This is an exciting opportunity to join a busy and high-performing marketing team within one of the country’s leading students’ unions. Leeds University Union has just gone through a new rebrand, building upgrade, and digital transformation, meaning it’s an exciting time to join and help shape the future of the Union’s communications, and also help us effectively deliver our next four-year strategic plan.

We’re looking for a talented and creative Graphic Designer to work with our in-house design team and support our communications by developing engaging creative design that will prompt thought, conversation and action amongst our members.

We’re looking for a talented designer with at least three years’ experience (in house/agency) who can demonstrate creative design skills that create compelling visuals for both online and print communications.  

With a natural passion and enthusiasm for creative design, you’ll also have an eye for great copy and have a creative edge when it comes to communicating a call to action clearly.

You’ll be working on a range of exciting projects and subject matters, including anything from weekly promotions for our bars to high-level union-wide campaigns. You’ll work with marketers and business managers to develop concepts, hooks and creative that will speak to students and positively impact on our organisation. 

If you’re up for a challenge and want to be at the forefront of creative design for Leeds students then we’d love to hear from you.

We offer 26 days’ holiday (plus generous statutory and customary closure days) and a competitive pension scheme.
