Digital Designer - Part Time (Australian based role)

Position Overview

 

Design is everything when it comes to building a successful online business. From building trust with consistent branding to creating eye-catching, stop-the-scroll images for advertising, you know that design matters and you know that good design plays in compelling people into action, communicating value, inspiring emotion, driving sales, and so much more.

If you’re OBSESSED (yep, all caps) with creating images that are not just pretty but also moves people to click and take action online then keep reading!

The quality of the relationships we build with our ideal customers online and the results we get from our marketing efforts are directly linked to the quality of the visual images that you’ll be creating in this role. This position’s primary focus is to create high-converting visual assets ranging from ad images for the Shine and Succeed brand and all of our amazing clients, to EDMs to social media to sales and landing pages and everything in between. 

Your #1 job will be to hit deadlines and produce quality images that don’t just look pretty but that actually compels people to take action. 

Our ideal digital designer is experienced and well-versed in industry best practices and doesn’t need much hand-holding to create stellar ad images and other branded visual content (though you DO love working with a savvy team and feedback is your friend). To say you’re committed to the craft would be an understatement.

You’re creative, empathic, hard-working, well organized, and dedicated to excellence. You live and breathe digital marketing and most likely have a swipe file of awesome ads or sales pages you love. You don’t base your image on what looks good, you base it off a deep understanding of a brand’s ideal audience and customers alongside conversion and persuasion principles. 

Most importantly, you’re a bit of a “design chameleon” — meaning you’ll have no problem familiarizing yourself with the Shine and Succeed brands and products AND you can also apply your understanding of good design and conversion principles to our clients’ ad images. 

The thought of working with a dynamic and super talented team with BIG goals lights you up.  As the primary designer for Team Shine, you’ll be an integral part of a dedicated team that loves to make an impact in the lives of online entrepreneurs everywhere! 

This is a remote, part-time position that reports directly to our Chief Executive Officer, while also working closely with the marketing team, the Ads and Account Managers, and other key members of the team. 

This position involves working Monday – Friday and you’ll be expected to be available during office hours. This position is a work from home position that comes with a degree of flexibility but requires you to be extremely reliable and available for fixed weekly meetings as well as last-minute meetings as required to complete projects on time.

There are seasons (during launches or when we have a large influx of new clients) when you will be expected to work until the job is done. Our entire team pulls together during these times to successfully complete the launches of our online training programs and coaching programs. This can be very rewarding and challenging work. 

Although we permit “side gigs” / work outside this role, it must not compete or overlap with the work we do, or interfere with your role and responsibilities within the team. 

 

Who thrives at Team Shine?

At Shine And Succeed we have a few beliefs we all hold true and it’s these beliefs that form the cornerstone of our business. Our team thrives when we all believe that:

  • We attract world-class clients and students because we offer world-class services and we are the best at teaching Facebook ads for launching online courses

  • We focus on solutions, not on problems
  • We are reliable and deliver what we said we will when we said we will

  • Staying on top of the latest digital marketing trends and what’s working now in the world of social media marketing and Facebook and Instagram advertising. 
  • Participating in weekly meetings with our Marketing Team and the larger team as a whole.
