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.
