As a cross-functional team of 50 split across UX, Design, Development and Product/Project Management they design & build cutting-edge digital products & services.
Lately, they have been moving away from traditional platform build & campaign projects to focus on larger programs of work like digital transformations, deliver a wide variety of products across platforms & devices with a focused on creating customer experiences that engage through imagination and innovation.

Following further growth and success within this product team, they are looking to bring on a Lead UI Designer.
It’s great to be able to say that there is a lot of flexibility in terms of how this role will look depending on the candidate that joins. What I mean by this is while there is a focus on well-crafted UI designs, there is scope to be involved in the wider product process if you wish. If you consider yourself more of a hybrid Product (UX/UI) Designer but are happy focusing on the UI and Visual elements then this could still be for you.
Also, there is flexibility between being slightly more hands off and managing the team of 5 UI Designers or being completely hands-on and taking more of a mentorship approach and have the team report to another colleague if this would suit you better.
Either way, you will have the opportunity to work on some huge digital transformation projects as well as smaller product builds for an impressive list of global brands.
