Are you passionate about digital design, creating visually stunning work and realising great user experiences that deliver real benefits for clients via websites and apps?

Working for ne-web, an established web and digital agency with a solid reputation, you’ll advance and learn from experienced and accomplished professionals, all the while having the freedom to learn cutting edge tools that will progress your career. Working on projects that make a real difference, as part of a small team you’ll also be key in making decisions about the process and methodologies used on projects.

The Company

Since 2001, ne-web have become known as pioneering and award-winning web & ecommerce developers, designing and developing bespoke websites and web applications for organisations throughout the region and beyond.

But we never stand still and always keep a close eye on advancements in the fields of web design, UX, ecommerce and digital marketing. We’ve been consistently successful too, generating high value business from clients new and existing, which has enabled us to thrive.

With 3 core members of the team currently we are looking to grow in number to cope with client demand and drive our agency forward.

We like to think we’re honest, reliable, flexible and generally good people to deal with both for clients and the team, and our work culture is one that offers a great work / life balance. We enjoy what we do, we don’t work late and we don’t expect work outside of hours.

The Position

Primarily a creative and visual design role, you’ll have the chance to push the boundaries of the latest design trends often working on complex and challenging projects. You’ll be able to learn from a huge array of challenges, web design, ecommerce, mobile, email marketing, information architecture and UX / UI as well as potentially some HTML/CSS build, to create work that we and our clients are proud of.

It’s a varied and enjoyable role in a relaxed, close-knit team of designers and developers, and clients range from promising tech startups, to large enterprise organisations and public bodies. There’ll be opportunities for some branding design and the occasional print brief, always with the aim of producing successful results for our clients.

Above all else you need to be creative and passionate about all the things that will make you a better designer, from Adobe Creative Cloud, to Typography and Colour Theory. From Prototypes & Wireframing to the latest CSS standards.

What You’ll Need To Win

  • Ability to produce engaging work that communicates key messages and brand values.
  • Knowledge of the latest digital methodologies and design trends.
  • Able to communicate your ideas effectively and confidently in written form and verbally, both internally and with clients.
  • Plenty of experience ideally gained within a web or digital agency environment.
  • Knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3 and the ability to build cross browser is desirable, but not essential.
  • It’s likely the successful applicant will hold a degree in a related discipline, though not essential for the right candidate.
