Job Vacancy: Digital Creative (Leeds)

Fancy working for the agency that I’m pretty damn proud to be at?

The digital team at Brass in Leeds have an opportunity for a specialist digital creative to assist the creative director in a wide range of digital campaigns for famous consumer brands.

You’ll be developing ideas, writing and presenting creative proposals for colleagues and clients, working with writers and designers on campaigns and using your own creative skills to prototype innovations and get your ideas across fast.

If you’ve got agency experience with blue chip brands that’s a bonus, but along with your c.v., we’ll be interested in your seeing your ideas, and how you can present yourself and your work. We’re looking for someone who gets excited by technology, social media and the continuing potential of the digital world.

If you have design, illustration or writing skills, that is an advantage – but all of your creative interests or hobbies are relevant. As a creative person you’ll more than likely be used to taking photos, making music or shooting video, but we equally want to see if you make robots or are into dressmaking, landscape gardening or woodwork.

Most of all you’ll be excited to take your ideas and see them develop into reality.

About us:

We’re an independent top 50 digital agency. We work as the lead digital strategic and creative team, at a global level, for some of the biggest brands and companies on the planet. We run a high profile brand social media group with 3/4 million fans. We made a BAFTA nominated game, shot famous footballers, TV chefs and puppet dogs. And you’re as likely to find us making something out of a plastic bottle and decorating biscuits as writing a soundtrack or designing a website.

So, if you’re after a challenge, and think you could bring innovative digital thinking, great art direction and world class creative to our growing team – give us a shout.
