The Requirements

This role does not require a high level in any one area but it requires some skills in both 2D and 3D with the applicant being comfortable with software and technical details. It is perfect for a generalist

Role Details

This is initially a freelancing role where the hours and cost will be negotiated based on each project. The expectation is that successful projects together will lead to a permanent position.

The role will be predominantly remote, though we would like you to work with our Brighton-based team at least once a week, so you must live within commuting distance.

We are interested in seeing your portfolio and any relevant work experience.
