Art Director

We’re growing the work we do in the Health & Wellbeing sector and are looking to add a new Art Director to our team.

Leith currently works on a range of clients in the UK and internationally. We have ambitious plans to grow the business in 2022 and we’re looking for people who can develop award-winning ideas and see them through to execution. Preferably with experience of working in the health and wellbeing sector. Given the nature of the work it will also be a bonus for candidates to have experience of international projects.

But more importantly you must be passionate about using communications to help make a difference to the health and well-being of people, from encouraging people to get checked early for cancer to telling the story of the science behind the world’s most innovative medicines.
