Digital and presentation designer

Job description

About us

 AMICULUM was designed to be different. In 2001, we decided to build a global healthcare communications, consulting and learning business from scratch. We have made substantial progress towards achieving that goal and now have teams based across multiple locations in New Zealand, China, Singapore, UAE, Switzerland, UK and USA. We offer highly specialist services to global pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients, including medical communications, healthcare learning, clinical and commercial consultancy, market access, rare diseases, genomic medicine, digital engagement and advocacy.

As our business has grown, we have developed our in-house design capabilities and now have an independent, multi-disciplinary team that supports our global agencies. We have designers based in the UK and Singapore and we’re excited to be creating a new opportunity for a designer to join our US team in Chicago.


The opportunity

 Our team at AMICULUM Design are experts in communicating complex science through the application of a broad range of creative approaches. Our designers work alongside our medical writing and account management teams to create content for a variety of purposes – from slides for creative and scientific presentations, to figures redraws and tables for congress posters, to digital platforms and technical illustrations for educational materials.

The continued success of our business in the USA means we are now hiring a digital and presentation designer to provide local support to our teams and clients. Key responsibilities will include:

  • Working on a wide range of multi-media projects, including presentation design, UX design, and rich-media applications
  • Producing infographics and data visualizations for both digital and print
  • Liaising with internal clients to advise on the creative direction of digital and presentation design projects
  • Using innovation to redefine a design brief within the constraints of cost and time
  • Presenting finalized ideas and concepts to clients and colleagues
  • Working on any ad hoc print and layout requests


About you

 You will be a talented designer that is passionate about digital and presentation design. Healthcare communications agency experience is not essential, but you will have some experience of working for design agencies in a similar role and you may have a degree in a relevant subject. In your career so far, you will have gained experience in composition and typography as well as illustrative and interactive design. You will be accomplished in producing presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint, using Adobe Creative Suite to create new design assets for a range of projects, and you will reflect the core values we look for in all colleagues:

  • Intellectual curiosity: you will be passionate about new trends in design and will have an interest in science and biology
  • Teamwork and collaboration: you will be an enthusiastic team member, collaborating with colleagues both locally and internationally to deliver industry-leading service
  • An exceptional eye for detail: you will understand the importance of technical accuracy and quality
  • Accountability and responsibility: you will take responsibility for your workload and deadlines

Why work at AMICULUM?

 We are proud to be a flexible and inclusive employer that provides a supportive working environment. We are committed to developing the careers of our team members and encourage colleagues to create their own career path: we are a job-title-free business that offers progression based on knowledge, skills and ambition. We value creativity and encourage colleagues to offer ideas that further the success of our business; in return, we offer competitive salaries and a great benefits package, which includes two industry-leading annual bonus schemes, health insurance, life insurance, and 25 days’ vacation allowance, plus 9 public holidays


How to apply

 We ask that all applicants supply a resume, covering letter and portfolio in support of their application, detailing their experience and interest in working at AMICULUM.
