  • Responsible for creating presentation collateral with a variety of PC-based software, predominantly PowerPoint, but also identifying other design programs to use to create the most effective output for the audience. This will include delivering a range of high-quality presentation collateral for AXA IM marketing campaigns, events and sales initiatives including standard product pitch presentations (for different audiences) and interactive thematic presentations. Output will consist of printed and projected presentations, interactive presentations, portrait-style handouts plus the manipulation of information graphics and data visualisation.
  • Collaborate with the digital marketing team to develop sound UX and UI solutions across our digital portfolio (websites, digital tools, newsletters, email campaigns, social media accounts). This will include initial development, storyboards, wireframes, scenarios and use cases.
  • Play a key role in helping to translate sometimes complex concepts, systems and data into engaging and straightforward concepts through visual storytelling and rapid prototyping methods, presentation and pitch decks. Brochures or other design assets as required.
  • Be responsible for observing the design practices from our competitors to help to support the continuous improvements of our collateral and presentations.
  • Ensure the correct application of the AXA IM brand guidelines.
  • Maintain and develop strong relationships with the content team, product specialists, portfolio managers, sales, local marketing, compliance and other business functions as appropriate
