About Us:

From the quirky charms of Covent Garden and Soho to the elegant grandeur of Knightsbridge, Westminster is a borough that brings together the absolute best of London. With over one million people coming to the area every day, we strive to deliver exceptional services to our residents, workers and visitors, so it is imperative that we put our customers needs first - and that is where you come in.

The Role:

We are currently extending and enhancing our digital capabilities across a huge array of services. Within this challenge, you will take a lead in the design of both internal and external facing solutions being delivered by our forward-thinking IT team, ensuring that they truly reflect the needs of the customer. Conducting research into similar products in the same space and comparable industries, you will identify user experiences and turn these into comprehensive insights that will shape your design and prototype concepts. With every decision meeting accessibility standards, you will be able to confidently explain your evidence-led rationale to stakeholders.

About You:

This is a fast-paced challenge that will change on a daily basis. You will therefore have at least three years of user-centric specialist UX experience with a proven knowledge of agile and lean UX environments. With a track-record of designing high-quality interactive experiences, user interfaces and navigation, you will have a comprehensive understanding of Jira, Azure DevOps, Balsamiq, InVision or other design and prototyping tools. A team-player with great communication skills, you will enjoy solving problems and helping us push our capabilities to the next level.

What We Offer:

This is your opportunity to take on a career-defining role in a leading local authority that has an impact greater than its boundaries. Our people are exposed to fascinating challenges that are unique to our organisation, providing the valuable chance to explore your potential in a supportive and friendly team. Against the backdrop of a truly inclusive working environment where every member of the team benefits from plentiful training and development opportunities, a competitive benefits package and a great work/life balance, you are bound to flourish with us.

If you're as productive as you are ambitious and collaborative as you are enterprising, this is your chance to take real ownership of your work, right in the heart of iconic Westminster, a true ‘City for All'. This is a unique place where it all happens. And where it could all happen for you.

As a progressive and innovative organisation, we welcome applications from candidates keen on working in an agile environment with flexible conditions.
