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

Junior Creative Designer

Kickstart your creative career and be a part of the best employee experience team in the business.

Due to continued growth, Karian and Box are looking for a Junior Creative Designer to join our expanding, York-based creative team. If you’re dynamic, enthusiastic, talented, hungry to learn and ready to advance your career in a leading, fast-paced, employee engagement agency, we’d love to hear from you.


Who are we?

Karian and Box is an employee experience agency with a unique approach. We help our clients understand what motivates their employees and come up with 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, Direct Line Group, Nationwide, Anglo American, Aviva and The Co-operative – to name just a few.

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.

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.


The role

As a Junior Creative Designer, your day will be filled with pace and variety – no two projects are the same. You’ll be working as part of a supportive and successful creative team who have a passion for design and communication.

You will work alongside them in developing and delivering outstanding employee communications, innovative engagement programmes and cutting-edge data visualisation designs that really make an impact.


About you

Experience isn’t everything; we’re looking for someone who can enhance our creative offering with raw talent, great communication skills, a positive attitude and a desire to learn.

You’ll be a thinking designer at heart and an ideas person who can bring an innovative energy to our collaborative creative process. You’ll also have a strong passion and sensibility for beautifully crafted design, along with a keen eye for detail.

But, above all you will be driven, motivated, enthusiastic and a genuine team player; confidence and passion is encouraged, but design egos must be left at the door.

Great people skills and the usual good working knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator are essential. 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.
