We are looking for a proficient UX Designer to design accessible public services that are simple enough for everyone to use, creating digital services that work across multiple channels, devices, browsers and platforms.

● work with user researchers and front-end developers to turn concepts into user-centred services
● ensure that the design of services is consistent, both internally and with the rest of GOV.UK
● contribute to cross government interaction design patterns and standards
● contribute to the wider community of designers in government

The ideal candidate will have the following skills:

● have a design related degree, or relevant industry experience
● be able to sketch and prototype on paper and in HTML
● be able to work quickly in an agile environment
● be able to explain ideas in a way that other people understand
● welcome the constructive criticism of their work
● be able to constructively review the work of others
● know how to interpret user research
● have a basic understanding of typography
● know how to design accessible, secure, responsive user interfaces
● understand how form and function work together
