Optivo
As our Graphic Designer you’ll have the opportunity to promote the Optivo brand across a variety of channels. 

Working as part of a busy Communications Team in the housing sector, you’ll create modern and forward thinking designs appropriate for our various stakeholders. Your creativity will allow you to produce and support design work for use across our communications channels, including printed & digital publications, newsletters, email, social media and our websites.

You’ll play a pivotal role in how we reach others with key messages and will use your expertise to explore improvements to the way we communicate.

Your work will be used in campaigns aimed at internal and external audiences. You’ll lead on the production and delivery of our in-house digital staff newsletter.  You’ll also design the digital and printed editions of our resident newsletters.


You’ll also be responsible for advising and supporting customers with design request in line with our corporate brand guidelines, internal processes and industry best practise.

This is an exciting and varied role, and offers the right person an excellent opportunity to showcase their talent.

You’ll need a minimum of 2 years’ experience of graphic design in a business environment and will hold a relevant qualification for graphic design.

Hands on experience of programmes within the Adobe Creative Cloud suite (e.g. InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop, Acrobat) are essential and strong knowledge of  Microsoft Office tools (e.g. Word, Excel, PowerPoint) would be favourable. The ability to pick up and use other digital programmes is also beneficial.
You’ll ideally have experience working on multi-channel campaigns and will be able to draw on experience of leading on design projects, from conception to delivery.

This role requires the successful candidate to have exceptional written, verbal and non-verbal communication skills. You’ll be able to work independently and as part of a team. You’ll need to be flexible and willing to take on new tasks as priorities change.


*This role will be office based but there will be the opportunity for some flexibility to allow working from home (to be agreed with your line manager in line with Optivo’s wider working procedures). Travel between office locations and other Optivo’s operating areas sites will be required occasionally.


^ Please note: the role offers a maximum of 30 hours a week but for the right candidate we are open to you working fewer hours (minimum of 25 hours per week) if this is your preference.

Closing date for applications: 16th May 2021

Shortlisting will take place on 17th and 18th May 2021

Interviews will be conducted via Microsoft Teams video link and will take place on Monday 24th  May, Tuesday 25th  May or Friday 8th  May 2021.

Please ensure you complete your application in full as Hiring Managers will not have visibility of your CV upon application.

Should you be successful and reach the interview stage, we ask that you be prepared to evidence your design portfolio and previous work.

Equal Opportunities

At Optivo we work hard to create a diverse and inclusive culture and environment where people are respected for who they are. Encouraging inclusion is not just about protected characteristics, it’s about celebrating differences of thought, opinion, experience and perspective of each individual. We’re all different in our own way and we want our colleagues to feel comfortable, that they belong, and are safe to be themselves at work, without fear of being judged or excluded, but valued for their contribution to our One Team approach.
