Working in partnership with the UCL Institute of Child Health, the hospital is the largest paediatric research and training centre in the UK, and one of a very small number of internationally recognised centres of excellence in the field of child health.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Great Ormond Street Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity Design Team, producing work that will ultimately benefit some of the sickest children in the UK.

•    a portfolio of work, demonstrating an ability to work creatively within brand guidelines
•    excellent communication skills both written and verbal
•    experience of working to varied and challenging deadlines
•    a genuine motivation to work in the charity sector.

Please apply with (1) your CV, (2) a PDF showing three examples of your design work, with brief information about the project and what your contribution was, and (3) a covering letter of no more than 500 words, answering the following questions (please give examples where appropriate):
