Greater London Permanent £60000.00 - £70000.00 per annum

My client is a global digital strategy & design studio with expertise across business strategy, experience design, UX/UI design and development with offices in London, Seattle, Hong Kong and Tokyo. They’re a friendly, driven and rapidly growing team with a passion for making the complex simple, building significant brand and commercial benefit for their clients and creating deep engagement with customers.

They look for those who are smart, curious, humble and fun. They have in common a strong empathy for the human condition, critical thinking, business acumen, entrepreneurial spirit and a love for solving the most meaningful problems through design. They work best with people who have the ability to listen, to see value in other opinions and who enjoy constant collaboration.

The role

Are you a consultant with a passion for design? Then this is the job for you. Senior Business Strategists are one part strategy consultant and one part business designer. My client is on the hunt for a driven, self-starting individual to take on a key role in their UK Business Strategy practice supporting their global client base across a variety of projects and emerging opportunities.

They work closely with design and development and many functions within their clients’ businesses to ensure that from research, to prototype and launch, they develop actionable, practical concepts which deliver real business value and customer impact. They ask the questions a business would want answered about a new product or service – the customer value, size of the market, competition, pricing, behavioural economics, technology infrastructure, business impact, investment required and time to scale.

As a senior member of their team, the right candidate will also be given the opportunity to help drive and shape the nature of the work conducted in the practice, the team who will support it, and the clients with which they work.
