The Different Folk, launched in September 2020, represents some of the best contemporary creatives from around the globe. We’re excited to grow the agency and are looking to bring on a new part-time member of staff 1-2 Days a week with the view to build this role up over time.

As a Junior Illustration Agent, you will be responsible for assisting with the general running of the agency. You will primarily be tasked with helping run social media, set up marketing campaigns and to manage the website CMS, so must be confident with digital media. Whilst this is an exciting role in the creative industries, this is a primarily administrative position and the successful applicant will be working closely with artists, rather than creating artwork themselves.

Main Responsibilities:

  • Help manage social media platforms (Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc.)
  • Gather and distribute new work from artists.
  • Website and archive management, uploading and curating artist’s work.
  • Work with copywriters to write, build and curate monthly newsletters.
  • Learn to curate PDFs to fit briefs.
  • Help to manage contact databases to make sure client details are up-to-date.
  • Promoting artists’ work through emails to potential clients.

Main Skills:

  • Passion for contemporary illustration and animation.
  • A dab-hand at social media with good copywriting skills and an understanding of each major platform.
  • Ability to multi-task within a dynamic and fast-moving environment.
  • A natural ‘can do’ attitude and a supportive team player.
  • Great organisational and interpersonal skills.
  • Willingness to learn.
  • Literate and numerate with strong administration skills.
  • Experience in Adobe Creative Suite, G Suite and Microsoft Office would be desired, but is not necessary.
