Job description for graphic designer
 
Background

U-turn is a thriving non-profit that exists to give people the skills to overcome homelessness. We believe that every homeless person should have access to an effective pathway out of homelessness that addresses physical, spiritual and emotional needs so they can become long-term productive members of society.

U-turn used a phased approach to rehabilitation that gives individuals new ways of thinking (via Substance abuse rehab, direct training and professional therapy) as well as workplaces where candidates can test and apply the training they’ve received. In the process, the programme inculcates a healthy work ethic, provides job skills and gives 18-24 months of real work experience so that individuals can graduate and be gainfully employed in the modern South African economy.

Our candidates typically graduate into open market employment and show an 83% long-term success rate! We are currently expanding to more locations both in Cape Town and across South Africa.

The position

We are looking for a self-driven and ambitious designer to join our interdisciplinary communications team. 

You will be ambitious and a self-starter who is driven by your Christian faith and a strong desire to empower people to walk a path out of homelessness. You will understand the importance of your graphics in communicating messages to both housed and non-housed residents so that U-turn is able to reach more people facing homelessness.

You will be joining a non-profit organisation and practical ministry that is growing rapidly, with branches across Cape Town and soon Johannesburg. The work is fast-paced, challenging and well disseminated across media channels. 

It is an excellent opportunity to build a strong portfolio, grow your knowledge and hone your skills while contributing to a profound and meaningful ministry.

Key areas of responsibility
  • Create graphics for print and web including shop signage, flyers, annual reports, responsive web page mockups
  • Assist the Content Creation Coordinator with generating rich comprehensive, multi-media fundraising and awareness campaigns
  • Maintain a process for printed graphics including drafting > feedback > 3 quotes for print if its new artwork > selection > proofing > delivery on deadline
  • Assist with building wordpress pages, ideally tailoring CSS and XHTML (training will be provided if needed)
  • Assist with organising, promoting and coordinating U-turn events (attending events outside of working hours)
  • Use and contribute to the existing planning and systems to ensure continuous improvement of your areas of responsibility
Skills and experience

Essential skills
  • Excellent knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator, and Adobe creative suites
  • An ability to translate print design into web and vice versa, understanding the different handling of resolution and colour
  • A deep understanding of how to translate written copy into visual messaging 
  • An ability to work quickly and efficiently to meet deadlines
  • An ability to work within a team
  • Driving licence
 Ideal skills
  • Strong understanding of online UX and responsive design
  • Knowledge of Wordpress and/or XHTML and CSS
  • Experience of mockups and wireframes for online design
  • Copywriting skills
Next steps

Candidates interested in this position must submit a letter of motivation and CV to az.gro.sselemoh@tnemtiurcer. The letter of motivation should be approximately 1 page in length and include information on why you would like to work at U-turn and how you fulfil the requirements outlined above.

Please note that applications without a letter of motivation will not be considered.
