Are you a design leader?
Our creative director is going on maternity leave from April-ish to August-ish, and our studio needs someone to take care of business while she is away. Are you that person?
Nicework is a small, agile, well-run design studio where you’ll have support from an experienced project management team and a talented studio. There'll be a proper hand-over period before you start to make sure you’re up to speed.
We work across a broad range of great projects and have a lot of fun doing it. We’ve built the business to feel like a close community where everyone has each other’s back.
It’s not for everyone but you are not just anyone now are you?
