Senior UX Designer - maternity cover

UX and Service Design agency

This is a great opportunity to work with a boutique agency with big name clients, specialising in UX and Service Design. The role is to cover someone on maternity leave for up to 12 months (fixed term contract - pro rata salary), but has the potential to evolve into a full-time permanent position also.

The client

An established and award winning digital experience design agency that has Design, UX and Service Design at the heart of what they do.

They have a very close-knit team of strategists, service designers, user experience experts and communicators who collaborate with global brands and start-ups across sectors to create innovative, future-ready experiences, which connect people to services across all digital channels.

The role

The role is a great opportunity to get involved in Service Design projects as well as UX ones, even if you don’t have existing Service Design experience (although any would be a bonus). The role is based on a FTC maternity cover of 12 months but with real potential to evolve into full time. You will play a hugely important part in their team and further growth of the business.

You will work primarily with other UX designers, UI designers and Service Designers as well as building strong relationships with the agency’s clients to help drive innovative solutions forward through exceptional design and problem solving. In turn, generating transformational value by looking at the whole service to unearth market, people and technology insights to create digital experiences that mix hard commercial reality, people-focused insights and technical opportunities.


The candidate

  • Senior experience designer with leadership capability
  • Support planning / Facilitating workshops
  • Hands on UX design deliverables (UI is a bonus! Same goes for any Service Design experience)
  • Support the creation of strategic deliverables and presentations
  • Support experience assessment, conduct user research, usability testing, customer journey mapping, business process mapping, trend, market and technology analysis and content audits
  • Collaborate with the team to transform opportunities into experience visions, roadmaps, digital strategies and service blueprints
  • Capable to present and sell in experience process and solutions internally and externally, from supporting pitches to project presentations


Even though this would start off as a fixed term contract, you would also be eligible for some great company benefits, which include things like private healthcare and pension.
