Senior Product Design Consultant, Matter, Bath, UK

If you are a Senior Product Designer with an extraordinary eye for detail, creative thinking and brand understanding, then apply. Successful candidates will be energetic individuals with infectious creativity who display real passion and pride in all aspects of their work. We expect you to be incredibly self-motivated and work independently and integrate with our design team and our clients, in all aspects of the design process. You will require a resourceful ‘can do' attitude and a ‘hands on' approach, balanced with advanced 2D and 3D skills and manufacturing awareness, to help effectively communicate your thinking and drive even the most challenging of briefs to market.

5+ years successful consultancy/FMCG experience will be an advantage - creative and strategic thinking essential, good humour, project management and people skills are a must.
