Job Description

We’re looking for a creative and passionate designer to join our busy team, and use their exceptional design skills to make a difference to the lives of seriously ill children.

As one of our in-house designers, you will initiate and deliver strong concepts and design work to satisfy creative briefs for both digital and print. You’ll lead on a variety of creative projects to support fundraising, engagement and brand activation activity across the charity and hospital.

About the Team

The Design team plays a vital role in communicating the urgent need to fund the work of Great Ormond Street Hospital. The team is part of Brand Marketing & Creative which in turn sits under the Marketing & Communications directorate. We work to elevate the profile of the charity and hospital brands, and build support for the cause.

The Designer is line-managed by the Senior Designer. The Design team has three Designers, two Senior Designers, one Junior Designer and reports to the Design Manager. Everyone in the team has the opportunity to work on varied and interesting projects.

About You

You are passionate about design and motivated to use your skills as a force for good. Resourceful and organised, you’re comfortable managing multiple projects and working both independently and collaboratively.

You’re happy taking a brief from initial concepts through to final delivery of artwork, and you’re able to generate design solutions that are inspiring and on-brand. You are a creative thinker but have a practical, delivery-focused approach.

You’ll also have great people skills, building strong relationships with your colleagues in the Design team and across the charity.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • experience of designing for print and digital
  • experience of working within an in-house design team, ideally in the charity sector
  • experience of working with brand guidelines and embedding them across your work
  • the ability to champion the brand, acting as a guardian and ensuring the integrity of our brand identity
  • strong stakeholder management and influencing skills
  • a passion for making a difference to the lives of seriously ill children across the UK.
About the charity

Every day brings new challenges at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Every day, over 600 seriously ill children from across the UK arrive for life-changing treatments. Every day, young lives hang in the balance as patients, families and staff battle the most complex illnesses. And every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children – and change the world. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. Without donations, Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity can’t help fund ground-breaking research, advanced equipment, child and family support services, and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities. Our staff help to raise these vital funds for the hospital. A better future for seriously ill children starts with you.

Recently awarded with a ‘Best Companies 2-star accreditation' and placed number 17 on the 2019 Sunday Times Best 100 Not-for-Profit Companies list – we offer a range of attractive benefits including; a flexible approach to working, 30 days holiday, life assurance, enhanced employer pension contributions, and a discounted season ticket loan.
