Having experience in a similar role whilst being fluent in Adobe Creative suite of applications including In-Design, Photoshop and Illustrator, the ideal candidate will have a good working knowledge of Acrobat and other Apps such as Animate with experience of working with print-ready artwork as well as social media and digital creativity.
Being able to coordinate and deliver multiple projects to agreed timeframes with excellent verbal and written communication skills (particularly to interpret briefs); demonstrating high levels of accuracy and attention to detail, with the ability to multi-task and problem solve whilst prioritising a busy workload, is essential. An understanding of the needs and demands of the business, PGA Members and the golf industry is preferable.
As well as having passion and enthusiasm for design with a strong, creative flair and a flexible approach, the successful applicant will be a natural communicator that builds strong external and internal relationships.
In addition to a competitive salary, the Association is offering membership of The PGA pension scheme and (after a qualifying period) membership of the private healthcare, company sick pay, group income protection and group life assurance schemes.
This is a permanent, full-time role working around the core hours of the business (9am until 5pm Monday to Friday). Occasional weekend and/or bank holiday working are essential to fulfil this role.
Whilst a temporary home-working structure is currently in place to reflect current Government guidance, this role will be primarily based from PGA National Headquarters, The Belfry, Sutton Coldfield. However, we are looking to embrace more flexible longer-term ways of working.
We welcome applications for this role via the request of a job description initially from Dawn Sales, Human Resources & Health & Safety Advisor, then sending your curriculum vitae together with a covering letter which clearly articulates how you meet the requirements of the role to email@example.com.
