We’d love for you to join us.

About the role:

  1. Work with social justice organisations for meaningful impact.
  2. Work on a diverse range of projects, each requiring their own unique approach.
  3. Be part of a tight-knit team that’s nimble and responsive with a high degree of self-direction and responsibility.


Who are we? 

Principle is a progressive campaigning agency, involved with some of Australia’s most significant election, advocacy and issue based campaigns. From the federal election through to the marriage equality plebiscite – you’ll find our humble and playful team producing creative and smart campaigns which leave Australia a better place.

You’ll be joining us to help create all sorts of things – from brand concepts for organisations and campaigns, action based websites, through to fast turnaround ad campaigns and online interactive experiences which help people understand complex issues. This creative will be seen by millions of Australians around key decision making moments.


Role Criteria:

  • A strong desire to blend your ethics, politics and (dare we say it) principles with your work.
  • Extensive experience working with a broad array of design programs including Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.
  • Mid to senior level experience in branding and web design including being able to create designs from scratch or work within established guidelines with an understanding of the production process that goes into bringing things to life (digital and print).
  • Understanding of UX design and a passion for putting people at the centre of your work.
  • Strong attention to detail.
  • Experience with client comms and an ability to understand or interpret what clients are hoping to achieve, and pro-actively suggest design solutions.

Nice to have:

  • Experience in social justice and campaigning sectors.
  • Experience in editing, animation and print design.
  • Experience working with developers and animators to bring your designs to life.
  • Experience with CSS and HTML.

These things matter less to us than your talent, initiative and values. Even if only a few of these criteria apply to you, we’d love to hear from you if you’ve got design chops and passion for social good.

The Mechanics:

This is a full time 6 month contract with high potential to go permanent. The salary range for this role is $70,000 – $85,000 per annum depending on experience. We’re based in Sydney and it’d be great if you were too – but let’s talk regardless.

You’ll be reporting to our Managing Partner/Executive Producer, and working closely alongside our existing Development, Strategy, and Copywriting roles.

We specifically encourage women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, people of colour, LGBTIQA+ people, people with disabilities, and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to apply.
