Creative Director Job Description Sample
If you're just looking for a J-O-B or the next good "opportunity" to move up the career ladder, this is probably not for you. But if you're looking for something different, maybe it's here on our Creative Team.
"Our Creative Team is sharp, world class and has a voice. We need others with the same- because iron sharpens iron.
The thing I love the most is that we're selling more than just products; it's about HOPE, and actually helping people and changing their lives and family trees. You can't get that at the average agency." — Creative Director
We have put together a Creative Team of over 120 people that is bigger than the sum of its parts. We are on a mission to change the world.
Money problems, marriage problems, career problems and life problems are strangling the creativity of everyday people and businesses. We want to CHANGE that culture. We HAVE to.
It has to stop. We want people to be free from the chains of these problems so they can do what they were meant to do. Our mission to change the world isn't easy.
We experience resistance every day, because what we believe is absolutely countercultural. We're weird. We actually hate debt.
We actually cut up our credit cards . . . like, for real. We don't use them in our entire business. We don't use debt.
Some of us are still fighting our way out of it, but we aren't going back in. We are on the Creative Team—on a big mission and nothing will stop us.
WHAT PROBLEMS WOULD YOU BE SOLVING HERE AS A CREATIVE?
"I came from the ad agency world where we served by helping other people's businesses grow. Here at Ramsey, we get to make the decisions that help OUR business grow, and in turn, help others in the world grow. Additionally, we place more emphasis on personal and professional growth than any creative place I've ever worked." — Associate Creative Director
You have to be a PROBLEM SOLVER to work here. The two biggest problems we're daily working toward solving are:
- How do we get our life-changing message of HOPE into the hearts, minds and souls of people who need help in a way that is CLEAR, WARM, BOLD and REAL?
- How do we create a house of brands that looks and feels like Ramsey across every line of business we have? Did you know that we are so much more than Dave Ramsey?
We are Ramsey Solutions. What this means is that we are more than Financial Peace University and Dave, and we have many products that are growing and expanding past him (i.e., Ramsey Personalities, SmartDollar, EveryDollar, EntreLeadership, Ramsey Education, Business Boutique, SmartVestor and more). We're looking for people who are PUMPED UP and PASSIONATE about solving the problem of how to build a house of brands underneath the umbrella of Ramsey Solutions, while still threading a cohesive story of HOPE through every piece of creative content. That is one of the biggest challenges our Creative Team faces today as we look toward the future as a world-class creative team.
Have you ever looked around at any of our websites? You should peek around and start asking yourself, What would I bring to the table to add value to this team?
SO, DOES THIS SOUND LIKE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE IN THE PAST?
10+ years of design experience
5-8+ years of experience leading a creative team of designers
Experience with: Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, InVision, Abstract, Keynote, JIRA
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE WHAT YOU WANT TO DO?
- CARE: You have to care a lot about people—both your team and the people who are consuming what your team creates.
We call them our fans, and we are HUGE fans of our fans. Because at the end of the day, we exist and we create for the people who are NOT on our team.
We exist to bring them HOPE.
If you are not fired up to change lives in a way that is bold, unashamed and countercultural, we don't want you here. We need people who are all in and care so much that they will do whatever it takes to get our message to more and more people.
- PASSION: The message and content we are creating and putting out into the world are very countercultural, and you have to have a level of anger at the status quo to give you just enough push to get FIRED UP about the work we do. Do you feel CALLED and COMMITTED to join what we're doing here?
- COMMUNICATION: Ability to communicate with all levels of leadership, including VPs and C-suite. You will also be communicating and working cross-functionally with other teams and lines of business.
- BRAND VISION: Ability to elevate a brand to the next level, and clearly cast that vision to your team of designers.
- MENTORSHIP: Passion and ability to develop Designers/Junior Designers on the team.
We're looking for leaders who want to EMPOWER their team while developing them. You need to have the ability to raise up other leaders. You must work well with others. It's not all about you; it's about the team.
- EXTREME EXCELLENCE: Pursuit of excellence in the everyday.
You must be GREAT at your discipline. And then strive for more.
- WAVE-MAKER: Ability to bring new ideas to the table that we have never thought about in order to make waves in this industry and wake people up from the financial messes they find themselves in.
"Creatives should want to work here so they can be led by the best creative leaders in the country that not only heavily invest in you as a person—and a designer or leader—but also use their influence (which extends all the way to board level) to make sure creative is seen as more than design, but actually problem solving that should be involved in all aspects of the business. This is an extremely rare view and one that I've only seen here at Ramsey in my 14 years of experience in the creative field." — Creative Director
WHAT ARE THE PERKS OF BEING A RAMSEY TEAM MEMBER?
401k Match: After one year as a team member, we'll match 4%. (You can still contribute the first year. There is simply no match until after year one.)
Health Savings Account (HSA) Match: We match $500/year.
A TRUE 40-hour workweek. We work really hard in those 40 hours, but we want you to go home and invest in things outside of work at the end the day.
We host world-renowned speakers on a weekly basis.
Ministry time: After one year, we pay you for one full workweek, so you can volunteer for your favorite charity or nonprofit.
We offer ongoing personal and professional development training by the best in the industry.
We throw out of this world all-company events: Spelling Bee, Battle of the Bands, Christmas Party, Field Day and more!
We have been named one of the Best Places to Work in Nashville 11 times. We're very proud of that!
If you read all that and you think it sounds fantastic, please APPLY! We'll take a look at your work and see if it's what we're looking for.
If it's not, don't be discouraged. It's just not the kind of work we're looking for at this point.
