Graphic Designer

RD Consulting is looking for a rock star graphic designer to join our busy team. You won’t be just a graphic designer though; we are looking for someone who is comfortable working in a team across planning, strategy, and event management.

You’ll need to be comfortable creating design assets not just in Adobe Creative Suite but also SharePoint, PowerPoint, social media, and websites. Anything our awesome clients need. And, you’ll be able to do it quickly.

That’s why you’ll also need great people skills because you’ll often be working on a client site whether that is the Department of Defence, another government department, one of our private enterprise clients, or creating assets for RD Consulting itself.

If you can’t tell already, we are all about delivering amazing work to our clients and so we will need you to be committed, adaptable, and flexible in helping make that happen in our fast-paced and dynamic environment.

So, whether it is creating an infographic to help a client communicate important information, designing slides for one of our training programs, creating social media assets to help someone’s branding and engagement, reviewing a client’s current design assets, developing new ones, or jumping into a planning meeting with a client to help share your expertise, you certainly won’t be bored!

We work, or have worked, with some great clients including the Department of Defence, ActewAGL, Australian National University, Oracle,, Telstra, and the Australian War Memorial.

You’ll need a good understanding of the Australian Defence environment and be able to work in Canberra.

It is also highly desirable that you have a valid Baseline Security Clearance or preferably NV1 or NV2 or at a minimum be an Australian Citizen. Further, you should have a degree, or other qualifications in design, or extensive industry experience.


The salary will be commensurate with your skills and expertise. We are, however, open to applications from junior graphic designers through to mid-level graphic designers.

Full-time, part-time, and casual roles may be available or contract with the possibility of extension or move to full-time.

In fact, we are really looking to add awesome people to our team so, if we fall in love with more than one of you, we’ll find a way to make you part of the RD Consulting team!
