👋 Who we are
Born Social is a global social media agency that brings social-first thinking to the brands of tomorrow. 

For the last 10 years, we’ve helped brands navigate and harness the chaos of social bringing method to the madness.   From household names like Guinness, Dettol, and Uber to the next generation of big brands like Nando's and Fever-Tree.

We're an ambitious team of over 100 people across the UK & US and not stopping there.  We're growing fast and looking for new Junior Motion Designers to join our team.

We believe in adding real business value to our clients. Work that is tied closely to account strategy and often tasked with getting people to take action. We are not a table of passive designers, but rather, a group of social media strategists with an arsenal of creative skills. A diverse, multi-skilled bunch, made up of copywriters, photographers, animators and designers who work incredibly hard and always think social-first. If you’re the kind of person who genuinely gets a buzz from being smart in the social space, then you're going to fit right in.

✏️ What you'll be doing:

  • Content Creation: creating social-first content consistently for our clients that feels true to brand and fits within relevant brand guidelines including storyboarding, designing in Adobe After Effects, animating typography, editing in Premiere Pro and working in Photoshop - you'll cover it all!
  • Operations: maintaining good file hygiene and supporting best–practices laid out by senior team members and helping to solve operational challenges as and when they arise
  • Collaboration: working with our wider delivery teams, collaborating closely with the Creatives, Social Media Managers, Account Directors, and Media Planners on creative ideation and execution in pursuit of truly effective content, advertising, and strategy.
  • Time-Management: managing your allocated time within a scope of work with support from your Seniors.  Giving feedback and asking for help when necessary from the Client Services teams you're working with.

👀 Who we're looking for:

  • You're a Motion Designer with 1 or more years of experience (agency or in-house). 
  • You live and breathe social, know how to create social-first assets, and want to work on a variety of different brands across all sectors.
  • You're learning how to take strategy and execute it in social-first, show-stopping ways, with a keen eye for detail and intrigue
  • You're motion obsessed and have a foundational understanding of the principles and how to apply them to the latest trends and innovations
  • Adobe Suite is where you feel most at home (particularly After Effects, Premiere Pro, Photoshop, and Illustrator). Experience in Red Giant and Cinema 4D or equivalent are added bonuses!
  • You love brands and social media: you're fascinated by brands, and how they market themselves and use social media to do this. 
  • You're comfortable managing multiple tasks within a fast-paced environment where deadlines can land simultaneously

✌️ Our values:

Our values aim to pinpoint the magic ingredients for us at our best. We look for people who share our values and can add to our culture. 

See Challenge as Opportunity... is about our attitude and to be very clear, this is not a value of optimism, nor is it about loving every challenge.

Say It Simply... is how we communicate. Think of the basic rules of communication - honest, clear, confident.

Do What You Say... is the crux of our reputation and longevity. When you join Born Social, our trust is fully given. It is yours to lose. 

Make Each Other Better... is about our culture of collaboration and commitment to development. We are only as good as the people around us so we all take responsibility for developing each other, as well as ourselves.

Consciously bigger than all the others.  It ensures we grow right. It broadens our focus beyond Born Social and cements our commitment to doing what’s just, not what’s easy or immediately self-serving.  

💙 Everyone's welcome:

We celebrate different ideas, perspectives, and backgrounds here at Born Social. As an equal opportunities employer, we believe in the power of an inclusive and representative team. We welcome applications regardless of race, religion or belief, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, political affiliation, family, or parental status. We don’t simply comply with the Equality Act, we go further and take pride in building a stronger and more creative work environment, committed to inclusion, diversity, and representation.
