Job title : Animator
Location : Royal Leamington Spa
Job-type : Permanent
Salary : £25,000 - £35,000
Contact : Emma Head
Reference : EH-5791

This growing design agency based in the heart of Leamington Spa in Warwickshire works with some fantastic brands, and due to continued growth, they are now looking for an Animator who can work in 2D and 3D animation (mixed media animator) to join their talented creative team. This agency works on a wide range of digital work from animation, motion graphics, websites, videography, 3D design, banners, and pretty much any digital content you can think of! This role is offering part remote and part office-based from their creative studio in Leamington, so good flexibility is given. This is a permanent role offering a salary of £25000 to £35000pa. There are good train links and the agency is commutable from Warwick, Stratford upon Avon, Coventry, Solihull, Rugby and Birmingham.

The Role

Whilst the bulk of this role is creating animations in both 2D and 3D (and possibly some stop motion animation), you will ideally have a wider digital skillset that you can put to good use, whether that be across designing for websites, sound and video editing; perhaps you are able to dabble with front end development too and like to continue to learn new software and like pushing boundaries.

Our client is open to the level of experience that someone may have, so if you are a talented junior, or are more experienced, it is truly not about how much experience you have, but about the skills that you have under your belt and the creativity you can demonstrate with your portfolio of work.

Skills required for the role:

  • 2D and 3D animation - with the ability to use 3D software such as Blender, Maya and 3D StudioMax.

  • Experience with different types of animation, for example, key-framing, speed graphs, easing, animating on 2's, etc

  • Strong knowledge of After Effects

  • Good working knowledge of Adobe CS Suite

  • Strong video editing skills, with some knowledge of sound editing

  • Source your own assets (music, sfx, stock photos, videos and vectors)

  • Ideally, some knowledge of HMTL and CSS, even if at beginner level

About You

You enjoy collaborating with a team, but also have the confidence to work under your own steam, and at times, are happy to take direction. You pride yourself on being adaptable and enjoy learning new skills and software and are curious about all things digital.

You have strong communication skills, enjoying having direct access and taking briefs from clients. You take pride in your work and are conceptually strong.

If you want to work in an agency where you will have a lot of variety in what you are doing, work with a talented team who work with some fantastic clients, then do get in touch with your CV and portfolio.
