Are you experienced in creating amazing user experiences through design? Are you skilled in bringing information to life in a multi-channel environment? Would you like to use your skills to help millions of people affected by cancer across the UK? Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the best loved brands in the UK. We need you to bring that brand to life in the digital space by applying your excellent design skills to help engage and inform our audiences. You’ll be helping us reach out to people who need us, and to win the hearts and minds of those we need to support our vital work. We talk to everyone, including people affected by cancer, supporters, staff and health & social care professionals, so you’ll need experience of designing for a range of audiences. You’ll be a thorough visual design professional, able to take on a brief and produce innovative work on time. In addition you will need strong typographic skills, proficiency in relevant software (including Sketch, InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator) and a knowledge of digital processes and print production. You’ll be working closely with our Digital Experience team helping to create engaging content, interfaces and infographics for stakeholders across Macmillan. You’ll be joining a highly creative team of designers and copywriters, and will need to be comfortable collaborating with others as well as working on your own. You must also be able to build effective relationships with other teams across the organisation and prioritise your work and manage your time. In return for your skills and commitment you'll enjoy a varied work load, inspiring colleagues and the knowledge that your work will make a huge difference. Macmillan Cancer Support commits to actively developing you, and offers benefits including a 34.5 hour week (with early finish on Fridays), private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.
