We're looking for a talented and creative Motion Graphics Designer, with character design skills and the ability to lead in the development of animation projects, from storyboarding and asset design to the final animation.

You'll be working in our colourful main office at the University of Nottingham's Innovation Park. You'll join our Skeleton family, which is small enough that we all know each other's fav songs but big enough to allow you to cultivate your own unique skillset.

On a day-to-day basis you'll be working as part of the post-production team alongside a broader team as we work with key clients, from universities to FTSE 100 companies to startups, help turn their ideas into beautifully appealing animation.

In short: we're looking for a talented, imaginative and passionate Motion Graphics Designer that is willing to work hard, learn fast and grow with our business. You must enjoy working autonomously and as part of a team to solve exciting & challenging client problems, creating animations we're all proud of. If your heart's pounding just thinking about the opportunity, we'd love to hear from you!
