People Source Consulting have an exciting role for a Senior Interaction Designer in Leeds (although all work is remote at the moment and they expect it will be for the duration of the contract)

The contract is 6 months and paying up to ??575pd inside IR35

You'll work alongside other designers, Front End developers, researchers and software engineers. You'll deliver world-class services designed for the people who use them, in line with the government's Digital Service Standard.

Interaction designers design accessible public services simple enough for everyone to use. They create digital services that work across different channels, devices, browsers and platforms. This role may involve the creation of or change to design patterns which are being researched in services.

As a senior interaction designer you will:
- specialise in designing interactions and interfaces for digital services
- work on all levels of the service, from high-level flows and journeys to the fine detail of individual parts
- work with different types of content and user-led interactions
- work across digital and non-digital channels

As a senior interaction designer you will:
- understand user needs and design services that meet them
- manage other people's work
- help promote best practice
- share your specialist knowledge and experience with others in the team
- support discussions at a senior departmental level
- share work and ideas inside and outside the department, for example by representing the DWP Digital design community at events
- design user-centred interfaces and transaction flows
- define elements - layout, design patterns, controls and actions
- define visual priorities - what needs to be obvious, what needs to be easy, and what needs to be made possible
- create and rapidly iterate prototypes to help the wider team learn about user needs for different scenarios or tasks
- work with product owners, other designers, user researchers, business analysts, and Front End developers to turn concepts into user-centred services
- make sure that the design of services is consistent internally and with the rest of GOV.UK
- contribute to designing interaction patterns and standards, looking for common features across services
- contribute to cross-government interaction design patterns
- take responsibility for creating and keeping up a positive and collaborative working environment
- contribute to building a digital culture in the department
- play an active part in the department's product design community
