About the role:
We are looking for a talented UI Designer to work on a business-critical project within our English Language Teaching (ELT) group for a period of 3-4 months, possibly longer.
We are constantly developing new products to support and optimise the experience of hundreds of thousands of learners across the world. In this role it will be your responsibility to bring a considered, compelling and unified approach to the design of our digital experience. This can include print, web, apps, mobile and online learning platforms.
Working in an agile and efficient way, your role will encompass the full design cycle from specifications and style guides to testing and prototypes. You will work with teams from our technology and digital teams to explain the requirements and oversee implementation. You will actively seek feedback from key stakeholders to improve the design function, visual interface and user experience.
To succeed in this role you will be a great team player since you will be interacting with many stakeholders in Cambridge and across our global business, to include developers, copywriters and UX Designers. You need to be fully experienced in applying user centred methodologies to a full spectrum of product delivery.
You will be able to create, improve and use visual designs, prototypes, style guides, user flows and effectively communicate your ideas.
Our global not-for-profit organisation is committed to the advancement of knowledge worldwide through our exciting publishing programme. You will be joining a diverse and collaborative workforce and you will be supported in your career ambitions to achieve your potential.
Help us achieve our mission, and you will have a career that is not only hugely satisfying but brings with it great benefits and a stimulating, supportive and flexible working environment.
