  • Ability to execute tactical design projects, using a range of methodologies, to generate useful insights and implementable services.
  • Excellent analytical skills, with the ability to think creatively and pragmatically and identify solutions, including the ability to adapt flexibly to different areas of service delivery or advice content, and provide constructive challenge in unfamiliar areas.
  • Excellent written and oral communication and influencing skills, including the ability to communicate strategic insights and design outcomes to diverse audiences.
  • Experience of working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, and commitment to working within an inventive, responsible and generous workplace environment.
  • Commitment to maintaining a positive working environment in which equality and diversity are well managed, dignity at work is upheld and staff are empowered and motivated to achieve good outcomes.

Desirable experience:

  • Experience designing digital and face to face services, especially those with complex user journeys.
