About the role

We’re looking for a Senior UX Designer to join our team. We know job titles vary. So whether you’re a UX Designer, UX Researcher, Interaction Designer or an Information Architect we want to hear from you.

 
Skills Range:

We are looking for the following traits:

  • Evangelising for great design practice throughout the team and wider business.
  • Being able to share the rationale and evidence behind your work in a way our partners understand, so they can feedback constructively.
  • Working closely with stakeholders at varying levels of design maturity.
  • Having patience and empathy with those who aren’t as knowledgeable about contemporary design practice.
  • Confidence to plan and estimate design and discovery phases.
  • Experience working at all stages of the product development process, from conception and discovery through to prototyping, usability testing and delivery.
  • Passion in validating your ideas and concepts in partnership with UI designers, researchers and content designers.
  • Strong history of translating ideas or prototypes into production ready designs, understanding and allowing for the constraints of the user, the business, technology and brand.
  • Confidence to lead, plan and estimate design and research phases.
  • Knowledge and interest of the latest design tools and processes, making us as effective as possible, while knowing how to get the most out of what we’ve got.

You’ll be surrounded by experts from a range of disciplines. They’ll bring fresh perspectives to challenging problems and through a collaborative approach, you can work with them to make our customers lives better.

 
Person Specification:

What we’re looking for:

We’re looking for someone who has been through the UCD process multiple times. Someone who’s seen the challenges it can present (particularly in large organisations) and learnt from it.

We’d also like to see:

  • The story of your work: not only what you did but, more importantly, why you did it
  • Practical experience of applying UCD methods to commercial projects
  • Experience of Agile and Lean approaches to digital product design
  • It’s a bonus if you’re familiar with the world of insurance and comfortable working within Agile teams. We often practice Scrum at RSA Digital. You’d be working closely with the other disciplines that make up our project teams

Senior UX Designers at RSA focus on:

  • Facilitating workshops and discussions.
  • Mapping processes and information architecture.
  • Communicating with key stakeholders and project teams.
  • Planning and running evaluative research approaches (like user testing) and presenting the relevant insight back to the wider business.
  • Planning and running some formative research approaches and demonstrating their benefit to the wider business.
  • Sketching and prototyping concepts using the most appropriate medium.
  • Bringing your experience of all of the above to improve the approach of the Design team.
  • Collaborating with and leading other designers and disciplines.
  • Evangelising user centred design (UCD) and applying this to projects with varying design maturity.
  • Working with Product Managers to estimate and scope projects.
  • Mentoring and helping to develop more junior members of the design team.
  • Promoting a better customer experience at every opportunity.
  • Looking for ways to promote and educate the wider business on the value of design.
  • Building, utilising and helping develop our maturing design system to build better interface experiences for our customers.
