How about managing an award-winning design team while enjoying the thrill of conceptualising design strategies for some of the biggest brands in business? And your passions? Does a fast-paced, high-growth company that cherishes a mission to improve the world resonate with you?
If so, you’ve stumbled across the right place and right opportunity. At just the right time.
Mind Gym London is looking for a Creative Director to set the learning world on fire.  You will be leading a best-in-class team, which you will help grow, while setting the scene and strategy for multiple design initiatives and client projects.
The focus of your role will be collaborating with our in-house team of psychologists to improve the lives of employees. Working with FTSE 250/Fortune 500 clients like Salesforce, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, and MGM – to name a few, enabling a marriage of science and design.
This is a role that allows you a balance of people, design thinking and conceptual development for both our internal stakeholders and external clients. You’ll have a seat at the table to set the function’s strategy and direction – while receiving the support, collaboration, and resources to take the entire team, and brand, to the next level.

About you:

  • A creative visionary (and digital lead) who is passionate about using the power of design to change the way people think and behave
  • Able to demonstrate previous success in running a design studio and assimilating all aspects of the creative world– content, copy and design – for global, complex projects
  • Inquisitive and collaborative by nature – you jump at the opportunity to work cross-functionally for the greater good of the business
  • Passionate for (and downright good at) managing, developing and building out a design team
  • Equipped with a conceptual mind and has the gravitas for delivering a visionary message
  • Detail-oriented, with a strong eye for visual language.
  • A name in the industry – your designs are industry leading and maybe even award-winning
  • Not afraid to step-up as a leader, but equally able to roll up your sleeves and get a bit of creative “dirt” on you from time to time
  • Able to leverage commercial experience to bring your design concepts to life for clients
  • Able to make use of extensive organisational and planning skills to facilitate a smooth workflow through the team


What’s the job:


  • Manage and grow the UK design team of eager and vibrant designers in our High Street Kensington office
  • Create compelling concepts and lead this cross-functional team to bring the Mind Gym flavor to client projects
  • Present with enthusiasm, confidence, and flair to both internal and external stakeholders
  • Ensure the creative excellence for all client work through a rigorous QA process
  • Work seamlessly with internal stakeholders to identify and deliver on ways to leverage design for commercial opportunities, and encourage the growing role of design in the business’s offering.
  • Keep a close eye on operational details of the team, like increasing efficiencies, time-saving processes, and reducing costs
  • Change employee behavior (and ultimately, lives) through designs that deliver learning transfer
