Service Design Lead

We’re more than digital. We’re improving lives.


To give our communities excellent services, we need to ensure their interactions with us are frictionless and efficient. You’ll help us to design our services around our users’ needs, using research and analysis, taking a user-centric approach to everything we do.

This is a critical role where you’ll lead multi-disciplinary teams to research and redesign services. You’ll begin by building an in-depth understanding of users’ needs, bringing together talent to create smart design concepts. You’ll also look for ways to reduce costs, improve existing services and use advanced technology to transform the user experience. Your insight and knowledge won’t just help our team – they’ll directly benefit Hounslow’s residents.

Day to day you’ll be iterating new solutions, running pilots and creating a supportive environment for your team. You’ll therefore need experience in a similar role, gained in a local government setting. With this background, you’ll know about the technical side of design as well as the visual. You’ll be willing to roll your sleeves up and do user-centred design work if needed. What’s more, you’ll inspire teams to perform at their best as a capable IT leader. In return for your skills, we can offer the chance to be part of an inclusive team, within an incredible borough. Hounslow has green spaces, unique history, cosmopolitan hubs and fantastic transport links – in short, it’s unlike anywhere else. At the heart of all this is our council, offering flexible working, career development and a whole range of generous benefits.  


Join us at the forefront of innovation and use your skills to make a positive impact.   


Although we are currently working remotely, it is important that you are able to travel to Hounslow when required after restrictions are lifted.

You must be eligible to work in the UK.

Closing date for applications: 23:59 on Sunday 21st March 2021.
