What you'll be doing

We're looking for an experienced, talented UI Design Manager to join our expanding Member Service Design & Experience team, providing in-house design expertise and true user-centered design.

You'll also be a natural leader of people; able to coach positive team behaviours and provide assurance and confidence to those you lead.

As well as helping to successfully shape and deliver projects and/or initiatives, you'll work with other UI managers to deliver the structural and cultural ambitions for the UI team. We care about diversity in our leadership team, we want you to join us and feel comfortable sharing your perspectives, background, and richly varied experiences, in the knowledge that you can make a real impact.

About you

In terms of your skills and experience, as a minimum, you'll have:

  • Demonstrable experience researching and crafting design-led experiences in a fast-paced, commercial environment
  • Experience in leading or managing in-house and freelance designers - either agency or client-side
  • Proven experience in successful management and delivery of design elements of medium-to-large projects
  • Demonstrable experience gained ideally in the consumer retail or banking space, with a proven track record of commercially evaluating, scoping and shaping online services and process
  • A strong well rationalised digital design portfolio
  • Exceptional commercial awareness and strategic thinking
  • Experience leading multidisciplinary teams
  • Exceptional influencing skills

We'll need you to focus obsessively on our members: who they are, what they need, and what motivates them. You'll be meticulous about research and data and have extensive experience leading and collaborating with content and UX designers, project managers, techs, and stakeholders to deliver class-leading member experiences.

In this pivotal role, you'll shape the design's role across a wide range of digital projects, supporting and influencing senior stakeholders, and championing visual design across the business. Comfortable leading multiple projects, you'll make sure we get the right design in the right place at the right time.

You'll represent us as a respected SME at events throughout our business, as well as at relevant external events.

A skilled mentor and people manager, you'll share your knowledge and experience in ways that create a positive, sharing culture where your team is continually encouraged to develop their expertise, raise the quality bar, constructively challenge and create.
