We’re looking for an ambitious designer who is passionate about the environment, to join our purpose-driven team. You’ll work closely with the Creative Director, Designers and the wider team to provide design support for a broad range of Hubbub’s environmental campaigns.

A Designer at Hubbub gets involved in all aspects of a campaign which may include creating graphic materials for a campaign or working with collaborators to design an installation.

On a typical day, you might research an issue to gather insights and generate ideas or design the user journey for someone engaging with our campaigns or events. You might also artwork existing campaign materials or be on the ground testing the work you’ve created to make sure it has maximum impact.

We're looking for someone who has a great sense of humour and wants to create and test disruptive, playful ways to use design to encourage more sustainable ways of living. This role will require working confidently to multitask across campaigns, both independently and also within a team, amongst a fast-paced environment.


  • Research and gathering insights: to inform the development of campaigns, designs and products that can create behaviour change. This could include setting up workshops and focus groups to meet and understand the audiences we want to engage with, online research and visiting the communities we work in.

  • Design thinking: being able to help project teams define the challenges they want to address within campaigns, and offer ideas that are based on research and insight, and follow them through from concept to testing and creation.

  • Art working and graphic design: supporting both the reworking of existing campaign materials as they are scaled and designing of new campaign materials. This will require confidence in using InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop, and an excellent ability to stick to brand guidelines.

  • Innovation: bringing new ideas to the organisation and confidence in challenging existing ideas and approaches.

  • Supporting the team to refine and test communications written for campaigns and design materials. This will include ensuring communications are aligned with Hubbub’s tone: being playful, positive and accessible to a wide range of audiences. This will require excellent written and spoken English.

  • Supporting marketing activities, including concepts and designs for social media materials.


  • Strong proficiency in Adobe Creative Cloud: InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Bridge is essential. Proficiency in After Effects is desired but not essential.

  • A passion for purposeful design, to engage and communicate with people in a way that’s sociable, playful and knowledgeable.

  • A strong creative flair and an ability to generate concepts that align with brand guidelines

  • Excellent written communication skills.

  • Great organisation skills with attention to detail.


    Hubbub’s success and distinctiveness rests on the quality of our people. No matter where they are in their career, our employees are and should continue to be:

  • Intellectually and politically curious and engaged

  • Proud of the work they do

  • Upbeat, motivated by difficult challenges, and tenacious in solving them

  • Creative, innovative and playful

  • Team players, sharing success and solving issues and challenges collaboratively

  • Organised, dedicated and conscientious, with fantastic attention to detail

  • Flexible, willing and able to respond to constant change and challenge

  • Committed to communicating in a way that is compelling, clear, accurate and accessible
