We’re hiring.

Digital art director
(Manchester)

We’re looking for a digital art director who loves creating beautiful designs that help solve problems. You understand design principles but aren’t constrained by them—and create value with your creativity. You’ve been a digital art director for a while—you enjoy this level of experience but you’re looking for a change.

We are building a small team in Manchester made up of specialised skills and disciplines. We’re looking for people that understand how agencies work, but you won’t be in a typical agency role— you’ll be part of something much more exciting.

This role is an opportunity to help evolve a single brand and brings ideas to life. Before you ask, no you’re not being seconded anywhere. Our Manchester team’s main client will be August. See what we mean when we say this isn’t a typical agency role?

As a designer, your work is inclusive and user-focussed, presented as pixel-perfect aesthetic. Your designs look their best every single day, for diverse audiences and channels. You lean on evidence over intuition, and design with data and development in mind. You’re willing to take ownership of a project but have built your career on collaboration—working amongst multidisciplinary teams and clients to deliver digital that’s unique to each interface and industry.

Our global team is smart and nimble; working together to build innovative applications, committed to learning and sharing something new every day. While we love helping people grow their skills, this role isn’t one for mid weights to step into. Seniors in our team understand how different roles fit together in a business because they’ve lived it. They are specialised in their discipline but have continued to develop complementary skills, especially soft skills, that help them demonstrate leadership in different ways. If you’re a senior team member at August, you may or may not be managing a team—but you’ll be setting a strong example for others to learn from and learn with.

The job in 55 words or less

  • Help evolve the August brand globally and bring ideas to life
  • Work with our Australian and Canadian offices to create country-specific content, language considerations, and delight
  • Gradually establish August in Manchester as part of a core foundational team
  • Share your skills and learnings with the August team globally
  • Part time availability to begin with (0.6 FTE)—this is negotiable

Does this sound like you?

  • Experience working as part of a design team (minimum 8-10 years)
  • Advanced understanding of UI and UX principles
  • Flexible and collaborative attitude
  • Curiosity to learn a new way of working
  • Preparedness to roll your sleeves up and get sh*t done; no one at August has job descriptions
  • Holds a legal right to work in the United Kingdom and is available to work on site in Manchester

You get extra credit for

  • Experience with Google Material Design
  • An understanding of HTML5 and CSS
  • Sound knowledge of WCAG standards

What you will get

A unique opportunity to use your extensive career experience to expand a well-established Australian creative brand into the UK and Canada. As a team, we take our work seriously, but we really enjoy the company of the people we work with and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We work hard to break down distance barriers with technology across our global team. You’ll be part of a very supportive and vibrant team—one that wants to see you succeed and will do everything they can to help you reach your goals.

You will also get:

  • A competitive salary package that is part of a fair and rigorous company salary structure
  • A range of opportunities made available to you as an August team member such as volunteer service, generous parental leave programs, salary sacrifice programs, mentoring opportunities, and a training budget

Work experience at August

If you’ve landed on this page, you must be interested in work experience. That’s great. But if you’ve come straight here, perhaps go back and have a look around before reading further. Trust us, it will help. Why? Because before you apply, you need to understand what we’re about.

We are big advocates of learning and pushing yourself to be better. Work experience is valuable in the formative years of your career or as you’re nearing the end of high school. It gives you the opportunity – however brief – to be immersed in a company you admire, learn how the company operates, gain an insight into working life and meet people that could help influence your career.

Work experience placements at August are available in June each year.

We take work experience seriously. You’ll be assigned tasks that have a direct impact on the business. Whether it’s assisting with client projects, internal work or being part of team discussions – you’ll be doing much more than just filing or getting coffee.

With that in mind, opportunities here are rare. We don’t advertise, but we do welcome applications from people who push the boundaries with their application.

We want you to stand out. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done work experience before. Show us why you’re different and why we simply shouldn’t say “no” to you.

Things to consider when approaching us about work experience:

  • If you submit online, follow up with a phone call.
  • If at first you don’t succeed, it’s okay to try again at a later date.
  • Be brave and make contact yourself – don’t ask someone else to call on your behalf.
  • Research interview etiquette and tips – it could just help you stand out.
  • Show us that you’ve learnt about August as a company and what we stand for.
  • Be creative in your approach to us.

Please note: Applications open April-May.
