You will undertake all duties with due regard to the provisions of health and safety regulations and legislation, Data Protection/GDPR, the Council’s Equal Opportunities and Customer Care policies.
You will understand service design principles, practices and methods and product development methodology, frameworks and principles and where product design plays a practical role in solving problems and achieving outcomes.
You will be integral to the design process of new and existing products and services from start to finish, brainstorming solutions to current pain points, take input from stakeholders, act as a liaison between analysts, developers, and researchers, and help compose mock-ups through wireframes and prototypes, taking pride in the detail of a final design as well as the results that the overall design achieves.
