If you’re looking for web design jobs in Liverpool, look no further! We may have just the job for you.

At Signature Living, we’re in search of a creative, friendly designer who’s always up for a challenge.

As our new Web Designer, you’ll work on an array of exciting projects and be the brains behind the branding of some of the UK’s most exquisite venues.

From heritage buildings and wedding venues to unbeatable party apartments, you’ll find that every day brings something new.

10 Questions with Media Manager Paul

1) What sort of experience are you looking for?

Previous experience working in a web agency or internal web role, working on multiple projects simultaneously is essential.

2) 3 words to describe the perfect web designer?

Open to ideas.

3) What sort of person would be a good fit for the team?

Someone with a good sense of humour!

4) List some common mistakes you see in interviews…

Not bringing a portfolio and examples of work (for a design job!).
Being unprepared – be ready for questions relating to you skills, creative process, inspirations and work.
Not researching the company.

5) How would you describe working at Signature Living?

Busy, fun and challenging!

6) What is the best thing a web designer can do to improve?

I think the best way designers improve is by working alongside other talented designers and creatives. It gives you the opportunity to see a fresh approach to a problem and opens you up to different styles and techniques.

Also, get your work critiqued regularly and listen to the feedback. Rather than see it as an attack, take on board the comments use it to improve your work.

7) How should a web designer present their work in an interview?

Bring an iPad or laptop (make sure it’s charged!) and be sure your work is presentable offline – don’t assume you will be able to join the companies network to show off your web skills!

Have a portfolio that talks about how you came to the final design, and be prepared to explain why you made the decisions you did. Where possible make your portfolio relevant to the position you’re applying for.

8) Would you say the office environment is more formal or informal?

Our team works similarly to a design agency so we prefer an informal approach, no shirt and tie necessary!

9) What sort of projects will the designer be working on day-to-day?

Holding pages and full website designs for our hotels, landing pages for offers and events, social media campaigns and email newsletter/templates.

10) What is the best thing about being at web designer for Signature?

Signature Living has two distinct brands – Party and Heritage, because of this you have the option to work on distinctly different styles and the freedom to try whatever you feel fits the brief.

We do everything in-house ranging from photography, to video and CGI work ensuring you always have great visuals to work with, and if we don’t have it then it can be requested and the team will create it for you!

So, are you up to the challenge? If this sounds like your the design job for you, we’d love to hear from you today. You can submit your CV here.

interview mistakes

Land Your Dream Job: 5 Common Interview Mistakes to Avoid

So, you’ve found your dream job and you’ve got yourself an interview. That’s the first bit all boxed off. But if the interview itself seems a little daunting, we’ve got you covered.

At Signature Careers, we want to help you land the perfect role, so if you’re feeling a little rusty when it comes to acing your interview, look no further for steps to success…

1) Forgetting to Do Research

Research is key when it comes to a successful interview. When you’re busy rehearsing talking about yourself, it’s easy to forget that it works two ways. You need to know your stuff when it comes to them. This simple factor could set you apart from other candidates with similar experience.

So, take some time to research the history of the company and keep an eye out for any brand values or mantras. How can you align with them? Knowing what the company stands for and what their foundations are can help you to tailor how you present yourself. This all gives you a fantastic opportunity to relate your personal qualities and professional experience to their values.

2) Feeling too Underdressed

These days, it’s not too tricky to figure out what to wear for interviews. But make sure you take a moment or two to double check. It’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed. But what you’re wearing can help you with your confidence, so make sure it’s comfortable.

Taking a scroll through the company’s social media pages may help you to gage what sort of clothes current employees wear and what the culture is like. If it seems formal, keep it smart. But if it seems a little more relaxed, you may want to add some personal touches to your outfit to express who you are.

3) Not Asking Any Questions  

Though the purpose of an interview is largely for the company to see if you’re a good fit, it’s also a chance for you to see if the job really sounds right for you. And if you don’t have any questions to ask, you won’t find out everything you might have wanted to know before you started the job.

Not forgetting, if you don’t ask questions, you may risk seeming unenthusiastic.  If another candidate has prepared some thoughtful questions and shows more interest in the role, it could be that they’re more memorable afterwards.

4) Forgetting About Body Language

Body language says a lot. Though its a subconscious communication, it can be just as important as talking. In fact, your body language could be a deal breaker from the moment you arrive.

It’s important to remain conscious of how you’re presenting yourself, without giving it so much thought that it seems forced. The key is to relax, act naturally and think about the qualities you admire most when you’re speaking to others.

Using with your hands while you talk can be persuasive and engaging; it may also make you feel more in control and reaffirm that you know what you’re talking about.

In the meantime, eye contact is also a winning factor. If you can maintain a strong level of eye contact throughout, your interviewer will see that your answers are genuine and that you have confidence in yourself. Again, this should all feel natural. It’s not a staring contest!

5) Over-preparing Your Answers

Just as your body language should feel natural, so should your answers to questions. It’s great to feel prepared but it’s better to think of your interview as more similar to a Powerpoint presentation than a speech. For example, while presenting you may have clear bullet points to support you, but you don’t need to solely rely on them to carry on going.

It may sound a little too robotic if you’re relaying answers from memory. Plus, if you’re asked something that you haven’t prepared an answer to, it’s likely that you may feel thrown off and find yourself unable to think on the spot.

So, we hope you’ve found our guide to Interview Mistakes to Avoid useful and wish you the best of luck. We think you’ve got this!
