Confirmed - The role is still hiring despite coronavirus

 

We’re looking for a Designer to join us in our mission to change the way the world deals with death. By tackling the taboo and making the complex simple, warm and approachable, you’ll have the opportunity to guide people through one of life’s toughest moments.

As a Designer at Farewill, you’ll spend your first 12 months:

  • working closely with the rest of the team to evolve the expression of the brand
  • designing all kinds of collateral including presentations, packaging, social content, eCRM, advertising and press
  • collaborating with the brand team on big creative concepts

About you:

You’ll have 3-5 years experience as a designer and you’ll have ideally had the opportunity to design for a range of formats. You’re passionate about design that makes a difference, up on latest trends, and like to experiment. You might have worked in a fast-growing tech-led company but this isn’t mandatory! Equally, you might have an agency background and you might have freelanced for a while. You’re keen to take another step professionally, and want to work in a place where your designs can actually make a difference to people’s lives.

We’re looking for someone who...

  • has a great portfolio of inspiring work
  • is confident managing a busy workload
  • is up for pitching new ideas
  • loves collaborating but is happy to work independently too
  • has an appetite to learn and wants to expand their repertoire
  • really gets brand and can tell us why
  • might have some motion design experience - we’d love to be creating more animations!

If this sounds like what you’d love to be doing, we can’t wait to hear from you. If you’re not sure that you exactly fit the above criteria, get in touch anyway. Personality and attitude is just as important as experience!

We’d love to see your portfolio as part of your application, so please do include an attachment or link.

What we offer in return:

  • Competitive salary and generous stock options
  • 28 days of annual leave plus the usual public holidays
  • £1000 and 3 days a year to spend on your personal development
  • Work from home on Wednesdays, flexible start and end to your day
  • Off-site days and team lunches
  • Santander cycles membership
  • The chance to make a meaningful contribution to people's lives and deaths

About Farewill:
At Farewill, we’re out to change the way the world deals with death. Helping people to take control, personally and financially, of what matters to them after they’re gone.

We launched our first product – our will-writing service – in December 2016, and since then we’ve grown to be the largest will-writer in the UK. We launched our second product, Probate, in early 2019, and recently our third, Cremation.

Our growth to date has been driven by an exceptional product (see our customer reviews) and key strategic partnerships. We’ve been featured in Forbes, The Times, The Guardian and on Radio 4 among others. We're also making waves in the charity world, with over £200 million raised for charities on our platform from gifts left in wills.

We’re a creative, focused team who love what we do. We have backgrounds in design, technology, behavioural psychology, and management consultancy. We love to learn from each other and our customers, and grow together as a team.

Based in our lovely office in Haggerston, we’re backed by some of the best investors in Europe – from the founders of Transferwise and Zoopla, to Kindred Capital, SAATCHiNVEST, JamJar and DMGT.

This is an unusual, fascinating, and emotional area to work in – if you’re up for a big challenge we’d love to meet you. If you’d like to understand our culture and product better, here’s a few articles for you to read: About FarewillLife at FarewillAre you worried about your will?

Please note: In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, all Farewill employees are working remotely and we will be conducting all interviews virtually for the foreseeable future. We will continue hiring as usual.
