You. On a road trip.

With Alexa Chung
& Aristotle.

So you want to work at Pink Squid?

Wise choice friend. The truth is we’re growing really fast. So we need people who can get stuck in from the off, doing whatever it takes to produce seriously great work for all our clients.

 

It’s hard work, but if it was easy, it wouldn’t be fun right? You’ll get to learn new tricks and skills very, very quickly. And it won’t just be how to ‘snake-spin’ on the fusball table. Sound good? Then where do you want to join us?

Current Roles

 

The Suits

Studio manager

We’re on the lookout for a studio manager who knows their stuff and has previous experience in a fast-paced agency setup.

Assigning resources to briefs, trafficking and tracking project statuses and overseeing smooth day-to-day running of the agency. Acting as a gatekeeper for our multi-discipline teams from PMs to Creatives and various specialists partners will be an easy rodeo. You’ll be a great at communicator, joining the dots with super-hero use of collaboration tools, taking projects from end-to-end in your stride.

Project Manager / Account Manager

Done your time? With enough years of recruitment advertising experience and a background of dealing with big complex clients – you can do this with your eyes closed.  You’re adept at leading multi-channel projects and have plenty of confidence when it comes to nurturing clients through your delivery methods. You will be working with an expert mix of PMs, Creatives, Strategists and Data Analysts. So knowing how we all fit together is crucial. Ambitious, efficient, detailed, commercially minded and a nice way with clients are some of the traits we’re looking for.

Get the ball rolling and reach out to us at beasquid@pinksquid.com with a CV to make our Squid Tank jealous.

Junior Project Manager

We’re looking for a Junior Project Manager with (or without) recruitment advertising industry experience – BUT with OCD ability to hustle, learn, log and analyse. Actions and deadlines you have for breakfast, people skills are essential and would say your strongest skill – you’ll be working and learning with other PMs, Designers, Art Directors, Copywriters and Coders. You’re ambitious, productive and adaptable above all else because we’re growing, fast, and this is your chance to jump in and grow with us.

Hassle us, get in touch at beasquid@pinksquid.com with your CV. Then if we think you’d be a good fit, we’ll invite you in for chat.

 

Creative Snowflakes

Copywriter

We’re looking for a true Wordsmith; the kind of copywriter that gets a little bit cross when they spot a spelling mistake on a takeaway menu and a little bit jealous when they see a well written HR policy manual. Anyone can write, right?  We’ll be looking for a portfolio full of words, linked to beautifully executed ideas; with the same level of lexical dexterity and craft and care shown on a banner as a 96 sheet billboard. Sound exciting?

Send your 500 words to beasquid@pinksquid.com with your CV and the portfolio of 2 pieces you’re most likely to hang over the mantelpiece.

Designer

We’re looking for a Designer to join our Creative department. You’re an expert in Adobe Suite and know your RGB from your CMYK – expert in precision digital and print. Ideally, you’ll have a strong portfolio, and a minimum of two years’ experience in an agency environment. Backed up by a strong Arts degree, who understands the practicalities of design in the advertising industry.

Sound familiar? Send your most impressive designs, along with your CV, to beasquid@pinksquid.com.

Art Director

We’re on the hunt to find a talented (and funny and witty) Art Director to join us. We’d like you to have a minimum of two years’ experience in an agency and a strong portfolio, which shows not just your conceptual genius, but the hidden (or extremely visible) problem solver within you too. You’re comfortable working with big ideas, to make the abstract real. The cherry on the top? You also find presenting in-front of clients a piece of cake.

Fancy your chances? Get in touch with your CV and best ideas at beasquid@pinksquid.com.

 

Tech Heads

UI/UX Designer

You’re a creative, but you play in the digital playground. Before you even think about wireframing, you’ll be looking at user personnas and sussing out the most efficient journeys to get the user from A to B to Z. You’ll design to a pixel level, then zoom in a little bit more – you know what’s accessible, what’s functional and what’s just plain delicious. You’re able to use all the standard tools, then switch your designs to InVision for testing, ready go into development. Ideally, you’ll have had experience in a creative environment, where occasionally you’ll need to duck from Nerf guns.

If you reckon you’re a good – send you links and portfolio to beasquid@pinksquid.com.

Motion Editor Intern

We’re on the hunt for a fresh-faced, Motion Graphics Designer or Video Editor (intern) with a stunning portfolio to support our growing creative team on shoots and in the studio.

You will be working on a great variety of digital projects, from snappy video to eye-catching display banners, so a relevant degree plus experience across After Effects, Premiere Pro, Illustrator and Photoshop are a must.

That’s enough to get your foot in the door, however an ability to learn (fast), an eye for detail and passion for your craft, will secure you both feet. Quickly followed by a Nerf gun in your hand and the chance to work across clients such as Nando’s, Mercedes-Benz, wagamama, Legal & General, Boots and many more.

Have we caught your eye? Reach out to beasquid@pinksquid.com with your CV and showreel highlights.

Junior Digital Designer

Are you an all-round Junior Digital Designer with pockets of experience in web and UX/UI design, banner production and creating beautiful infographics? Maybe you’re looking for somewhere to hone your skills alongside a talented team in a fast-paced but fun environment? Wow. Because we’re looking for someone just like you, with killer skills in Adobe software, creating user personas and website wireframing to join us in the Squid Tank.

If we’ve described you down to a tee, then round up your best designs and send them to beasquid@pinksquid.com, along with your CV.
