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. This may include brand development and the design and layout of infographics and event materials. Depending on your skillset, you may also be involved in digital projects such as the design of interactive material for exhibitions, video editing, and the creation of eLearning modules and animations.
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. You will then produce materials to high standards of clarity, presentation and innovation, providing technical insight and guidance where required. Finally, you will ensure that materials are delivered in a timely manner, and on budget, with a key focus on the high quality and professional appearance of all deliverables.
At Costello Medical, our in-house Design division are passionate about data visualisation and optimising the way scientific content is communicated. We are also committed to supporting projects where we believe our skills can make a meaningful difference to healthcare. Therefore, you will have the opportunity to support not only commercial projects but also on the delivery of pro bono work for charities and the public sector.
