Concrete Canvas is recruiting a graphic design graduate to fill a design and marketing role within the company’s sales team. The candidate will be responsible for the management and development of the company’s entire marketing portfolio with scope to expand their responsibilities as the company grows.

The role will include:
• Designing and producing general marketing collateral (brochures, flyers, tradeshow banners)

• Email newsletter campaigns
• Social media management (running the company Twitter, Linked-in and You-Tube account)
• Issuing press releases
• Writing editorial for trade journals
• Organising the company tradeshow calendar (booking and management of marketing collateral)

The candidate will play a key role at every stage; liaising with customers, documenting onsite installations, writing copy, preparing images for print and designing and distributing the finished material to our global distribution network across several channels.

They should have a full working knowledge of the full Adobe CS Cloud suite (PC) and be fluent in Photoshop, In-Design, Illustrator and Premiere.
