  • strong layout skills with an eye for detail
  • learning new skills related to design and marketing related activities

  • experience of working on social media

  • Proven expertise in the use of Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, particularly InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator
  • Good knowledge of print and production processes
  • An understanding of design best practice
  • Experience in artworking
  • Proof reading and editing skills

Finally, any prospective candidates will be asked to present a strong portfolio demonstrating your skillset as a creative graphic designer and your ability to use Adobe Creative Cloud.

  • Strong communication skills
