What we’re looking for

As an Interaction Designer you’ll be expected to ensure quality, innovation, creativity and accessibility in all aspects of user interaction. As part of an agile product delivery you’ll be designing services that work for a wide range of people.

You’ll be working closely with user researchers, service designers, UI and content designers and have experience in creating simplicity within complex user journeys where iterative design is key to our solutions. In addition, you’ll understand GDS/GOV UK design principles, ensuring that elements such as accessibility are built into your designs from the outset. Your work will require collaboration as part of a multi-disciplinary team to deliver user focussed and successful services that go beyond the screen.

What you’ll bring

You are skilled in creating, improving, and managing high-quality, user-centred designs for both digital and non-digital products and touchpoints, and effectively use analytics and user insights to evaluate and improve user interfaces and interactions. You understand how to make complex processes and services easy to understand and use, and you design accessible and inclusive products and services that address health and social inequalities, and change attitudes and behaviours.

With experience in working in a fast paced environment and using lean-centred design methods, you understand best practices in interaction design, and the ability to embed them into an agile workflow to deliver timely outputs, adapting as needed to changing priorities and deadlines. Great negotiation and effective stakeholder management is a pre-requisite and previous experience of interaction design work within a government or health setting using GDS/GOV UK design patterns and systems is also preferred.
