To succeed in this role, you will need to be self-motivated, comfortable working unsupervised, and able to take into account a variety of functional, technical, and user requirements when designing solutions. You will be able to communicate well with creative, technical, and business audiences and you will see the value of collaborating with other experts to deliver the best solution.

 

Your main responsibilities will include:

  • Designing beautiful, accessible, and responsive user interfaces for both websites and digital products, in line with provided brand guidelines and toolkits
  • Creating and rapidly iterating on ideas using process flows, wireframes, hi-fidelity designs, and prototypes to effectively communicate designs and behaviours
  • Building and maintaining design systems and pattern libraries to make delivery as effective as possible
  • Supporting client workshops and participating in client feedback sessions
  • Acting as the voice of design inside the team, ensuring we never miss out on making things as beautiful as they should be
  • Keeping up to date with the latest trends in design and accessibility and ensuring we evolve our processes and tools appropriately
  • Supporting the wider team with design tasks including discovery outputs, mockups, and other items

Ideally, you will have spent a few years working in a similar role in an agency or similar environment. Our perfect candidate will also have:

  • An understanding of HTML and CSS, so you can design with development in mind
  • Experience working with a team of developers
  • Experience with ad-hoc design tasks like presentations, reports, and icons
  • A degree in a related discipline (UX Design, Product Design, Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design, Psychology, or similar).

These are essential:

  • Expert user of design and prototyping tools such as Sketch, Figma, XD, etc.
  • Experience designing complex sites or digital products, beyond simple brochure sites
  • Experience creating mobile-first designs
  • Experience building, maintaining, and working with design systems and/or digital style guides
  • Experience building, maintaining, and re-using design libraries and pattern libraries
  • Experience understanding a brief to formulate the most appropriate creative solution.

To help you get there, you will have the support of a highly experienced non-executive director as well as whatever training you need.
