Graphic Designer - May 2016

Role: Graphic Designer

What is the job about?

Join a team responsible for communicating the agency’s work and potential to our clients and prospects.  This is a new role in our expanding Business Services team, reporting to our Design Manager.

At its heart, this role is about making BVA BDRC Group’s communication even better.  We’re good with words, we’re exceptional with numbers and we’re really great at graphs and charts. Our web and social media copy has a high follow rate and take up.  However, we know we can improve further our visual and multimedia communication.

Clients for our market research, predominantly in B2C service sectors, often have to communicate complex research and strategic recommendations to time-poor internal clients.  Illustrations, infographics, motion graphics and video, viewed on anything from smartphones to large screens, can all help their job.  A clear, strong narrative is critical in adding value to their research investment.  Any design must be credible, clear and engaging.

The same is true of our marketing content, which must engage with readers across varied channels and encourage them to work with us.
