Open Positions

Head of Design




Hybrid (Nottingham, UK)



Are you an experienced design leader who thrives on cultivating exceptional design teams and driving innovation? Are you passionate about people, process, and purpose, and have a proven track record of delivering remarkable digital design solutions?

Atomic is a dynamic and forward-thinking digital agency which works with some extremely high-profile clients including JCB, Rolls-Royce and Center Parcs. Our focus is crafting slick digital products that users love.

We're currently seeking an accomplished design professional to join us in the role of Head of Design.

First and foremost we’re seeking a leader. Someone who can motivate, inspire, coach and mentor our growing team of designers to produce their very best work. Secondly, but equally importantly, we’re seeking someone who can present design concepts in a compelling way to engage our clients (current and prospective). And lastly, we want someone who possesses deep knowledge of design methodologies and is on top of the latest UX/UI trends and technologies.

We realise we’re a little biased but we genuinely feel opportunities like this don’t come along very often. If you’re passionate about problem-solving in a design context and have a strong portfolio showcasing intuitive, user-focused designs then we’d love to hear from you.

What we are offering

High-profile work

You’ll work on big projects for major global brands – playing a key part in producing some game-changing ideas.

Profit share

You’ll be rewarded for your hard-work and imagination with a share of the profits you help us to make.

Vitality Health Insurance

Your wellbeing will be taken care of with easy access to a wide range of healthcare and services through Vitality Health Insurance.

Remote & hybrid working

You’ll get the choice to work in our modern studios, from your own home or a bit of both – whatever suits your situation best.

Learning & development

We’ll help you make the most of your talent and gain the skills and specialisms that interest you most.

Work with the latest tech

We constantly invest in the latest and most effective new technologies – so you’ll have the best tools to do your job.

A team effort

You’ll join a friendly and supportive culture where asking for help, and getting it, is the norm.

Socials & events

You’ll be invited to regular get-togethers, social events and fun team activities (that are actually fun).

View all benefits

Please note:-

This position requires you to be in the office at least once per week so you will need to be based within a reasonable distance of Nottingham (you can of course come in more if you wish!)

You will be required to undertake our screening and pre-employment checks, which includes a criminal record (DBS) check. Any adverse check may result in an offer of employment being withdrawn

We do not hold a sponsors licence therefore you must have an existing right to work in the UK in order for us to progress your application
