We’re looking for a Middleweight Creative Designer to join our growing Creative team in London. You’ll be helping our in-house agency create impactful, recognisable and delightful marketing content, and in doing so, help millions of potential customers discover, get excited about, and use Wise.

The ideal candidate will be ambitious, self-starting, and looking to build upon their career within brand and marketing.

Your Mission:

We have something really important to tell the world – you can save lots of money using Wise. The problem? Well, money isn’t the most exciting thing in the world is it? I mean, we’re competing with dogs, babies and sea shanties out there. It’s our job to make people listen. We let our imaginations run wild, thinking up crazy stories and metaphors to bring our messages to life. A bar chart showing a price comparison for money transfer services? Meh. A bar chart made out of lego on a running track for barefoot athletes to run across? Now we’re talking.

Here’s how you’ll be contributing within the Brand and Creative team:

  • You’ll be working with an exceedingly talented team of Designers, Creatives, Video Producers and Copywriters from all over the world. They’re a great bunch of people, so be prepared to make friends, not just colleagues.
  • Owning projects from start to finish, you’ll collaborate across many teams to come up with ideas, bring them to life, and follow up on performance.
  • You’ll ship anything from OOH ads, to product launches, to ‘Bread War’ content on our social page (yeah, that’s a real thing). You name it, you’ll probably do it.
  • Through iterative work, you’ll help to improve our marketing creative to perform even better.

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Develop: You’ll get to work on a variety of projects across every marketing channel, be encouraged to level up your skills with our more senior designers (and your training budget), and work with performance data to constantly improve design across marketing channels.
  • Be creative: You’ll be a big part of our ever evolving look and feel, encouraged to push boundaries and bring innovation. You’ll be a respected brand guardian.
  • Have real impact: You’ll join our exciting mission to make money without borders the new normal.

About you:

  • You have a strong portfolio of high-impact, consumer-facing work that demonstrates great typographic, layout and technical skills across all things brand and marketing.
  • You can present and communicate your ideas well.
  • You understand the ‘why’ before diving head first into the creative, and you’re able to come up with loads of creative ideas (from the weird and wonderful, to the clever and communicative).
  • Organised and able to manage your time, flex to different teams and are used to meeting tight deadlines. You thrive in a fast-paced environment.
  • You’re analytical – you understand why performance metrics are useful for marketing content, and use them to iterate on designs.
  • You have an eagle eye for detail and always give actionable feedback in a kind, fair and empathetic way.
  • Of course you’re a wiz when it comes to Adobe Creative Suite. But we also use Figma, so you’ll need to get up to speed on there too (it’s great for collaborating).
  • Bonus skills: A working use of After Effects – we want to get things moving, so some animation skills would catch our eye! We also love to see work with illustration – whether that’s creating your own, or working with illustrated assets.

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

Also, where and what you studied isn’t important to us. If you’ve got great experience, the right skills for the role and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.
