al-logo ams-logo automotive-it-logo
This is ideally a full-time role, but we would consider fully remote or part-time working to suit your needs. More important to us is to have a brilliant graphic designer as part of our team.
The role:
We are currently looking to hire a midweight Graphic Designer to work across our portfolio of content, publishing and event channels, including producing collateral and helping to deliver websites, digital publications, bespoke reports and products, livestream and digital events. You will be key in creating and shaping the design aesthetic and user experience of all of our products across the business.
You will create a range of items including layouts, web banners and infographics, with the potential to contribute creative work in video and illustration, too; you will create great design work for marketing and custom content for our own content and publishing requirements as well as those, at times, for our clients directly.
Your digital design skills will be really important too for growing online UX across all of our B2B automotive platforms. Normally we include print magazines and physical events in our portfolio but for now they are on hold, as we put all our efforts around digital. However, they will again play roles in the business and so print skills and experience are a plus.
You will have a minimum of 3 years’ experience at an agency, publisher or in house design team, with a proven record in editorial design. Interactive design skills will be a strong advantage, as will experience in website design and coding.
A bit more about us:
We are Ultima Media, a global B2B media business with a legacy in print publishing that evolved to include physical events that has accelerated its transition through the Covid-19 crisis. Our role is to give our audiences a decisive edge, through news, insight and intelligence. Content sits at the heart of our business and around it the experience our audiences feel when engaging with our products.
Our products include livestreams, webinars, digital editions, podcasts, digital events and conferences, custom book publishing, content marketing and video. We want you to continue to bring all of this content to life.
We are an equal opportunities employer and we encourage applications from all suitably qualified candidates regardless of their race, sex, gender identity, disability, religion/belief or sexual orientation.
What can you bring to this role:
  • A positive mindset, a love of all things design and a great work ethic
  • A desire to grow and develop your skills further
  • Experience of creating innovative design for B2B and digital products
  • Great all-round design skills with a curiosity for all sorts of multi-platform and interactive content

  • Working knowledge of print and digital production best-practices and techniques
  • A keen eye for detail
  • Excellent ability to work under pressure on multiple projects at pace
  • An outstanding portfolio, across both print and digital, that you are proud of and that made a difference

What we offer:
