You’re driven, resourceful, and above all else - remarkably smart.
You love a good challenge. You are the first to roll up your sleeves and work with relentless energy until you solve the unsolvable, beat the unbeatable and you always come out on top. Passable doesn’t cut it – you’ve got fire in your belly to learn more, do more and be more. For you, the sweetest success is shared success and you’re known for your good nature. You’ll fit right in at Syneos Health where we surround ourselves with the most talented and agile professionals in the industry, but we check our egos at the door.



The Senior Graphic Designer will be chiefly responsible for creating digital graphics for various training modalities and reports to the Art Director of the Learning Solutions team at Syneos Health.

This person will conceptualize ideas, both individually and/or as part of a broader team effort, for virtual and live (classroom-based) training and, in turn, follow through on these concepts by designing attractive and highly engaging visuals to express verbal/written information. This person may also create other collateral such as posters, user guides, booklets, etc. for both internal and external clients.  The Senior Graphic Designer is primarily an individual contributor.

The Senior Graphic Designer will also take on the role of Creative Strategist (CS), a project-centric position, for various client projects. This entails being the lead graphic designer on a given project, providing art direction and guidance towards all specific deliverables, ensuring they all are coherent and engaging, while aligning to the client goals, and internal requests. The CS is also expected to assist the respective project Manager (PM) with resourcing and file management while on the given project.

This person may also be asked to provide general artistic input, feedback and coaching for junior team members and contractors as needed, providing guidance based on client brand alignment, efficient work methods and visual interpretation of core ideas.

This person needs to be ready and willing to work in a fast-paced environment where several projects typically need to be delivered in a given week, and sometimes within the same day. We are also looking for a person that is a fit with our company culture, and is willing to help out a colleague when needed, as they would do likewise. This position will be office-based; however, a work from home option is up for discussion.

  • Works efficiently and effectively to adhere to manage their own time against project budgets and timelines; maximizing their own utilization
