We are currently focusing our work on the creative and cultural industries. We are seeking to recruit talented and motivated assessors across a range of standards in the creative sector, including Junior 2D Artist.

Junior 2D Artist

Junior 2D Artists are responsible for assisting the senior visual effects artist by preparing elements for use in the final VFX shot. Junior 2D artists utilise artistic knowledge in areas such as composition and colour in addition to accepted industry standard compositing software and operating systems. They are expected to work within a team and to be good communicators and problem solvers.

Assessors for this standard should be knowledgeable within the occupation and have recent, relevant experience at the same level, or a more senior level than the apprentices they are assessing.

More information on this standard can be found on the AIM website.
