You and your role
With a solid knowledge and understanding of user needs and business/policy goals, you will visualise whole services, both end to end and front to back, across business areas and departments in order to reduce or remove issues and problems.

You’ll be driving awareness of service performance and improvement needs resulting in successful service outcomes.

Leading a small team of service designers and working effectively with senior stakeholders, you will establish service design methods, consistently take the lead at workshops and use design patterns to support strategy and decision making across the entire business area.

Supporting the service design community by organising or taking part in meet-ups to share work openly will be key in the role, as well as ensuring all are aware of your definition of good practices to always be working towards solving any issues for users.
