As a Senior Service Designer, You Will

Provide service design leadership direction and contribute more widely to the future of service design across government

Prioritise understanding the needs and actual behaviour of users and help teams use this insight to underpin and drive the work they do

Mentor colleagues to think through, communicate and help people understand how things could be, using facilitation skills, sketches, scenarios and diagrams such as maps, blueprints and prototypes

Set the direction for future service experiences by developing and landing the overall Service Design strategy, including high-level concepts and robust value propositions

Design accessible digital services, coaching colleagues to develop these skills

Analyse demand and failure within a service, identify root causes for that failure, frame problems, identify desired outcomes and key measures – and provide leadership for others to replicate

Lead discussions at a senior departmental level and successfully coordinate change (e.g. operational, organisational, policy, financial or technology) to support the delivery of better services

Identify and develop service patterns for use across the department

Understand the existing supporting system of a service and design targeted improvements to that system to accommodate the new service – both digital and process based

Develop prototypes using appropriate techniques and methods, and iterate them in response to fast user feedback

As a Service Designer, the role involves working with multidisciplinary teams, alongside researchers, developers, data analysts, policy experts and others to deliver good, user-centred public and behind-the-scenes services.

We work on really important services. Things like reducing workload and stress for teachers, making sure children in care get the best opportunities in life and helping adults get the skills they need for the future economy.

You’ll be working with people who value user research and design and crafting work you feel proud of!
