Dear Animators of the World!

We are seeking talented freelance animators to join our team and help us produce our science communication animations.

The company
Working with an internationally renowned group of research leaders, we aim to simplify complex basic and fundamental research by making it accessible to a wider audience.

The role
You will be taking instruction and direction from our animation team to create animations that are consistent with our brand and animation style.

You will have passion for animation and already have work that demonstrates an understanding of animation principals and character acting.

About the animations
We will provide you with direct access to a bank of assets as a basis for you to work from. We have our own brand identity which you must follow closely – we will provide you with some guidelines for you to reference when creating these animations.

These animations will vary from 1 minute to 4 minutes in length and vary in format, such as Flat 2D, Flat 2D with 3D, Whiteboard and Full 3D. We have set fees which we pay for each animation, depending on style and length.

Essential Requirements:

  • Speak fluent English (both spoken and written)
  • Good communication skills to enable you to work take direction from our animators and project managers
  • 3 years’ + of animation experience
  • Degree in animation or a relevant area
  • Proficiency in Adobe After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop
  • Be able to work to strict deadlines
  • Have a positive attitude to client feedback


  • An interest in science and good scientific understanding would be advantageous

If we feel you are a potential candidate, the next stage will be for you to complete a brief 20-second sample animation (i.e., show your abilities to animate a character walking and passing an object to another character). This will allow us to see if you are able to complete the projects according to our instructions. Please note that there is no payment for this as this is a test and is part of the interview process.
