About the role

As a Lead Service Designer, you'll work within our team of designers, researchers and strategists from diverse backgrounds who work across all areas of the organisation.

It'll be your role to:

  • Work effectively and confidently as part of agile teams to help uncover priorities, visualise outcomes, and define scope.
  • Facilitate workshops and discussions with stakeholders, making sure the business context, needs and risks are properly understood, and that key decisions are well - informed.
  • Communicate with colleagues and stakeholders to manage expectations and incorporate multiple perspectives when defining solutions.
  • Research and document current - state services and experiences and communicate future -state services.
  • Lead others to make good design decisions, bring the user perspective to the forefront and challenge the validity of constraints.
  • Take ownership for your own and others' development and help them to succeed through coaching and mentoring.
  • Collaborate closely with other designers, product owners, and engineers.
  • Be an active member of the design community to share knowledge, create ideas, and embed principles of design across a range of product, service, and customer journeys.

We're looking for someone with:

  • A highly - motivated, proactive and driven approach to achieving individual and collective goals.
  • The ability to cultivate an environment that encourages innovation and continuous improvement.
  • Strong relationship building skills, who can use empathy to find opportunities to bring people together.
  • Credibility when dealing with senior audiences with the confidence to provide a healthy challenge where appropriate.
  • Calmness and resilience when under pressure, and the ability to proactively identify new or potential risks and respond to emerging priorities.
  • An innovative approach to problem solving, and the skill to bring others on the journey with them and encourage their input.
  • Exceptional communication skills and prowess in effectively communicating ideas, issues, and implications to senior, technical and non - technical audiences.
  • Experience in research methods to inform design choices.
  • Highly experienced in 'design thinking' methods and being able to facilitate with confidence
