Motion Designer

Dept, Manchester

The heart and mind of your digital business.

Midweight-Senior UI/Motion Designer

DEPT® is one of the world’s fastest growing agencies, with over 2,500 Depsters across the world. We are a pure-play digital agency, Lovies’ agency of the year, and last year our work was recognised with 16 Webby awards nominations and 11 wins. 

We are looking for an empathetic designer with a strong portfolio of work in both user interface (UI) and motion design to join our Manchester team. In this role, you will collaborate with skilled Copywriters, UI, UX and Motion Designers to bring our global B2C and B2B clients’ concepts to life through impactful, brand-aligned creative.

As a member of a multi-disciplinary design team, you will use your knowledge and skills in UI and motion design to bring creative designs to life. You will work on animations while having the creative freedom to pitch, conceptualise, storyboard and produce videos that depict our client's vision, products or services.

DEPT® uses Figma for all UI work, Adobe After Effects for animations and Adobe Premiere Pro to bring everything together; so you’ll be confident using each software. That said, we’re quick to adopt new tools and processes, so you’ll be more than welcome to contribute best practices you’ve used or implemented before.

You will work in a vibrant environment with clever minds that work for a variety of large global clients. At DEPT®, we’re eager to hire the most talented experts in the game; people who continuously strive to improve their craft, are eager to learn, who want to inspire others, and strive for a better world.


  • You have 4-5 years’ design experience, preferably in an agency setting
  • You value collaboration and perform best when working as part of a team
  • You understand that good design is based on principles and tradeoffs, rather than trends
  • You can show us a portfolio with detailed examples of effective visual and motion design
  • You have experience of working in a fast-paced environment, both independently and as part of a team that pushes boundaries
  • You are comfortable and confident collaborating with people at all levels and across departments to gather brief requirements and ensure that creative output meets client needs
  • You are highly proficient in Figma and the Adobe Creative Suite, but knowledge of 3D software is a plus



  • Possibilities to do what you do best and to develop your skills further with training, development and certifications
  • An excellent salary based on experience and equal pay policies
  • Flexible working: you have the choice to work from our office or remotely, and we have core working hours where you can choose your start and finish times to suit you
  • Pension, free private healthcare, mental health support, and company sick pay scheme
  • 25 days paid holiday with the opportunity to buy extra days
  • Annual social budget which is used for team events (think virtual escape rooms or a gaming competitions), as well as away-days, and meals out
  • Free refreshments provided in the office all week, as well as drinks at 4pm on a Friday.
  • We celebrate successes by rewarding teams when big projects go-live and honouring the year’s top achievements at our annual awards ceremony
  • Opportunity to take part in the annual DEPT® Cares Day where Depsters across the world donate their skills to support local charities
  • Annual trip to the DEPT® Festival in the Netherlands: a chance to meet other people in DEPT®, see great talks from industry leaders, and have an all-expenses-paid weekend of fun!
