Who are PowerfulPoints?
We aren't your ordinary company and we are not
seeking an ordinary person. Our company logo is an orange zebra because we want
our client's to stand out from the herd and this motif represents our company's
culture as well. Our passion is to help our clients communicate powerfully so
that their audience is inspired. If you think we create PowerPoint slides you'd
be wrong...we create presentations, motion graphics, videos, 3D and much more.
Our clients often want
us to create their web site, their logo, in 2d or 3d, as well as other material
in English or other languages. You will probably get more chance at expressing your creativity with us than just about any other design company.
We pride ourselves on our professionalism and
delivering great product to our clients but we aim to do so in a fun, enjoyable
atmosphere that can sometimes be described as a little cheeky. Employees are
actively encouraged to express their opinions, try new concepts and develop
their skill sets. (We are really committed to training.) We are a truly multicultural company celebrating and drawing on diversity as a key advantage of what we do.
Like us, our clients are world leaders in their fields, in a range of
industries, from fast food, mining, construction, finance, transport and some
you never even knew existed. We also work with a range of SME's and our
work is shown around the country and around the world: from the US to
Saudi Arabia to Singapore. We don't ever plan to be ordinary. What we do,
we do extremely well and our clients love us for it. We don't want ordinary
designers, we want a team players who want to grow with us. (Ultimately, it will be our designers who
will select the successful candidates.)
If you want a position that offers endless
possibilities, growth, challenge and the opportunity to express your creative
ability in a range of media, you should apply. Now, are you wondering why this add is so plain
and boring? We’re too busy: our designers
don't have the time as they are working on our clients projects so its been
written by me, Lee Featherby, the Managing Director and I'm not a designer (as
you can probably tell) . If you are
interested in this position, send me your portfolio (or a link), along with a
short description of who you are and why would like the job. Be quick…we need the right person now!
You must be located in Australia with a valid work Visa to be considered for these positions. As its a full time role with lots of development opportunities, its unlikely a working holiday visa would be sufficient either...sorry...
