They will help you with this. As the Midweight Designer you must be able to plan time effectively to meet deadlines as well as producing work to a consistently high creative standard that is grammatically correct and free of errors. 

Joining as the Midweight Designer you will also create high-quality design concepts across various campaigns whilst nurturing and developing key accounts in an ever-evolving studio. Working on projects from inception to completion (print, online, instore or events) you will liaise with team members across the studio to deliver that all important creative input.
