If you love being creative, are organized, have an eye for detail and are willing to ensure an exceptional customer experience, this may be the role for you! We need an action-oriented person to join our team who is ready to jump in and get to work. 

 

Note: Our clients are largely in the nonprofit and education industries. The person filling this role will need to feel inspired by creating for these spaces. 

 

At Impressions, we help organizations fill marketing and event resource gaps while building meaningful community connections. We thrive on helping our clients make an impact and achieve their goals.

The perfect person for this position must...

  • Have the ability to multitask and thrive in a deadline-driven environment. We move quickly for our clients, and need your help to make that happen. 

  • Be able to take constructive feedback well and work collaboratively with a team, yet still be able to objectively and kindly defend creative principles.

  • Be skilled in creating, editing, and promoting visual content.

  • Be a self-starter. Our team is small, but achieves a lot for our clients. You must be willing and able to jump in and keep projects moving forward with little direction. If you need reminders to get work done, this position is not for you. 

  • Be an excellent communicator. You must be able to show initiative in communicating with team members to achieve desired goals. 

  • Provide exceptional customer service. Our client relationships are important, and maintaining excellent service, that goes above and beyond expectations, is a must! While this position is not frequently client-facing, our service sets us apart from others, and we want to make sure you are on board with this priority.

  • Be dependable. We are counting on you to complete the design elements needed, and to take initiative to ensure a project well-done.

  • Thrive when working both independently and as part of a team. 

    • Work Independently: Most of the work completed for this position will be done remotely. You must be a self-starter, who is able to complete tasks without reminders, and without someone encouraging you to get to work. 

    • Work as a Team: Though small, our team is mighty. We accomplish a lot of work, and the input of all team members is needed. Building positive team relationships is important, as our internal relationships are reflected to our clients. 

  • Enjoy learning. Our industry changes, and we must adapt and change with it. If the idea of learning new technology, tools and techniques makes you break into a sweat… this is not the position for you.
