If you enjoy working in a multi-disciplinary team, this role could be for you. You’ll manage a small team of creatives, while also working side by side with UX Designers, Product Owners, Developers and Marketers.

Working collaboratively, you’ll develop and iterate ideas, while balancing the needs of the user with the objectives of the business.

  • You’ll have a good knowledge of UX best practice and understand how people use research to shape ideas
  • You’ll be able to multi-task, often working on your own projects while also giving guidance on projects the wider team are involved in
  • Clarity is everything, so you’ll have an eagle eye when it comes to the detail but also be able to think on your feet and act fast to deliver to deadlines
  • You’ll be able to clearly articulate your design approach and the rationale behind it too
  • As you’re overseeing a team and working across the business, you’ll need great people leadership and mentoring skills

 

Skills we are looking for:

  • Creative design, art direction and management
  • User interface design in XD
  • Image retouching and manipulation in Photoshop
  • Illustration and drawing in Illustrator
  • Editing and animation in After Effects
