BAG of BEES are looking for a great designer to join our teeny tiny team in Belfast, N.Ireland.
This person will be our first member of staff and needs to be ready to get stuck-in to our workflow straight away. For some individuals the quirks of this job may not be their cup of tea (we acknowledge that this is a strange thing to write in a job ad), but the right person will see it as an opportunity to join a friendly, hard working and –oh, go on then– talented company with real aspirations to do better every year.
What are we looking for?
Being a small operation means that we have very defined needs, so like Liam Neeson you need to have a very particular set of skills…
• Website Production
It is vital that the applicant will be able to code a website like as the examples in our portfolio, from scratch and at a reasonable pace. The perfect applicant will be capable of even more advanced techniques than us, so we can just mull around in the background clapping and feeding them coffee.
• Website Design
We have developed a good way of doing things that has been refined over many years. Our shiny new designer must be able to work with a client to develop a plan for their website, through to wireframing and eventually ‘colouring-in’.
• Graphic Design. For Print & Branding
Branding is a big part of what we do. A good applicant will be able to work from a client brief (sometimes horrendously vague) and design logos that are clever, thoughtful and attractive.
We do not design anything for the applause from other designers, we design stuff that works for the needs of our clients. If you are the sort of designer who throws a strop when a client makes changes to your design then, put simply, do not apply. If you are a self-motivated individual who is willing to pitch-in and help when needed then you’ll be perfect.
How do you apply?
All we need to see is a PDF with 3 of your best pieces of work in it and your employment record (which should have at least a couple of years experience in an agency). Since we are looking for someone with code skills specifically a link to your personal portfolio site would also be good.
We don’t need to see a detailed university record, but you should have completed a relevant course. We don’t need to know your A-level results and we really don’t need your GCSEs. If you have any genuine quotes or testimonials from clients you worked with please include them, it’d never hurt.
