FFC is seeking a Mid-Weight UI UX Designer to join our growing creative team and work under our Lead Designer and alongside our Junior Designer, Client Services team and Developers. We are a small agency but massively growing and are already extremely excited about 2023’s future for the business. We are looking for somebody who thrives in a smaller company environment.

The ideal candidate will thrive from a fast paced environment who has one to two years experience within an agency environment or similar. You must be enthusiastic and always up for a challenge and be excited to communicate with clients on calls. This role is ideal for someone who’s either a junior designer already and is excelling at their role and wants to progress or someone who’s already a mid-weight designer and wants to eventually seek further promotion within a company in the future.

You will need to have a portfolio that shows off your design skills for both desktop and mobile devices, please where possible showcase live work. While this is a mid-weight level we will still provide training and support throughout to help you advance your knowledge of Shopify and UI/UX where possible, FFC offers a clear progression for those who thrive from challenges and engage within the company.

Due to the volume of applications, we unfortunately can only respond to successful candidates. We will not accept unsolicited CVs or approaches via recruitment agencies.
