The opportunity to take a stake in a fast growing, innovative business

Insight data visualisation designer

Do you love pie? Who doesn’t? But do you love pie charts? Yes? Then read on…

We are on the hunt for an exceptional designer – a detail-driven, talented information designer / data visualiser – who can bring data to life and delight with their report design.

Sound like you? Then come and join the best employee experience team in the business.

Due to continued growth, Karian and Box are looking for an information / data visualiser to join our expanding York-based creative team.

Come and be part of our fast-paced, growing employee engagement agency. If you’re a dynamic, enthusiastic and talented designer eager to learn, we’d love to hear from you.

Who are we?

Karian and Box is an employee engagement agency with a unique approach. We help our clients understand what motivates their employees and come up with innovative ways to make their businesses even better places to work.

We offer a full-spectrum approach to employee engagement, from collecting employee insights through annual surveys to creating great engagement strategies and programmes that create real change.

It’s an exciting time to join our business. As the leader in our field, we work with an expanding range of large, national and international brands including Burberry, Tesco, Nationwide, HSBC, Aviva and The Co-operative.

We’re a people-focused business and your attitude matters more than anything else. We’re proud of our business and culture – and we’re proud that we’ve built our business based on strong client relationships, great talent and a shared instinct that if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well.

We practise what we preach; as an employee-owned business, we value the hard work of our people, which means you’d have the opportunity to share the rewards of our success.

The role

As an Insight Designer, you will be working as part of a supportive and successful design team who have a passion for design and communication.

You will use your data visualisation skills and exceptional design sensibilities to develop and deliver outstanding employee insight reports, innovative communications and cutting-edge data visualisation designs – that really delight and make an impact.

About you

We’re looking for someone who can enhance our creative offering with heaps of design talent, great communication skills, a positive attitude and a desire to learn and develop.

You’ll be a thinking designer at heart, someone who is willing to ask questions, get under the skin of a data story, and can transform these ideas from raw concepts into the final product.

You’ll have a strong passion for beautifully crafted design, a love of typography and an acute eye for detail – nothing gets under your skin more than a rogue widow and a misaligned grid!

You will be driven, personable, motivated, enthusiastic and a genuine team player; confidence and passion are encouraged, but design egos must be left at the door.

A minimum of 3 years of agency experience is preferable. And you’ll be expected to have the usual exceptional working knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. Digital experience is a bonus, but not essential.

In return for your valued contribution, we’ll offer you the following benefits:

  • A competitive salary
  • Bonus scheme
  • 25 days holiday per year
  • Private health insurance (after a qualifying period)
  • Volunteering leave (after a qualifying period)
  • Company pension
  • Flexible benefits package including additional holiday purchase, cycle to work scheme, access to a wide range of high street discounts, car lease and financial loans and savings at preferential rates
  • After a qualifying period, you will be eligible to participate in our Share Investment Plan.

Sound like you?

We’d love to see both your CV and portfolio. Send us examples that showcase the best of your work – especially how you have brought challenging data stories to life through innovative, beautifully crafted design.

  • Location: York, North Yorkshire
  • Salary: competitive, DOE
