About the Role
As a Graphic Designer in our Design division you will be involved in a wide range of creative projects for our clients within the healthcare sector.

Where possible, you will be involved in all stages of the project from the initial concept development to full production, allowing for real autonomy and creativity. This will involve collaborating with designers, project managers and clients at the outset of projects to determine the scope and purpose.
