Digital content / UX designer
We’re looking for someone who would love to create quality digital training content and join our highly skilled team of instructional learning designers, graphic artists and developers.
We will describe this role in detail below, but first, have a look at what some of your future colleagues think it takes, here’s a verbal montage of what they said when we asked them:
“…can-do person, genuine interest in learning, cares about the job, other people; tech savvy, writing,, attention to detail, indefatigable, tenacious, sees things through, curious and listening, good at analysis and structuring, empathetic and able to decode requirements into human approaches, happy to own the problem, come up with answers, solutions, ideas; great communicator with other disciplines, proactive, copes with pressure and multiple projects, able to handle tight deadlines, looks ahead.”
Is there any of you in any of this?! Then please keep reading!
About the role
In this role you will:
- Lead the learning design on projects from handover from sales to project completion
- Define the overall scope of the digital learning project
- Design an appropriate approach and outline how it meets the client requirements
- Ensure the learning design is suitable for the timescales and budget
- Ensure scripts adhere to the design and scope
- Review releases, client feedback and agree appropriate actions after each milestone
- Work with the client to seek clarification of feedback, advise on any concerns, provide appropriate support and guidance as needed
- Facilitate and lead meetings related to the design approach.
These are the sort of things we usually look for in candidates for this role, but because we’re open to someone with a different sort of background and work experience don’t be put off if you haven’t been doing them all as yet. Maybe the question for you is do you think you have transferable skills and experience you can bring to the role, plus genuine enthusiasm and application?
You’ll have an enthusiasm for all things digital, for UX, for writing, for communicating and collaborating with people from clients to colleagues in a confident and consultative manner.
Perhaps you are a UX designer, an instructional designer, a web copy or blog writer? You can even have a background in scriptwriting, journalism or be a teacher with an interest in writing and digital design. Given that we create training content, some idea of how people learn is desirable although not essential. But you are definitely keen on developing engaging and beautifully structured digital learning content!
Maybe the question for you is do you think you have transferable skills and experience you can bring to the role plus genuine enthusiasm and application? What do you reckon?
