The automotive industry is on a fascinating journey. We're shifting to electric vehicles, to digital retail models and, over time, to autonomous vehicles.

All big ticket items but the most interesting challenge we face is in meeting the changing expectations of our customers.

As digital grows and disruptive brands gain traction, our customers demand an ever more personalised, integrated, intuitive and rewarding process from initial interest through to ownership and after-sales care.

At the Ebbett Group, we aim to be at the forefront of delivering this experience across all platforms.

To help us achieve this ambition we need a Creative Services Manager to lead our studio. The role will have line management responsibility for two in-house graphic designers and will cover all aspects of maximising the effectiveness of that team.

This role is a great combination of leadership, management & responsibility but with a whole lot of hands-on design requirement as well.

  • A minimum of 5 years' experience in a relevant graphic design / studio management role
  • Excellent graphic design skills (first class skills in Adobe creative suite / Wordpress)

  • Excellent project management skills
  • A genuine passion for marketing, creativity and communications

  • Some software design skills may also be useful (though not essential)
  • Are you the all-round unicorn we need? If so, you will be a member of a fun and fast growing internal marketing function with a group-wide remit.

    The role will allow you to work across a number of famous brands and the package will be commensurate with experience and ability.
