Animator - Entry Level or Junior (Oxford, 6-12 month contract)

Business Area / Division: Animation
Location: Oxford


Rebellion Oxford has space for 1 more entry-level Trainee or Junior Animator. This involves learning from our in-house animation team and gaining work-based experience on a specific project.

This role will initially be a 6-12 month full-time trainee or employed contract role (not freelance or agency) based in-house at our Oxford head-studio. We can in future consider extending the contract or making it permanent. You must be able to legally work in the UK.


No professional experience is necessary at entry-level as long as you have an animation degree and suitable showreel.

If you have 12 months or more games animation experience then we will consider you at junior level. For junior applicants a relevant degree is still an advantage.

A showreel showing convincing realistic human movement animations is essential so please include a link.
