HAVAS LYNX is a global communications group with over 250 employees – supported by the wider HAVAS network, we have offices in Manchester, London and New York. We innovate on behalf of our clients across the healthcare and wellness sectors and we are proud winners of prestigious awards for effectiveness and innovation; we are pleased to now be looking for a dedicated PowerPoint Specialist to join our team in Manchester.
This is a new role within the Agency – the successful candidate will take on a broad range of projects, acting as the internal expert for all things PowerPoint. This role will see you work with a range of teams; undertaking work for our clients as well as working on our own internal communications. We’re therefore keen to hear from people who are self-starters and diligent in their approach, who are organised and happy to work independently to see a project through from start to finish. You should be methodical, yet have a creative eye and take pride in your outputs. We’d like to hear from applicants who can demonstrate experience in:
• Working with internal teams to service client needs across all areas of their business – via the generation, stylisation and development of associated PowerPoint slides
o Specifically, you should be confident in animating slides, offering eye-catching yet appropriate icons and typography. You should also be confident in inserting videos, graphs and images
• Confidently liaising with internal teams to understand a brief; proactively offering suggestions and guidance as how to achieve the best possible output
• Translating creative concepts into slide decks – it’s important you can tailor your technical approach and demonstrate a natural creative flair
• Keeping calm and delivering to deadlines, whilst displaying a consistently high level of attention to detail and awareness of brand guidelines and / or house style
Whilst PowerPoint will maintain the focus of your efforts, it’s also important that you are skilled in the Adobe Creative Suite as you will likely also encounter tasks involving Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. Moreover, due to the nature of our work, experience in creating slides for the pharmaceutical sector would be advantageous, but not essential.
In return, we offer an excellent working environment – we offer a fun, yet supportive atmosphere where there is a high level of focus on your career development. We are proud to offer a comprehensive internal training scheme; LX Academy, you can view more information via the blog area of our website. You will also find we’re very proud of our heritage and culture, so you’ll find HAVAS LYNX is a sociable, friendly environment.
