What employees say

“I’ve worked at xDesign for three years and understand why people choose agency life - every day, project, team and client represents a new challenge. Sharing ideas is encouraged here, and every team member is valued equally. I have autonomy to do my job the way I want to with the support of my manager. My job has its challenges, but facing the good and bad times with humour and good grace is how we roll here.”

What defines us

Founded in 2010, we remain owner-operated, and our shareholders continue to contribute meaningfully to the day-to-day running of the business. That makes our workplace uniquely collaborative across all levels of the business. We believe that everyone should have an equal voice, and we encourage all team members to openly and honestly provide feedback about their work experience, which is collected and addressed regularly by team leaders, managers, and directors.

Our bold, talented teams are what enable us to drive growth and look to the future, and the way we work is part of what makes xDesign special. As we move ahead, our focus remains on continuing to build and strengthen our relationships with current and future clients, by taking the time to fully onboard projects and understand each client's business problems, so that we can help craft the perfect solution while working as an extension of an existing team.

We offer five tips to make your application stand out: 

1. Tailor your CV to reflect the job description 

63% of recruiters - including our own talent acquisition specialists! - prefer CVs that are tailored to fit specific role requirements.

2. Optimise your online profiles

94% of recruiters use LinkedIn to evaluate applicants before an interview. We love to see up-to-date experience and summaries!

3. Use examples 

Instead of saying that you're the perfect fit for the role, show it. 

4. Polish your portfolio 

Include testimonials where possible: over 80% of people are more likely to use a service which comes recommended, and our recruiters take testimonials and referrals as serious reflections of your capabilities and fit for a role. 

5. Talk about who you are, not just what you do 

You're in charge of telling your story.
