We’re hiring! We’re looking for a junior motion designer

Heehaw are looking for a talented and creative junior motion designer to work within our busy post-production team at our office in Edinburgh on a full time permanent contract. Our studio works across video, film and animation, for a wide variety of local and global clients, as well as original content. As our expansion continues, we’re looking to invest in our post production department and build on the motion graphics and animation side of our work, and that’s where you’ll come in.

We work on a wide variety of concepts, with a hugely varied workflow. To give you an idea of what you’ll be tasked with, you will be responsible for:

  • Helping to formulate and present creative treatments and concepts
  • Developing style-frames, mock-ups and storyboards
  • Working closely with the post production team on the delivery of animation and motion graphics content for multiple projects at once
  • Accurately quoting hours and working to a specific brief
  • Working collaboratively as part of a wider production team, including producers, directors, camera crew and editors

The ideal candidate is a recent graduate from a background in animation, motion design or similar. You will be hugely proactive and passionate about what you do, keen to develop your skills and suggest new ways of doing things. Some of the skills and experience necessary for the role include:

  • Experience with Adobe CC software, particularly After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop and Premiere
  • Experience of Cinema 4D would be advantageous
  • A natural eye for contemporary design, typography, movement and layout
  • Great organisational skills in regard to file management and methodical workflows
  • Excellent communication with a positive and enthusiastic attitude
  • Ability to work on multiple projects at one time
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Flexibility, versatility and the ability to thrive under pressure
  • Creativity when dealing with problems
  • Open, honest, direct and comfortable in giving and receiving constructive feedback
  • Strong attention to detail

In return, we can offer you a supportive working environment, rewarding projects, and the chance to grow as part of a close-knit team of like-minded creatives. Plus the occasional afternoon off for burgers and cocktails, naturally.

Send your reels to Drew Gibson at drew@heehaw.co.uk. Closing date is 5pm Friday 15th September.
