We are looking to appoint a professional Digital Designer & Reprographics Administrator to make an impact on the visual environment and our professional communication, and through brilliant design of learning materials, support the academic progress of our students too.
As a Digital Designer you will develop our brand design/communication, which will be evident through in-school displays, external publications, social media, newsletter, banners/signs, leaflets and poster design. You will impact on the quality of home learning and in-school classroom resources by creating e-booklets for students to complete, as well as hard copies of materials. These will need a sound design, which works with the overall school brand alongside Faculty specific approaches. The Reprographics element of the role is to copy resources where hard copies are required, with excellent turn-around time and attention to detail.
You will need to be creative, able to work to a brief, and with a clear understanding of your audience – whether staff, parents, students or community. You will be committed to teamwork and also able to use your initiative, working independently with great attention to detail. This role will enable you to utilise your creative, organisational, problem solving and communication skills. We warmly welcome applications from newly-qualified or experienced designers; the key is that you want to make a positive impact on our school communication and are prepared to learn rapidly!
