would be a bonus.

About you

You will have Degree or HND in Graphic Design or equivalent industry experience.

You’ll have extensive design experience of working within a creative agency or in house creative team with knowledge of new design trends and developments within the profession. With strong and demonstrable creative digital and print design experience from a creative agency / commercial brand or large charity.

You’ll be knowledgeable about branding and brand identity, with experience in designing for social media and a sound understanding of both UI and UX design.

You’ll be able to generate original design ideas and present creative concepts.

You’ll have strong knowledge of design software – and moving image skills would be a bonus.

Knowledge of print production processes and colour management.

Excellent interpersonal skills with an ability to offer creative solutions to problems.

Able to work both collaborative and independently.

Commitment to the mission, values, and goals of Alzheimer’s Society

Our employees work hard every day to make a true difference in people's lives. We are proud to support them with a range of benefits, recognition and many options for working agilely, all contributing to a strong work life balance. We also have various learning programmes to support you in your development and help you grow to realise your potential and shape a career with Alzheimer's Society.
