From quiet beginnings, parkrun has grown into a worldwide social movement with community at its beating heart.

 

Committed to breaking down barriers to participation in regular physical activity and bringing communities together, we deliver free, weekly timed events every weekend that people of all ages and backgrounds can take part in – as walkers, joggers, runners, volunteers and spectators.

 

Our mission is to create a healthier and happier planet. Now in our 18th year, parkrun is delivered in over 2,200 locations across 23 countries.

 

The role

We are seeking an experienced graphic designer to shape and develop an in house design function, based within our fast paced and dynamic Communications team.

 

The ideal candidate will have a strong graphic design portfolio that includes work across multiple platforms; with demonstrable experience in bringing complex concepts to life.

 

You’ll work on a wide range of projects, across multiple teams and campaigns, helping to bring parkrun’s ambitious plans to life.

 

We offer great flexible working conditions and a range of employee benefits including a contributory pension plan, 20 days paid leave (plus Bank Holidays) and a commitment to develop your skills and provide training.

 

We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups, to enable us to bring diversity of perspective to our thinking and conversation. We pride ourselves on being inclusive and it’s important to us that we strive to have a workforce that is diverse in the widest sense. If you share our values and ambitions, and have the skills and experience, then we would be delighted to receive your application.
