UK 🇬🇧
June 25, 2024

MyTutor is the UK’s leading online platform for one-to-one learning, and we’re building a future where access to high-quality learning is stress-free for those who can afford it, and funded for those who can’t.

You can find a good taster of who we are, our culture & our ethos via the video linked here.

Our handpicked community of over 10,000 tutors work online with students from all walks of life and have already delivered over a million lessons. We’re proud of the fact that over 1,300 schools have chosen to work with us, and that we’ve earned a Trustpilot rating of 4.8/5 (You can also check out our tutors’ ratings here.)

Every role at MyTutor is open to applications from all sections of society. We see potential in every individual regardless of: race, ethnic origin or nationality; religion or belief; physical or neuro-ability; socio-economics or age; marital, domestic or civil partnership status; sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other characteristic that makes you… well, you.

We are committed to conscious inclusion to create a sense of belonging, connection and shared purpose within our teams. We know it’s the right thing to do, and we know it will make us all happier, fulfilled, and successful in our work. You can also find a copy of our current Gender Pay Gap report here and we are continuing to build our roadmap of creating a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

What’s it all about?

We’re looking for a Junior Brand Designer to help us share MyTutor with the world, and create a brand that resonates with both our existing customers and new audiences alike. You’ll be spending your time producing important assets, both digital and print, for our Schools, Parents and Tutor audiences, as well as internal MyTutor teams.

Reporting into the Director of Marketing, you’ll be embedded in the marketing team, ensuring you have a deep understanding of commercial objectives, while collaborating closely with product and other designers in the company to ensure a consistent brand, look and feel.

Safeguarding is everyone’s business at MyTutor – we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults, and we expect all directors, staff and tutors to share this commitment. This post is subject to a Basic DBS check.

The Day to Day

  • Protect our visual identity: You’ll make sure that our visual identity is outstanding and consistently applied to all our customer touchpoints, from social media to the web.
  • Work with both marketing and product teams: You’ll be embedded in the marketing team to help deliver a wide range of brand communications across different formats, some simple, some more complex. You’ll also work with other designers in the company and our Product Marketers, helping you bring the product to life in our marketing.
  • Feedback and collaboration: You’ll work with cross-functional teams to produce designs that are both creative and solve customer and internal problems. You’ll take others on the creative process with you and be comfortable taking feedback from both designers and other members of the team.
  • Design for digital and offline: You’ll spend your time inside various platforms, creating or bringing together designs. We use Google Slides (and wider Google Suite), inDesign, Canva, Pardot/Hubspot (for landing pages and email sends), Typeform (for surveys) and Figma. Our partners may use other tools to build their assets, such as newsletters or brochures, for which you’ll build compatible designs. You’ll also create designs for tools such as Webflow and our CMS, which appeal to both existing customers and future customers, to drive acquisition and retention.
  • Creative problem solver: You’ll work across multiple different mediums to make sure that we’re communicating with our customers in the most engaging way possible. Whether that’s experimenting with video ads on TikTok, creating annual PDF reports or designing interactive micro-sites you’ll always come up with creative responses to any brief you’re given.
