Inclusive Design Lead

Countries: Nigeria, Senegal
Organization: Sightsavers
Closing date: 22 May 2022

Sightsavers is looking for an Inclusive Design Lead – a new role within our expanding design-led team.

Salary: Local Terms and Conditions Apply

Contract: Two Year Fixed Term Contract

Hours: This is a full-time role with some flexibility around hours worked and some home working

About the role

We’re looking for our first inclusive design lead to co-create and prototype design solutions for a variety of global health and inclusion challenges. This is a varied role, encompassing behaviour change and product development projects across neglected tropical diseases, disability inclusion and eye health programmes, and also influencing partner approaches to design and accessibility.

We’re looking for someone with proven knowledge of inclusive design tools and methodologies, but are open to the professional background candidates may have. The role could equally suit a service designer, product designer, or a visual communications or digital all rounder. Aptitude and attitude are more important than niche experience.

Whatever your background, you’ll have the winning combination of empathy, clarity and creativity that make for excellent design. You’ll get as much satisfaction from running a co-creation workshop as you do from making the creative leap from a scrappy design brief and a blank sheet of paper or an empty room to a life-changing design solution. In return you’ll be supported by a committed, inclusive and talented inhouse team with a broad range of skills to help your solutions become realities.

The job can be based predominantly remotely, but it’s expected international travel to Sightsavers programmes will be required.

If this description piques your interest and you feel you have the right skills and aptitude to thrive in a role like this, we’d love to hear from you. Key duties will include:

  • Working consultatively with colleagues across the organisation, especially teams looking to bring the benefits of design thinking and inclusive design to their projects.
  • Using design thinking techniques (eg Double Diamond model) to help project teams establish clear design briefs and to understand the challenges at hand, considering global, national and local barriers and enablers, and gaining direct insight from those who will make use of new services and products.
  • Working with the design researcher and project teams to detail design research needs for projects (eg interviews, observations, asking and listening, cocreation); then work with them to deliver these and be the design lead for the process (leading on the making and testing of prototypes, and the creation of final designs and outputs).
  • Working as an integral part of the web, design and branding team to develop Sightsavers’ design communications, ensuring they are powerful, usable and adhere to accessibility standards.
  • Working with colleagues across the organisation, including our technical leads and global programme staff, especially our behaviour change and web, design and branding teams, to grow understanding and ensure increased implementation of inclusive design and design thinking practice.

  • Approaching design with an open, audience-first mindset and use inclusive design tools and techniques to create new products and services and improve existing ones.

  • Designing tools, services, products and project assets as required by the design brief.

  • Working with colleagues in the web, design and branding and technical teams to support and formalise the design process to be used within projects

  • Using qualitative and quantitative data to inform decision-making and make sure the design process is properly documented.

  • Coaching colleagues in inclusive design techniques.

  • Working with production staff to clearly brief design requirements for larger projects into team (eg digital or editorial design)
