Apply for this amazing job, you’ll love being here.
We’re an inbound marketing, creative design, web development and 100% HubSpot marketing agency. In fact, out of over 3,000 HubSpot partner agencies, we were named HubSpot Partner of the Year for 2018. We are also the Red Rose Awards Employer of the Year for 2019.
We work in a purpose-built office in the recently converted, Grade II listed Holmes Mill, Clitheroe. We’re a team of nearly 40, filled with young, friendly people who love inbound marketing. To join us, you have to be hungry to learn, enjoy working as a team, enthusiastic about working with our clients and eager to grow with the business.
We’re looking for a Lead Web Designer to join our multi-award winning Design and Development team. Your job is to design eye-wateringly, jaw-droppingly, let-me-share-this-on-Instagram-ly good website designs, ready to be built using the Growth Driven Design methodology (If you don’t know what that is, don’t worry. It isn’t essential - we offer plenty of training to get you up to speed).
You’ll be the Lead Web Designer in our well-established design department. A design department that’s part of an inbound marketing agency. So everything is results focused. Your role will be to help your Design and Development Manager and the client’s Inbound Strategist to have the most impressive and effective designs possible.
You’d be designing websites for inbound marketing purposes, which means you’ll be working closely with both our SEO and Content departments, and our Inbound Strategists. Plus, you’ll need to create other marketing assets when required.
Now, if you’re interested in mentoring and developing a fellow designer, you’re in luck.
You’ll be working alongside a brilliant Graphic Designer who is responsible for producing marketing assets for our clients, so the ability to offer helpful advice is vital. In the main, our Graphic Designer produces the assets and our Lead Designer will produce the website stuff - but, hey, we’re an agency, so you need to be flexible at times. Plus, you know, it’s nice to freshen things up and work on something different from time to time.
We plan to further grow the department, in the future, and we’re looking for someone who can help our Design and Development Manager do that.
You should know, we design and build sites on the HubSpot CMS, exclusively. Also, if you’re curious, we’re on Macs and use Adobe Creative Cloud (including XD and the usual suspects).
Someone who’s as passionate about UX and CRO as they are at making things look ace. But making stuff look as ace as possible is also a given. We’ve won HubSpot awards for our website work, but we wanna kick on and make even bigger waves.
We want you to help us do that.
You need to have a sick portfolio of work and a hunger to do even more amazing things. We want somebody who is after a new challenge and wants to explore Growth Driven Design for websites, and is also interested in improving processes and efficiencies.
Ideally, you’ll have a few years at a marketing agency under your belt and plenty of experience designing websites which A) look class and B) convert visitors. Be prepared to talk about these things at your interview.
When it comes to your working style and approach, we’re very much a collaborative team. It’s important you understand that things move quickly at an agency this big, so flexibility is important.
Also, we truly hate micro-managing. You’ll need to manage your own time and understand that deadlines matter. Beyond that? The floor is yours.
Depending on experience
Our week is much lower than the national average so that you have an extra 234 hours per year for yourself.
We’ve found that an early finish offers plenty of opportunities to socialise together and get our weekends started early.
We think it's vital to start the day properly so free fruit and breakfast items are available for everyone to enjoy.
But we also enjoy a drink together after work. That's why we have an industrial size fridge stocked up with lagers, craft ales and spirits. Obviously, we also have soft drinks for non-drinkers and those who are driving.
Each month, our team votes for one of their peers to win a coveted spin of the prize wheel. Prizes range from £500 cash to an extra day’s holiday or chippy lunch for the rest of the team.
At the same time as the Employee of the Month, the team votes for who they think has been the most hungry to learn. This person also gets a spin of the prize wheel.
Somebody’s birthday? Cake. Visited a client abroad? Cake. We haven’t had cake for a bit? Cake.
An agency can't market on cake alone, it needs plenty of coffee too. Our free barista-quality machine does everything from espressos and Americanos to mochas and cappucinos. But if you can taste difference between a cafe au lait and white coffee, you're more of a coffee snob than some of our current lot.
Each week, two teams from the office compete in a friendly five-a-side football game, paid for by Digital 22.
The only way to stay at the forefront of our industry is to be continuously learning, so that’s why training time is scheduled into every team member’s week and every team member has their own personal training plan.
We follow the EOS business plan and have rolled out the weekly Level 10 meeting structure to the individual teams within Digital 22. These are owned and driven by the team, not the management, and is your chance to talk about and improve your experience at work.
Every week, we ask the team what could be done to make their working experience better. This feedback is then discussed and actioned by our leadership team in their meeting each Monday.
Annual feedback is also collected and this helps shape the strategic direction of the company for the coming year.
Everybody in the team has access to a wealth of professional training materials and certifications to complete online.
Every year, we take a group of the team over to the USA for the annual INBOUND conference in Boston.
From project management training to Brighton SEO, budget is put aside to allow our team to attend relevant training courses in the UK.
Because if a marketing agency doesn't have a table tennis table, can it really call itself a marketing agency?
For every year you remain part of our team, you’ll earn an extra day’s annual leave.
Our HR Coordinator and leadership team are there to offer support and guidance whenever needed.
Located inside a restored Victorian cotton mill, our office is packed with flexible working spaces, games consoles, a bar and there’s a gym on-site.
Nearby car park permit is provided to all staff and this gives free parking across the Ribble Valley, all year round.
Digital 22 takes every opportunity to celebrate. If we have a big success with a client, then it’s only right that we mark the occasion together.
We regularly host office games and competitions. Whether it’s a summer of Office Olympics, a pub quiz or the Digital 22 Bake Off, there’s always friendly competition and prizes on offer.
Although we have a young workforce, we know it’s important to plan for all of our futures. That’s why we offer pension contributions 3x the minimum requirement.
We believe that being open about where the company is heading, what the goals are and how we expect to get there is only fair. We hold quarterly team updates on how the business is doing financially and strategically. The leadership team also have an ‘ask me anything’ mentality.
Plus, we think it’s only right that year on year, if you’re doing more senior work and have more responsibilities then your salary is adjusted accordingly.
