Where does this role fit in?

This position is a chance for you to portray your digital animation skills, working on some huge clients! We're looking for an experienced animator to produce a range of digital content including video, web banner display, and bespoke animations.

We recognise that you'll be bringing your experience with you, you'll be mentoring the other members of the digital animation team, helping to improve their understanding of the digital landscape. This includes ensuring everyone has sufficient context to the work they produce regarding where it is implemented or deployed. You'll be ensuring that the animation team are using the most appropriate software and production processes to produce content quickly and efficiently.

You'll be the owner of the process of ensuring all animation briefs are screened on receipt, catching any missing assets and information early on. You'll then take responsibility for allocating the work amongst the team, or taking the brief on yourself to ensure they are completed to brief and on time.

This role is made for a perfectionist, you obsess over the animation detail to make sure that every brief is completed to the absolute best it can be! You will need to liaise with our technical partners and suppliers in the scoping, development, quoting and deployment of digital content and technically driven solutions within our clients' businesses.

Some digital content e.g. online banner display may require confirmation and integration with third party display ad platforms such as Google Double Click. Other content will need technical specifications to be followed accurately to ensure they are compatible with the myriad of ad platforms ITG work with. You'll have experience of doing this previously.
