Senior Creative (Up to £40,000)

Got a portfolio full of creative ideas and design that makes us say ‘we wish we’d thought of that’?

If you were a venn diagram, you’d be the overlap between conceptual ideas, traditional design craft and contemporary digital creative. You have a way with words and can come up with your own messaging as well as working well with copywriters in the time-honoured pairing of skills. You can breathe life into design visuals and can guide others to do the same. Interactivity and motion are second nature, and you have real enthusiasm for trying new things – be it VR experiences or coming up with film concepts.

Most of all you’re looking for the unexpected, where you can fight for ideas that challenge yourself and us creatively; delivering something amazing for our clients.

We’re Synergy, the go-to employee engagement specialists. We believe in the power of people. We work with brands to turn these ambitions into actions – inspiring people to delight colleagues and customers, transform cultures and make a difference. We do all this by creating effective, fun and insight-driven ideas and experiences that really connect with employees. It’s powerful stuff. Because when you tap into the power of your people, everything is possible.

We work with clients like ODEON, Vodafone, RBS, Argos and Lidl, producing everything from VR experiences to global rebrands and everything in between.

We’re a good bunch. We look for real team players, with dedication and passion for the role and the ability to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in.

We’re a Design Week Top 100 agency, were named in The Drum’s independent Agency Census, and this year has been our biggest yet with some great new account wins, lots of new team members, and an awards cabinet bursting at the hinges. Come and be part of something special.
