We are seeking a passionate and proactive graphic designer with strong animation and moving image experience.

We are looking for an individual with a proven track record in graphic design and animation. Experience in videography and editing is also a strong bonus.

The ability to deliver large quantities of work – and often to snug deadlines – is a key feature of this role. As such, the candidate should be able to work efficiently and independently; thinking innovatively, but also taking direction when it’s given.

As this role involves creating content specifically for social media, candidates should be experienced in uploading content to social media platforms.

The role is based in our central London office, reporting to the Creative Director and liaising with other departments.

Global Influence focuses on finding practical solutions for clients. Our work ranges from creating communications solutions for global commercial brands, to countering violent extremism. We are staffed by people who care about actively changing things for the better – not just talking about it.

Desirable skills for this role:

  • Experience in videography or camerawork, plus editing
  • Experience in creation and running of social media accounts, including boosting, and use of platforms such as Hootsuite
  • Languages – additional languages a bonus


You are:

  • Fast – you produce good work to tight deadlines
