Help us shape the future of banking and insurance for Tesco Customers

At Tesco Bank, we recognise the positive impact that design can have for our customers and are increasingly using it to solve a range of business challenges.

Our propositions and services reach deep into our customers’ lives, their homes and families and to make meaningful change, we believe that you must be inspired by a deep understanding of the people you serve; putting them at the centre of the design process and shaping the intent for change around their needs.

We’re a thriving Design Practice, made up of designers from diverse backgrounds and experiences all driven by a passion for the impact Design can have. In a short space of time, our Design Practice has created real business impact and is being recognised by industry peers across the world. We want to continue building on this and have an exciting opportunity for a  Senior UX Designer.

You will:

  • Take responsibility as part of a project or product team for the success and delivery of experiences, providing design skills, knowledge and expertise to facilitate effective design processes.
  • Use customer research and a detailed understanding of desirable business outcomes to define experience strategies and craft experiences that create meaningful customer outcomes.
  • Work across the project lifecycle and design process, starting with research to shape intent, right up to the delivery of detailed and accessible user interface designs.
  • Manage and collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders from across the business.
  • Be an active member of the Design Practice, helping others to grow and nurture a supportive, inclusive culture.

Your key skills and experience:

  • Experience conducting design research, from creating research plans to running moderated interviews, analysis and synthesis.

  • Practical experience planning, managing and delivering design projects end-to-end.

Help us to expand the diverse experience in the team by also bringing special expertise in at least one of these areas:

  • Flexibility about where you work with the majority of your time working from home and the option to use Design Studios in Edinburgh and Glasgow if you want to.
    Interested? We’re ready and excited to meet you.

We are proud to have an inclusive culture at Tesco Bank where everyone truly feels able to be themselves. At Tesco Bank, we not only celebrate diversity, but recognise the value and opportunity it brings to enable us to help our shoppers manage their money a little better every day. We’re committed to creating a workplace where differences are valued, and make sure that all colleagues are given the same opportunities.

We also know the importance of balancing work with life’s other commitments. Please talk to us at interview about the flexibility you need, and we’ll explore what’s possible.
