We’re looking for a Senior Service Designer to join a brilliant service design consultancy in Bristol. 

What you’ll be doing

You’ll be joining a team of user researchers, UX and service design specialists working in public sector and health to improve the way people experience services. The goal: better experiences for better lives.

Through research-led discoveries you will uncover problems worth solving and use the evidence as a foundation for service design work.

  • Helping the NHS adapt the 111 service around user needs
  • Designing a collaboration platform for DCMS
  • Running extensive user research to help DVSA pass GDS assessment
  • Running user research in job centres across the UK for Policy Lab
  • Partnering with Scope to co-create support services for disabled people

As a Senior Service Designer you’ll be leading on research projects, facilitating workshops with clients and bringing solutions to life through sketching and prototyping.

Working as part of a cross functional team on discoveries and alphas you’ll collaborate with researchers, project managers, developers, product people, clients and agency partners alike.

You’ll be working closely with clients becoming a trusted partner, helping them to understand their users and evolve their services over time.

What experience you’ll need

  • You are familiar with working alongside agile delivery teams (partners)
  • You have strong visual communication skills
  • You are confident choosing the right fidelity at the right phase. This isn’t a UX design role but whiteboards, sketches, storyboards, diagrams and low fidelity clickable prototypes are part of your toolkit
  • You are confident running design research - both discovery and evaluative
  • You are able to work remotely for now and in the future comfortable with two days a week in the Bristol studio
  • You have proven commercial experience in service design and are comfortable leading on design and research projects that tackle complex problems.
  • You have great people skills and stakeholder management experience

There is a bonus scheme, health care scheme, 25 days holiday (+ bank holidays), plus your birthday off, a personal training budget, flexible working options, a pension and being part of a business that you can help shape.
