Lead Animator – Console/PC Projects – Remote Working

Lead Animator – Console/PC Projects – Remote Working

We have partnered with an exciting games studio based in the South East, who require a Lead Animator to help work on a range of action fuelled titles, some of which have earned high praise and acclaim. The Studio were formed by a range of key figures in the games industry and over the years have built an experienced AAA quality team.

As the Lead Animator, you will be working closely with the art, design and tech teams to create the best in-game animation. You’ll be an expert in leading and mentoring and getting the best out of people. You will be working on a new IP, which is still early in production, so you’ll have plenty of areas to influence and create your own ideas.  

You’ll be an expert in both cinematic and in-game character animation, with a preference for someone with skills with both motion capture and keyframe animation, however the role is open to someone who has experience of one of these.

This role can offer this Lead Animator a chance to own quite a large area of the project and would suit someone who enjoys working in a small team, where they can get involved with the concept phases and really make a difference on the final output. All whilst managing, mentoring and leading a small team in the process.

This role can be 100% remote working (indefinitely) from anywhere in the UK, however you must be available onsite for critical Animation shoots. If remote working isn’t for you, the role can also offer a hybrid work model if you prefer working in-house some days.


  • Past Animation experience in the games industry
  • Knowledge of either cinematic, motion captured or key framed character animation 
  • Good understanding of Unity or Unreal
  • Experience with any of the following - Max, Maya or Motion Builder 
  • Knowledge of anatomy and human body mechanics
  • Blender experience is a plus!

In return the studio can offer a competitive salary, pension, relocation assistance, a generous holiday allowance and other amazing studio benefits such as social events, game launch parties, discounted gym memberships and merchandise. Also, the chance to work with games industry veterans who have a great track record of delivering high profile successful projects.
