Senior Designer

About Us

Education changes lives forever. It broadens horizons, breaks down barriers, and fires imaginations. Like the University of Oxford of which we are a part, we are committed to uncompromising standards, freedom of expression, and the enrichment of lives through education. This is our motivation, our purpose, and our mission. It is why 100% of the money we make is reinvested into education and research. It is why all 6,000 of us in 52 countries care deeply about reaching more people, in more places, with world-class learning and research materials and services.

The Education Division (EDUK) provides books and resources across Primary, Secondary, Trade and Children's markets, both for the UK and for customers around the world. We are passionately committed to our mission to educate and inspire.

About the Role

This is an exciting new opportunity for a talented, creative and motivated individual to join our Primary Design team as a Senior Designer, working on a wide range of print and digital products for the Primary International Education markets.

Responsibilities will include producing high quality design for print and digital delivery, commissioning illustration and other visual content, managing external design and typesetting suppliers, producing high impact series identity for use in product and marketing, budget and schedule management of a list of titles.

We operate a hybrid working policy that requires a minimum of 2 days per week in the Oxford office. 

About You

You must be a creative thinker with a proven track record of producing first-class designs in Primary Educational Publishing. Strong typographic and layout skills, as demonstrated in a portfolio of work, are essential. You should have full knowledge of the design process and be fully proficient in Adobe CC. Digital experience would be a bonus. Excellent communication, organization, and time-management skills are required. Experience with XML workflow would be an advantage.

 

Benefits

We care about work/life balance here at OUP. With this in mind we offer 25 days’ holiday that rises with service, plus bank holidays and Christmas closure (3-days) and a 35-hour working week. We are open to discussing flexibility in respect to working patterns, dependent on role. We also have a great variety of active employee networks and societies. 

We help make your money go further by contributing to your pension up to 12%, offering loans and savings schemes through our partnership with Salary Finance, in addition to travel to work schemes and access to a wide range of local discounts. 

This role comes with a discretionary annual bonus.

Please see our Rewards and Recognition page for more information.
