Exciting opportunity for a SC Cleared Service Designer to work for a well-regarded digital consultancy on a mostly remote basis. You would be working on one of their key government digital transformations for the UK Home Office.

You will be excited by the challenge of creating digital services that work across multiple channels, devices, browsers, and platforms, seeing the bigger picture as well as the fine detail.

In return you would be provided with a generous day rate, the flexibility to work remotely with a small amount of travel required to the client side in London on occasion and with a strong possibility of the contract being extended.

Your responsibilities:

  • Lead service design and design thinking projects involving innovation and problem solving to generate concepts and proposals for new propositions, or to evolve and improve existing services
  • Planning and facilitating workshops and design sprints with clients or customers, including ideation and co-creation, priority ranking, value proposition, service definition and customer experience mapping
  • Leading on client debriefs to playback insights and findings, making it easy for clients to connect the dots with clear communication and actionable recommendations
  • Highly proficient at creating artifacts and deliverables, which will include research reports, user stories, sketches, wireframes, sitemaps, journey maps, service blueprints and prototypes.
  • Most, if not all your projects, will be driven by insight - and will require you to engage with research colleagues and research output. You will be involved in insight reporting, and user experience testing
  • Working directly with stakeholders, involving them openly in your processes, helping them distil project goals and objectives into project requirements and championing the needs of customers throughout the project.
  • Coaching junior consultants and teams
  • Highly motivated and self-managing, with good time management skills and the ability to deliver according to budget and deadlines
  • Take an active interest in the service design discipline and regularly share the subject with the broader team and the community

Your skills and experience:

  • Multiple years of experience working in a Service Design role, supporting the design of digital services, and applying strategic thinking to the process
  • Experience working within an agency or consultancy environment is desirable
  • Strong stakeholder management skills, with experience championing human-centred design, design thinking, and innovation.
  • Strong content design, excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with a good commercial understanding.
  • Good use of tools and platforms such as Miro, Figma, Sketch, Invision and Adobe Creative Suite. Graphics/illustration capability is also desirable.
  • Working with multidisciplinary teams to produce exceptional digital experiences, whilst balancing the needs of users and clients throughout.
