Job Description

Reporting to the Managing Director, you will be responsible for managing the design side of a variety of projects for web, social media and print. You will delight in producing eye-catching designs that deliver tangible results for our clients.

All about you

You feel confident working closely with clients on both web and print projects. You have excellent attention to detail and love tackling new challenges. You are comfortable taking feedback on your designs and work hard to find exactly the right solution for each client.  

You are equally capable designing for both web and print, and have a genuine passion for creating beautiful, engaging design that comes to life in both formats.

You understand the importance of managing your own time and working closely with the rest of the team to deliver projects on schedule.

You are excited to develop your career in Cornwall, as part of a friendly, dynamic and expanding agency.

Your working day could include…

  • Developing branding and corporate identity concepts
  • Designing website mock-ups and prototypes, alongside our in-house developers
  • Creating marketing materials, including programmes, brochures and stationery
  • Producing infographics and adverts for use across social media
  • Meeting with clients to discuss their design requirements, and taking action based on their feedback on your work

The skills and experience you will definitely need

  • At least two years experience in a similar role
  • Complete working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, particularly Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Strong work ethic, with great organisation
  • Good knowledge of current social media platforms
  • Great attention to detail
  • Genuine interest in the marine industry

We would also love it if you have…

  • Experience in using Sketch
  • Working knowledge of WordPress CMS
  • A keen interest in sailing and other water-based activities

You would really stand out from the crowd if you have…

  • Basic front-end development experience, with a working knowledge of HTML and CSS. 

Company Description

Fastnet Marketing are a small but powerful full-service marketing agency, specialising in the marine sector.

We’re ready to expand our friendly, dedicated team as we’re growing fast, taking on a range of exciting new projects. We work hard to deliver high quality projects and excellent service to our clients.

Our studio offers stunning views down Penryn river, and we always make sure team members have exactly the right kit they need to do their job (plus plenty of coffee and cake on a regular basis!). Everyone has 28 days holiday a year, and is eligible for a performance-based bonus scheme.

We are fortunate to be based at the heart of the sailing community in Cornwall, and most of us spend our free time on, in or under the water. We have a strong focus towards developing our business within the local marine sector and beyond, building on an established base of marine clients in Cornwall.
