Creative artworker


Description & responsibilities

M3 is a strategic communications agency with offices in Albrighton and central Birmingham. Due to several new account wins and ambitious future growth plans, we have an exciting opportunity for an exceptional Creative Artworker to join our team.

So, what do we mean by a Creative Artworker? Well, you’ll need to have a meticulous eye for detail with a strong eye for design. Be able to take a scamp and turn it into beautifully crafted, production-ready artwork - everything from print, to animated digital banners.

The work is diverse, often working to tight deadlines, so you’ll need to be comfortable doing whatever is necessary to get the work out on time, and to the high quality our clients deserve.

You will have good knowledge of print techniques and digital formats, and your attention to detail will be second to none. You would be joining us at an exciting stage, as we build for the future.

Our ongoing goal is to raise the bar on our output and add real value to our creative offer. We want you to make a true and meaningful impact to the work we do.

You will report directly into our Group Creative Director.
