Terms:  Full Time/ Fixed Term/ 12 Month Contract with potential for extension

Salary:  Grade D (£30,693 to £36,110 per annum) + London weighting of £3,285 per annum if applicable

Location: Due to Covid-19, this is initially an agile role so you can be based anywhere in the UK. As we start to re-open our offices for staff, you are welcome to use one of the UnLtd office hubs in London, Bradford or Birmingham, or a satellite office in Scotland or Northern Ireland. We welcome applications from anywhere across the UK and are open to discuss flexible working, including working from home.

About the role

You will be passionate about inclusive design and skilled at simplifying learning content for impact and accessibility. You may have some experience of using different research methods to inform your work but more importantly, you enjoy connecting with people, understanding the barriers they may face and working to improve their experiences through your work.   

As a mid-level designer at UnLtd, you will use multiple forms of research and stakeholder participation to design our learning content for social entrepreneurs and supporting our end-to-end user experience. The focus of your work will be on project delivery in complex and demanding environments where you will need to balance the needs of users with business or organisational constraints. You will actively manage the content curation for aspects of our support offer (such as social impact measurement, inclusive practice and routes to market) helping us to deliver against our goal for continuous improvement of our support offer for social entrepreneurs.

You will be comfortable working across teams to identify the best methods of delivering support, professionalising and/or pooling the content together into useable tools and materials for our teams to deliver.

 Please see the Job Description on our website.
