We’re an established design team but we’re still growing.  We’ve had great success working closely with the squads as well as the wider business, running workshops and guiding design thinking, as well as conducting user research, designing flows, wireframes and prototypes, and shipping new products and services.

In order to continue supporting a growing customer base, we’re looking to grow a design team with a diverse set of skills.

You’re a great fit if you already have experience working in a number of teams delivering digital products and experiences. You have experience across the entire design process, from research, to UX and UI. You’re comfortable running workshops and engaging regularly with colleagues and customers, but you’re just as happy creating wireframes and high fidelity prototypes.

We want people who are constantly developing their knowledge and skills. Somebody who is always looking for a better way to do things. Somebody who can motivate others and who always champions the user.

Key accountabilities:

  • Work as a senior member of a design team
  • Work embedded in a squad, working closely with product owner, scrum master and developers
  • Lead the design process for the team from discovery through to delivery, guiding the work of other designers in the team
  • Create user flows, wireframes and prototypes
  • Plan and run user testing
  • Clearly communicate and present designs to stakeholders
  • Identify assumptions, create hypotheses, and test
  • Run workshops and meet regularly with colleagues, helping the squad build up a shared understanding of our users and their problems
  • Attend twice weekly design critiques to contribute feedback and support other designers, stay up to date with the bigger picture, and get support on their own work
  • Coach and aid the development of more junior designers
  • Contribute to and co-own our Design System
  • Contribute to our Playbook

Maybe you prefer fine tuning interactions, or maybe you prefer running user interviews. We’re looking to build a team with a diverse set of skills – as a senior member of the team we need you to have experience working across all parts of the design process – although it’s fine if you are stronger in some areas than others.

This means you have a good grasp of:

  • UX Research
  • UX Design
  • UI Design
  • Design thinking
  • Working as a senior member of a design team
  • Working in an agile environment, supporting and collaborating with multi disciplinary teams

At Centrica we embrace diversity and actively seek to attract individuals with unique backgrounds and perspectives. To build a more sustainable future, we need the best team – a team with a diverse mix of people and skills, where everyone feels welcome and able to succeed. We are dedicated in helping to close the diversity gap across the technology sector and would love to see more females, people of colour and LGBTQ+ employees, as well as those from a variety of cultures and ethnicity to veterans and the differently abled. Supporting diversity and inclusion is a big part of who we are, we are not looking for people to fit into our culture but to add to it!
