Careers at Afiniti

Creative Lead

We are a fresh, creative and pragmatic business change consultancy focused on our clients’ success, the growth of our people and our business. Our values are putting the client first, having people at the heart of what we do and acting with integrity. Our ethos is to attract, retain and develop our talent network of like-minded people. This ethos is fundamental to our way of thinking and working. We expect behaviours that reflect our values; we take ownership and accountability, are proactive, diligent, positive and curious. We demonstrate sound commercial acumen and are committed to our partnership. We are strong team players, often going the extra mile for our clients and colleagues; and are committed to making work enjoyable, fun and our partnership a great place to work.

We help our clients make change stick, whether it’s driven by new technology, organisational structures, ways of working, or a combination of all three. We do this by offering a powerful blend of change management, communications, learning and project management expertise, all underpinned by our creative capabilities in bringing change to life. Creative work produced for our clients ranges from branding and visual identities for change programmes/initiatives to supporting collateral including videos, animations, rich pictures, infographics, presentations and posters.
