My client is a hugely successful business based in Leeds that is currently looking for a Design Manager to help cover a period of maternity leave. Specialising in the greetings card sector, they are a global business with a network of outlets across the UK.

You will be part of team responsible for the design and development of packaged cards, gift wrap, gift bags and boxes for all the company's brand and private label programmes. Taking responsibility for the creative output will also see you managing the 15 strong creative team as well as the creative budget and design styles on customer briefs.

Experience of own brand or seasonal markets is key. Experience within the greetings industry and in particular gift wrap would be ideal but other markets include, wallpaper, fabrics, jewellery, toys etc. This is fast paced, high pressured role, which will see working to challenging and often tight deadlines.
