Job Description

3D Character Animator Roles x 2 (Experienced & Graduate vacancies)

The CharacterShop is an established award-winning animation production studio with experience across a broad range and scale of projects for children’s media, family entertainment, corporate communications and commercials.

We have an opportunity for two talented 3D Character Animators to join our team.

The successful applicants will use storyboards, animatics and other visual reference and work with the Animation Supervisor and team to complete shots in accordance with the stories they are assigned. They will bring characters to life with strong knowledge of anatomy and movements and using acting skills to communicate ideas an audience can empathise with.


We expect applicants to have 2+ years of experience in a middle-weight or senior position working on a film/television production. Applicants need to be capable of managing their own workload and complete the shots allocated on time, as well as ensuring their work is communicating clearly from blocking through to final animation.



We have an opportunity for a recent graduate with some entry level experience in a TV/Film environment and 2+ years of experience with a 3D programme, such as 3DSMax or Maya. Applicants should have exceptional understanding of animation principles, excellent understanding of body mechanics, performance and strong posing, be comfortable using various types of 3D rigs, the ability to find creative solutions to a problem and manage their own workload and time.


Must Haves

  • Experience using a 3d animation package (3DS Max or Maya)
  • Show understanding of anatomy, perspective and composition
  • A confident and creative approach to your animation and the ability to give characters unique personalities and emotions through animation
  • An eye for animation principals and detail, helping to bring smooth, dynamic and reactive animations to a scene
  • Excellent planning, communication and interpersonal skills. The ability to work well in a team environment, communicate well and be able to take notes and direction
  • A strong work ethic, with the ability to complete tasks by the assigned deadlines while keeping quality levels to a high standard

Both positions will be full-time, 12-month contracts initially with a view to extending to permanent contracts. Our animators are currently working remotely but can be studio based in the longer term.
