About Us

The Carole Group has been in operation for over 35 years and continues to supply both the Heritage and Retail sector with Gifts and Souvenirs and the UK Business Gift and Promotional Sector as a Trade Only supplier.

 

Carole Group is looking to recruit a new member to our Creative team. Being candid, we're looking for a plucky upstart who's coming out of college or somebody with a wealth of experience who's looking to get stuck in on some exciting projects in a fast paced environment. 

The role will consist of providing bespoke, creative visuals for our Souvenir customers, these are some of the largest, most successful visitor attractions, charities and galleries in the UK. There will be a certain amount of day-to-day tasks involved that centre around the preparation of artwork for our on-site printer and engrave facilities to utilise. 

There will also be a large proportion of Marketing collateral to be designed, created, and in turn distributed to our customer base.

We see this as an excellent opportunity to either learn the ropes in a fast paced and precise environment or to further your existing skill set whilst flexing your creative muscles.


YOU WILL BE...

Enthusiastic, a positive mindset and eagerness to learn will set you up for the many challenges that face you day to day - whether it be messing around with type so that we can screen print it onto pens / erasers for the local museum or just as likely be modifying / illustrating designs to be featured on 3000 Lunch boxes for a nationally recognised charity.

Artistic, you will be a valued member of small design team, which contributes to the output of the company as a whole. Your passion for creative imagery and an endless supply of ideas will be welcomed by both the sales team and our customers. Illustration skills are a must. 

Organised, a grasp on navigating file structures and understanding the where's and why's of file naming is a must.

Up to date with technology, we've got a studio filled with iMac's and a number of different printers - all of which you will be expected to use and run on a regular basis. We've got our own printing facility which will grant you hands on experience of screen printing, pad printing and embossing.

You will need to be proficient in the following

The Adobe Suite, Microsoft Applications, MacOS and the use of Mac based software. Knowing the business end of a camera and having some idea of MailChimp would be hugely beneficial.
