The Parallax design department is an essential part of our organisation and works with clients to help them transform through digital innovation. We use design to solve problems, craft engaging experiences and create meaningful and enjoyable digital products, services and websites.
This role is as much about designing as it is about strategic thinking and you have to have both a strong interest in as well as the ability to get under the skin of our customers’ customers to understand how to bring benefits to their experience on a commercial basis.
You will be responsible for developing and managing all aspects of our design and creative output. It’s a leadership role with accountability for all design output and the commercial success of the department.
Your role will be split between executing the UX process and visual design work as well as being responsible for recruiting and managing internal design talent. You must have the vision and drive necessary to develop and lead our design department, both creatively and commercially.
You must have a great eye for modern, beautiful and functional design whilst understanding the UX process and how we can solve problems through research, understanding and implementation.
At least one year of experience in managing people is essential as you will be required to nurture our next generation of visual and UX designers. You will lead designers through the entire design process as well as being a capable designer in your own right.
We are looking for someone with at least 5 years’ experience in design.
You will report to the board of directors and have five direct reports.
Interviews are followed by a trial day at the office (during the COVID-19 outbreak alternative arrangements will be made), where you will be required to showcase your design and thinking capability as well as demonstrate your experience and ability to integrate into our team.
