Lead Service Designer | Remote/Hybrid | £90,000 – £100,000 & Car allowance | Permanent

Are you a Lead Service Designer looking to work for a company where you‘re valued and appreciated? Somewhere you can really be the best version of yourself?

Our client are incredibly proud to have been recognised by The Times for being one of the Top 50 Employers for Women and they have also adopted a “Flex first” approach and understand that people work best when they are comfortable, so they have a flexible working model that suits their individual needs. Basically, you can work from anywhere you like, whilst still ensuring that you can connect and engage with different teams through some office days, employee networks and virtual events, this an opportunity you can’t miss.

Their Service Designers design the end-to-end experience of their services, bringing service excellence to 7.5 million residential energy customers.

What are they looking for?

Somebody who is an expert at designing services from end to end, this could be from an initial idea, user need or where you have improved any existing services that are underperforming.

Someone who is comfortable working on their own initiative proactively, but you will also receive guidance and support from their Head of Design as part of a wider design community.

They are looking for someone to be responsible for the Service Design function where you will need to set the direction and assure the quality of design delivery across different teams, so you will need to be comfortable leading multiple or highly complex services at any one time.

What will you need?

* Experience in Service Design and Design Thinking is essential.

* Experienced managing and training more junior designers, ideally having managed small teams previously of 2-5 service designers

* Experienced in both facilitation and the application of Design Thinking Methodology – you are able to lead end-to-end collaborative design sessions.

* Experience producing common Service Design artefacts, such as Service Blueprints, user journeys, and personas.

* Ability to organise data into journey / experience maps and service blueprints and translate concepts and ideas into business cases and proposals.

* Data-focused.

What to expect in return?

* £90,000 – £100,000 base + £5k Car Allowance & Potential Bonus

* Employee Energy Allowance

* Pension scheme

* 33 days holiday allowance, inclusive of public holidays.

* Excellent range of flexible benefits, including technology vouchers & travel insurance
