Maybe you are coming home from the UK or Aus and are keen on a Kiwi role that will challenge you in a progressive local design agency?

They will be able to establish and maintain open, honest and effective communication channels both with clients and colleagues, building excellent relationships from the outset. By nature, a fresh eye, ability and passion to create outstanding design outputs are key for this role! 

This is the perfect role for a passionate designer keen to excel in their craft and work across a range of top companies.
