The Big Issue is growing and we are looking for a creative, bold and visionary art director to lead a new team and help plot the future of one of Britain’s most iconic and best loved brands.

You are likely to have at least five years' experience in a senior role, ideally in a weekly consumer publishing environment. You will have an unquenchable enthusiasm for magazine design and a technique that lifts your ideas off the page. You will understand how to make typography sing and make the reader want to dive in.

You will have extensive contacts across the trade – with photographers, illustrators, agencies and design peers. The Big Issue's covers are a particular calling card and you will excel at making the most of them every week.

You will also have some experience with digital platforms and the potential for design there.

You will have experience across the Adobe creative suite, including InDesign and Photoshop.

The Big Issue is an award-winning title whose circulation is on the rise, and we are looking for the person who can develop our brand even further.

A commitment to the social objectives of The Big Issue is essential.
