Job Description

(Inside IR35) Service Designer / Systems Thinker - Public Sector/Central Gov Experienced

Contract duration - to Feb 2021

  • Up to £450 per day Umbrella

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Service Designer with one of our clients in Leeds. This is a chance to work on services that matter, with people who value design and create work you're proud to talk about.

What you will be doing

  • Translate research insight into opportunities and solutions for service users via the application of design research methods e.g. user journeys, service mapping, prototyping etc.
  • Develop hands on interaction designs solutions for products to enable the service.

You will:

  • Have experience of solving design and research challenges through collaboration and user participation.
  • An appreciation for and demonstrated ability to connect design solutions to pragmatic implementation.
  • Have a design-related degree or experience in product, interaction or UX design role.
  • A belief that a focus on people is fundamental in creating inclusive polices, products and services for social impact.

Ideally you will also have:

  • Experience of working directly with front-end code to update prototypes - skills in HTML, CSS and java script aren't essential, but designers will learn the basics.
  • Be able to write user interfaces.
  • Experience of working in technical teams and complex environments.
  • Be able to manage other people's work, including planning work and checking it to make sure it's consistent and appropriate across products and services
