Service Designer

Full Time

Our Future Health UK

As a Service Designer, you are responsible for supporting the design of the UK’s largest ever health research programme. Working with cross-functional teams across Our Future Health, you’ll be a major part of the design of one or more services, from mapping to researching to design and implementation. You’ll also be a part of shaping how we work as multi-disciplinary teams, contributing to our design ethos and approach.

Your focus:

  • Design of public, researcher, and internal-facing services of Our Future Health
  • Understand the varying and conflicting needs of your users and apply them across each stage of the service journey
  • Integrate considerations for back-end systems in how they affect the users’ experience
  • Map the various user, front-stage and backstage actions to both design and understand the feedback and recontact programmes
  • Help develop, maintain, and implement service design tooling and methodologies for use across the org
  • Where appropriate, apply accessibility and inclusivity standards, working to increase inclusivity in the services you work on
  • Implement new ways of working within multi-disciplinary teams and advocate for design and user-centricity throughout the process
  • Contribute to and help shape design culture at Our Future Health

What you won’t be doing:

  • Working in a siloed environment with no freedom to make decisions
  • Working in a place where you can’t see the impact your expertise makes
