We’re expanding and are looking for an experienced Creative Lead to join our London-based design team, working for clients like Google, Apple, Burberry, Dior, Clinique and Lululemon. We’re looking for someone at the top of their game when it comes to conceptual thinking, creative development, technical knowledge and upholding the quality of their teams’ output.
You’ll bring a head-turning approach to projects both small and large, along with discipline and organisation. You’ll lead and own the conceptual ideas, development, quality control and completion of all you and your team's work and will be comfortable taking project briefs from treatment through to final delivery. This is a client-facing role, so experience and confidence in collaborating with brand and agency teams is a must.
From a technical point of view, we expect you to be fully on the pulse. Excellent working knowledge of Cinema4D, Houdini, Redshift and Octane is a must, with experience in Unreal Engine being a big plus point.
Creatively, conceptual thinking and R&D are a core part of our practice, so you’ll respect a project brief and requirements, but also have the drive to try ideas and push yourself, and our clients, out of their comfort zone.
And finally, there is a team management facet to this role, so you’ll have a nurturing side, be looking out for the design team, imparting your knowledge and mentoring those you work with, as well as taking an active role in our external support schemes.
This role is full-time and will require some of your time in our London office on a regular basis. We’re completely open to your background and experience – you might be someone already working for a small independent studio wanting to work on projects with more profile. Perhaps you’re someone looking to take the step up into a more senior role, with more responsibility and autonomy. Or you’re working in-house at a leading brand and networked agency, looking to make use of that experience across multiple sectors.
Found is a growing, dynamic company with an open, warm and inclusive culture that strives to nurture and develop everyone in the team.
We offer salary depending on experience, with up to 10% of your salary on top by way of performance bonus each year, 25 days holiday per year plus Christmas shutdown, private healthcare, the ability to work flexibly, annual appraisals and personal development plans, monthly 121s, sabbaticals after 5 & 10 years and your own training budget. We also work with Ecologi to offset our business and teams’ carbon footprints, meaning every one of our staff members is climate positive.
These are exciting times - we’d love you to join us.
