. Create and rapidly iterate prototypes to help the wider team learn about user needs for different scenarios or tasks
. Contribute to designing interaction patterns and standards, looking for common features across services
. Contribute to cross-government interaction design patterns
. Play an active part in the department's product design community

Required skills in/experience of:

. Working from a digital perspective
. Sketching, prototyping and iterative design
. Working in a multidisciplinary team
. Using a user-centred design approach
. Explaining design decisions and communicating ideas in a way that other people understand
. Leading workshops
