Havas Lynx is a global communications group, formed from Creative Lynx and Havas 4D, leading digital agencies in Europe and the USA respectively. With 250 employees and supported by the wider Havas network, we deliver truly global campaigns based on robust local insight. As a group we have been responsible for a series of industry firsts in social media, closed-loop marketing and mobile. We actively partner with Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Stanford Persuasive Tech Lab and practice fusion and these partnerships facilitate our ability to innovate on behalf of our clients across the healthcare, education and culture sectors. Blending this innovation with sector insight and design pedigree, our team of over 125 professionals, based in the heart of Manchester city centre comprise our European head office, from which we work closely with colleagues in London and New York.
We are proud winners of prestigious awards for effectiveness and innovation, and as part of our continued growth, we now have an opportunity for an experienced Designer to join our team.
Our existing team is made up of extremely strong creatives at a range of levels and we are looking for someone who is flexible and broad ranging in their approach to complement this dynamic. We are seeking candidates with at least 4/5 years agency experience and your portfolio should include a strong range of work, including digital, print, branding and conceptual examples.
We work with an extremely broad range of clients, from global pharmaceutical businesses through to public sector organisations, local restaurants and universities. What we would love to see in your portfolio are great ideas and an ability to hit the right tone in a variety of styles and approaches. It goes without saying that you’ll also need excellent mac skills and that you’re happy working as part of a fast paced, busy team. You should be flexible in your approach and confident to work with contacts both internally within the agency and externally when required. You should be comfortable and experienced in sharing your ideas with others, taking suggestions on board and also mentoring more junior members of the team.
In return, we offer an excellent working environment, we’re centrally located, extremely busy and your appointment will be part of planned expansion across the business as a whole. This is a permanent position; however we would also be very happy to hear from freelancers who are interested in working with us both now and in the future.
Interested applicants should apply to Sophie Jackson via firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your CV, a covering letter and most importantly, your portfolio. If you’d prefer to have an initial, informal conversation, call Sophie on 0161 200 6932.
