My client is a strategy-led digital agency.

They combine design thinking methodology with digital expertise to help businesses design, market and deliver compelling customer experiences.
They are growing, they are award winning and have a progressive culture that encourages individuals to take initiative for the good of their own development, the wider team and the clients and markets they serve.
They build teams of talented people who balance idealism and pragmatism, striving for outstanding results that are commercially viable.
Be part of a driven team
As an agency led by design thinking, the design team play a crucial role in the deliverables and direction of the agency.

They are a small team, but they punch above their weight to deliver quality design strategy and production.

Either working smartly together, or in fast paced agile teams across the agency.
They are excited to welcome a new design champion into the mix.

As the most senior experience designer in the team, they are looking for someone who is scary awesome.

We want to be challenged, inspired, and led confidently by their driven attitude and wealth of experience in the discipline.

The role

Their experience design team needs a champion.

Striving to deliver the optimal experience for all stakeholders, within a commercially viable budget and timeframe.
As a small team, they are hunting for someone who is comfortable both planning and presenting the experience strategy, and getting stuck in to executing it.

This means someone who can command a room of clients, engage research participants, mentor and nurture others, and fully participate in agile delivery teams.
