OPPORTUNITY: Intermediate Designer - Full time.

Do you want your work to inspire real change?

Looking to channel your creativity into something that can create real impact?

Curative could be the place for you.
 

Curative is looking for a special human who values creativity, collaboration and connection to join our team. This role will involve design in the fullest sense of the word including; design thinking, creative communication campaigns, web design, print design and brand/identity to help inspire real and lasting change.

To deepen our understanding, and respond to each challenge with empathy, we work together with communities as each project unfolds to imagine and create unique solutions that truly respond to their needs. We call this co-design. This approach is empowering for us, and also for the communities that we work with. But it can be challenging for designers and creative teams. So, we’re looking for someone who is interested in pushing their thinking, in exploring social issues openly, and creating truly meaningful solutions together.

 

We are looking for someone who:

  • believes in the power of clever and beautiful design

  • knows the devil is in the detail

  • loves a good to-do list, and can self-organise

  • is a strong individual, but thrives when working in a team

  • is a superstar communicator and great listener

  • is always up for a challenge and open to working in new ways

  • can design with, and for, others and appreciates feedback

  • is expert at understanding audience insights and translating those into creative execution

  • is passionate about learning new things and stretching their creativity

  • has a huge heart and extraordinary empathy  

  • is an experienced designer with skills using:

  • Adobe Creative Suite (particularly Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop)

  • Microsoft Office Suite; in particular Powerpoint

  • Basic understanding of HTML & CSS

  • Familiarity with Digital CMS Platforms such as WIX, SquareSpace, Strikingly

 

If you join us, we promise to:

  • Always have your back; some of the social issues we work on can be quite challenging, so we work hard to support our teams well-being and nurture your creativity

  • Play, create and challenge the status quo; it’s important to us to keep inventing and exploring new ideas so that we can create magic and build momentum

  • Help you see the world through other people’s eyes; to deepen our understanding, and respond to each challenge with empathy, we work together with communities as each project unfolds to imagine and create unique solutions that truly respond to their needs

  • Laugh, dance, cry and drink a lot of tea together; at Curative we encourage you to be your whole beautiful self. We need to be real and human to do the work we do, and while we try to bring as much joy as we can, sometimes we need to recognise that things are tough - but we do it all together.  

 

Our clients are changemakers who share our values, from local and central government, NGO’s, not-for-profits, philanthropists and businesses that care. We work with the challengers, the visionaries and the brave. As such this role requires an individual who can really listen to what is needed and navigate the requirements and sensitivities to produce work that will help make the world a little bit better.

5+ years experience in a creative agency or in-house design role is essential, but ultimately we’re really looking for someone who fits the Curative culture, someone who is prepared to give anything a go, and someone who can see any design task from project brief to completion.
