Fixed term contract. £95k FTE - London Based, hybrid working, 2 days a week in our Bloomsbury office.
We’re looking for a hands-on, experienced creative director or design leader to take the reins of our small but mighty in-house brand and design team at Wonderbly for nine months to cover maternity leave.
This is a full time position with a minimum of two days per week working from our central London studio. Ideally the role begins in late November to allow for some handover with our Creative Director Karen Martin and then the cover will run from January 1st to September 30th 2024.
About the role
Our Creative Director manages a small but important team of multidisciplinary creatives and designers covering three core design disciplines of brand design, content and digital product design.
This team looks after the (frankly rather wonderful) Wonderbly brand in the broadest sense, maintaining our various design systems, template libraries and other documentation and managing quality across many projects working with external partners.
The team also produces lots of direct design deliverables for internal stakeholders across the company. They produce all the content to support launches of our books for the publishing team. They manage digital design outputs for the technology group. And, most significantly, they produce the majority of our creative assets for our marketing team.
Alongside this they also deliver their own special projects throughout the year, organizing major design led projects such as our seasonal photoshoots, tentpole campaigns and annual packaging refreshes.
The Creative Director is the overall manager of all this work and sits on our Leadership team alongside other senior managers. The role reports to our Chief Product Officer Nick Marsh who is a member of the Exec team. There are three direct reports to this role and an overall team of six permanent staff and a large network of long term freelance collaborators. The role is supported by a Creative Operations team with a dedicated resource manager for this studio.
