Are you a creative person who loves solving strategic problems, getting stuff done and delivering innovative and important outcomes for a diverse range of ambitious clients?
We are looking for someone who is passionate about strategy and design thinking – someone who have seen the light and is keen to do strategy differently.
Working with SPARCK means that you’ll get involved with many different projects and activities; from strategy through to product & service design, research, workshop facilitation, business development and innovation projects.
What you may get involved in..
- Helping a large bank designing and launching a new AI powered service for businesses to manage their money.
- Helping the NHS researching and designing a new national app, as well as several other core digital health services.
- Re-designing critical reporting and management tools for the UK’s largest payments services company.
- Exploring the future of travel and the role of digital services across end-to-end journeys for a major national logistics firm.
- Helping Amnesty unearth opportunities to improve how they identify and take action on human rights offences.
- Run co-creation and innovation workshops to generate break-through ideas and concepts for leading teams in health, finance, retail, energy and government.
- Helping a growing range of clients explore and apply cutting edge technologies such as AI, IoT and AR/VR.
In short, you will work collaboratively with our broad range of clients and help them unlock new value by (re-)designing their business models, the way they work, their products, services, strategies and innovation approaches.
We would like you to bring..
- Thorough knowledge of design thinking and user centred design – applied to strategy for large corporates.
- An ability to understand and make sense of complex business processes and structure content in clear ways.
- Confidence in complex and ambiguous situations, and an ability to find constructive ways forward.
- Experience scoping, planning and leading activities from writing proposals through to managing client relationships and enabling successful project delivery.
- Confidence and experience running engaging and creative workshops with people at all levels of the organisation.
- Hands-on experience conducting user research and testing prototypes with end-users.
- An ability to analyse user insights, market data and global trends – and turning them into great ideas, concepts and solutions.
- Experience sketching ideas, making wireframes and creating prototypes on paper and using digital tools.
- A great sense of aesthetics and how to tell a story visually. An ability to make beautiful and clear digital artefacts is essential.
- A naturally collaborative and curious mind, that strives to help others shine and the team to deliver amazing things.
You could be a strategist, designer, a consultant or work in an in-house team. For us, it’s not just about having the right kind of professional experience, it’s as much about having a positive attitude, lots of curiosity and an ability to pick things up quickly.
