This is a particularly exciting time to join Malcolm Hollis as we are mid-way through a rebrand project due to launch this summer. This role will be instrumental in ensuring that we maintain the integrity of the new visual identity over the long term. It’s the first role of its kind at Malcolm Hollis and presents a unique opportunity to grow the company’s internal design capability. We’re looking for someone who can balance creative flair with attention to detail and a pragmatism to get the job done. This will be a hands on role where you will have the opportunity to coordinate, create and produce a whole range of branded material that is instrumental to enabling us to deliver our marketing plan. Whilst an emphasis of the role is focused on production of assets and collateral, there will also be an element of project managing the design process working with external agencies, so we’re really looking for someone with a hybrid of skills.
