    Senior Graphics Designer, West & Central Africa

    About the role:

    We’re looking for a graphic design all-rounder with exceptional design skills, a creative flair, a passion for visual storytelling, and an ability to produce assets at speed.

    In particular, you’ll work closely with our marketing team, who continuously explore how design can help Sun King’s work to transition diverse households and businesses based across west and central Africa, and beyond, onto clean, affordable solar energy.  You’ll continue to explore and experiment with how design can be used as a tool within storytelling, marketing, sales, and more. The position holder will manage, mentor, and quality-assure the work of four graphic designers based in Nigeria and Togo.

    At Sun King, designers work on a range of projects. You could be creating infographics to communicate how a new solar product works in practice one day, using our new visual brand to create flyers for our customers about sales promotions, working on designs to help fit out one of our 300+ shops, or developing publications for business clients that overview our range of products. 

    We operate an internal creative studio model, where briefs for design will come in from across the organisation. No two days are the same, and you’ll manage a diverse set of graphics materials, for print and online, for various African markets including, but not limited to, Nigeria, Cameroon, Togo, and South Africa. You will work with our in-house creative assets traffic manager, who will manage timelines, deadlines, and creative workflows.

    • Work with sales, marketing, products, operations, and other teams to ensure that content is rigorously reviewed and feedback is attended to.
    • Ensure that your team follow the appropriate content production, content management, and sign-off process per Sun King’s standard operating procedures.
