CURRENT VACANCIES

Designer - Art Department

12 Month Fixed Term, full time

Liverpool

We are delighted to offer a 12-month fixed term contract for a ‘Designer’ at Hollyoaks.

Hollyoaks is an incredibly visual show with multiple layers of character and show driven design. Unlike many other long running dramas, the set turnarounds, location dresses, single camera photography and big events are all part of what makes the show look so unique.

Much like an Art Director, the role of the Designer here at Lime Pictures is to oversee all aspects of the art department under the direction of the Production Designer, in a rolling on/off cycle of content. As the show often requires new sets, big set dresses both on site and location plus the reliance on our innovative VFX team, we are looking for someone with previous experience in Art Direction who can co-ordinate all of these processes with the broader team.

Alongside this, we require a proficient use of CAD, SketchUp and the ability to produce technical drawings.

It would be beneficial to see a portfolio/examples of your work as part of your application. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with previous experience working for an art department in TV/Film, or other creative sector looking for the next step in their career. We are a company that allows you to drive your own ideas and be creatively brilliant.
