North Tribe is a creative agency focused on finding new ways to captivate the market. Nothing about our approach is traditional and we are always open to adventure in the creative space.

Every approach we take is grounded in research, reflection and authentic storytelling and, most importantly, we elevate every brand we engage with.

Our culture is “be yourself” and add your own value. We say what we think, we are free thinkers and we express ourselves. We don’t limit ourselves to traditional advertising but rather find out what works for the NOW.

Looking to take the next step as a senior designer or need a new challenge to broaden your experience? This could be for you.

We are looking for a senior creative to complete our team. You will need to take the lead on your projects, be able to understand briefs and ask the right questions. From clever concepts to first drafts, you’re not afraid to work harder than the rest to produce the most impactful work. You know how to turn ideas into campaigns you’re proud of. You want to work alongside a creative director and a team that is eager to grow and develop clients. You make things happen and enjoy the creative pressure that comes with it. Your sense of humor allows you to meet tight deadlines. Questioning the advertising brief and standards is natural and you quickly adopt new strategies, never stuck in the past.

You really need to be able to have:

  • The ability to spot an idea and turn it into an impactful campaign
  • Be able to work on multiple projects/brands and switch easily when needed
  • Strong knowledge of creating for major social media platforms and their specific capabilities/limitations
  • You admire other creative ideas from your peers and play well as part of a team.


  • Diploma/Qualification in Visual Communication/Graphic Design
  • No less than five years of agency experience
  • Excellent time management skills and experience with tight deadlines
  • Attention to detail and precision in your work
  • Ability to self-manage projects
  • High level skills in Adobe Creative Suite (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Adobe XD are essential)
  • The ability to take your work from reproduction to ready to print
  • Excellent PowerPoint skills and exposure to MS Word
  • Knowledge of WordPress is a BIG advantage.
