    The role
    An exciting opportunity has arisen to work on our publishing team in our Brighton office helping to create and build inspiring imaged based content. Our aim is to make sure that every person who visits the site is wowed by their visual experience. We hope the imagery they see will evoke an emotional response that resonates with them, making them want to return to Uneasy no settle and to tell their friends and family about us too.

    Most of the work produced will be for our online travel guides. Working with content from our writers, you will be image sourcing and building the guide content in our bespoke content management system.

A good understanding of Adobe Illustrator would be advantageous as there may also be occasion for editing graphical content. An understanding of Adobe InDesign and basic html would be desirable but not essential. This is a fantastic opportunity to work with the world's leading responsible tourism organisation and become part of our friendly and energetic Brighton team.
