An agency that needs “very little selling” has an opportunity for a Digital Designer with a “solid base of UX/UI experience and front end development skills”, an “award-winning” digital agency needs a Mid-Weight Digital Designer and there’s also an Interactive Designer job going with an “established Manchester-based e-marketing agency”.

The North’s “largest advertising agency” is looking to hire a Middleweight Creative Team ready to create “award-winning conceptual ideas for online and offline briefs”. You and your partner will have worked together on similar agency work so a history of joint success is essential.

A couple of digital jobs to finish this week. An agency just outside of Manchester needs an “experienced” Front-End Developer who can handle HTML, CSS, JavaScript and XHTML, while one of the North West’s “leading lights” is on the hunt for a Digital Technology Director. You’ll lead on all aspects of digital technology, and you’ll be nothing less than a “superstar”.
