Graphic Designer Role Description

At Alchemist, we deliver blended learning experiences designed to resonate with people, ignite their interest and provide lasting performance development. We transform businesses through people, using our learning elements to engage their head, heart, and hands. Through this holistic approach, we create effective outcomes with enduring results.

We are looking for a Graphic Designer to join our studio team and help us in delivering high-quality design projects. You will liaise with stakeholders from our in-house marketing and client facing teams and across the business to understand and refine briefs received and manage the timings to deliver all activity. Your contribution will add value to the team and our product and service, directly impacting the customer experience.

Existing members of the Alchemist Studio will tell you that one of the best parts of the job is taking ideas and concepts from our clients and colleagues and turning them into a reality. For us, it’s all about understanding what the client wants to achieve and then explore all the possibilities of what can be done to make that happen.

In the team, we are problem solvers and creative thinkers. We’re always looking for new ways to communicate an idea, and we’re never afraid to experiment. Because of this, we’re often able to take an idea that might be somewhat vague or undeveloped and turn it into something that is truly stunning and effective.

So, for this role, we need someone highly creative, with a sharp eye for detail, being led by a Senior Designer to produce high-quality, client-ready work. Your goal will be to create impactful designs that capture and promote the Alchemist vision of learning design.

Our team mixes talent from a variety of backgrounds, including eLearning developers, video producers and graphic designers, which gives us a varied skillset that enables us to provide unique, high-quality bespoke learning solutions.

Ideally you will have 2 to 3 years’ experience working in a design studio environment. Knowledge of the Learning and Development industry is beneficial, but not essential.

The team is based in our Central Scotland Hub. We offer flexible working arrangements and fully remote working will be considered for the right candidate.

Who we are:

Alchemist was born in 2022, following the fusion of two legacy learning and development brands ‘Interact’ and ‘Apex.’ At Alchemist, we deliver blended learner first experiences designed to resonate with people, ignite their interest and provide lasting performance development. We transform businesses through their people, using our learning elements to engage their head, heart and hands. Through this holistic approach, we create effective outcomes with enduring results. Following private equity investment in 2018, we are enjoying an exciting expansion and to support this, we need more people to join the team and support in our mission to create learning solutions that actually work. As a leading learning and development company, we are proud to have designed and delivered hundreds of learning projects all over the world, ranging from VR simulations for one of the world’s leading investment banks to changing the way performance management happens in a global consumer brand. We care profoundly about our behaviours and culture, and think carefully about how everything we do for ourselves and our customers embodies that. We look for curious, creative and collaborative team players who are proactive in their pursuit of our mission and are excited to be part of our journey to build a great learning organisation.
