User Experience Designer

It’s an exciting time at The Scouts. Our digital transformation programme is an ambitious part of our Skills for Life strategy which aims to enable Scouts to become a digital first organisation.

We aim to transform the Scouting experience with digital tools and services for our volunteers, staff and young people which are:  Easy, Enlightening, Enabling, Engaging, Enjoyable and Efficient.

Our digital principles underline all our work:  

  • We put people at the heart of everything we do.
  • We are bold and open to change.
  • We create digital first, responsive and accessible services.
  • We use data and insight to drive our decisions.
  • We measure, test and learn.
  • We engage, collaborate and partner.
  • We provide a safe and secure service.
  • Our systems are flexible, sustainable and interoperable.

As our UX Designer you will have experience from discovery stage to finished product, you have a great eye for detail and are confident in your UX expertise. You are able to communicate clearly, translate ideas and prototype ‘just enough’ to validate your work to get you to the next stage. You’ll have skills in designing and delivering user experiences using Lean, Agile and user-centred design methodologies.

This is a unique opportunity to bring your skills, experience and passion for UX to a growing and prestigious organisation. The digital transformation you help to deliver will support over 450,000 young people every week as they gain skills for life through Scouting.
