A graphics design qualification at degree level is beneficial and a portfolio of graphics work is required. An interest in graphic design and motion graphics for television and an ability to work to deadlines as part of a team are essential. We are looking for people who can marry good design with moving image computer software skills.
While many applicants will have a degree from a British or overseas university, we will consider applicants who do not have a degree if they have an impressive portfolio, a creative track record or an alternative qualification.
