  • Experience of working with online management tools, ideally Workfront.
  • A flexible, ‘do-er’ who can provide first class service to a variety of stakeholders.
  • A degree in Design or a related subject would be desirable.
  • Agency experience and understanding desirable.

We help our customers to express themselves with stylish products, helpful services and flexible finance.
