Packaging Designer

About Us

Together is part of the global MMR Group and has an enviable portfolio of B2C clients including Muller, National Trust, Fox’s Biscuits, Coke Cola and Mondelez to name a few.

We’re based in Nottingham and London and have ambitious growth plans domestically and overseas. Although we’re part of a larger group, we have the drive and agility of a smaller entrepreneurial business and believe everything is possible; it is only your imagination that limits growth.

This is a brilliant opportunity for the right individual to join what is a forward-thinking, nurturing insight-led creative agency delivering amazing service and success to clients.

Together is an Equal Opportunity employer.

About the Role

We're on the hunt for a brilliant Senior Designer to join the team in Nottingham. Brand and packaging design experience across a mix of FMCG, drinks and/or beauty brands gained in previous roles, is a must-have for anyone applying for this role. However, we're also interested in seeing integrated design experience as part of your portfolio, too. Ultimately, we’re looking for a conceptual thinker with a genuine passion for creating considered, beautifully crafted design, and there will be plenty of opportunities to hone your craft working collaboratively with some of the best people (and clients) in the industry. So if you think you have the right level of experience and you're ready for a new challenge, impress us with your portfolio and we'll take it from there.

You’ll be joining an agency that places great emphasis on collaboration and teamwork. Diversity and inclusivity are equally important to us and you’ll also have the chance to be involved in our initiatives to support our local community.

Our approach to remote working will continue to be flexible, but we’ll prioritise candidates excited by the prospect of working from our Nottingham studio. This position will be based in our Nottingham office for three days a week, with the flexibility to work remotely for the remaining two days.
