Polished Man Graphic Designer


About the Role

The in-house Graphic Design role is a crucial part of Polished Man’s work. You will be working alongside a fast-paced team in an exciting and agile non profit, sometimes on regular deliverables such as campaign reports, and sometimes on conceptualising the look and feel of a new campaign. The position requires someone with excellent design skills, deep knowledge and experience across the Adobe suite, an open and creative mind, and the ability to work in a fast-paced environment with tight deadlines.

Most of our team at ygap headquarters is located in Melbourne, however, we are open to remote work for the right candidate, with flexibility in work times.

About ygap and Polished Man

ygap is an international development organisation that supports early-stage social impact ventures with locally-led solutions to local problems. We believe in the power of entrepreneurship as an effective and sustainable way to provide opportunities for people to lift themselves out of poverty and disadvantage.

We find, accelerate and support the growth of impact ventures led by local entrepreneurs who deeply understand the unique challenges of their communities and are best placed to develop solutions. We currently support ventures across Africa, South Asia, the Pacific Islands and Australia. ygap has offices and local teams that lead our programs in each area that we work.

Running for the month of October, the Polished Man campaign celebrates the great men and women in our society: those who paint a nail, raise funds, raise their voice and actively commit to ending violence against children. Over the last 7 years, we have raised close to $7M, and engaged over 110,000 people from around the world to get behind this movement funding both trauma recovery and trauma prevention in Australia and around the world. In the past we had the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Zac Efron, Kelly Slater and Malcolm Turnbull get behind us, just to name a few!
