About the role

You'll support our Senior Lead Designer in maintaining design quality across the team, as well as leading the design on your own digital projects. You’ll kick things off with clients and run design workshops in a consultative, authoritative and imaginative way.

Working with a large production team (including Art Directors, Developers and Technical Consultants), the role has an emphasis on creating innovative and clever designs that you’ll champion internally and externally. Using your strong communication skills to lead meetings, you'll present and explain your design rationale and build a great rapport with your clients.

About you

As a Lead Learning Designer, we want someone who has creative fizz as part of their DNA. You’ll need to be an established Designer, bursting with enthusiasm for your own work as well as that of your team.

Writing and editing will come naturally to you. You will have strong analytical skills to help you review, prioritise and design creative learning. Managing your time to enable you to work across multiple projects and balance tight deadlines will also be important.

You will have proven design skills with an ability to identify engaging and effective solutions across a wide range of content, helping our clients to meet their learning objectives.

It would also be desirable if you have an interest in:

  • Current web design principles including UX / UI design, user testing, and designing video for learning
  • Working creatively with a range of software (including the Office 365 suite and eLearning authoring tools)
  • Keeping abreast of the latest technology and current learning trends
  • Good commercial awareness with a strong understanding of the impact your design decisions have on budgets and timelines.

So Why Come And Work With Us?

At Kineo, you’ll be a really valued member of our production team, providing leadership and support to your less-experienced colleagues, as well as working in a culture that encourages and supports your personal development and career progression.

Kineo is a global, award-winning, innovative digital company that provides effective elearning, learning portals and learning management systems (LMSs) to the worldwide corporate market. We support clients all over the world and we’ve got offices in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the US.

As part of the City & Guilds Group we’re now able to offer our clients more than ever before, including integrated learning solutions and accredited blended programmes. As you’ll be working with colleagues from across the Group you’ll be able to expand your field of knowledge even more, and also benefit from the many varied career opportunities that are available.


Kineo is a fun and colourful place to work, with a very familial feel (so we're told). Aside from gaining lots of new friends, you'll benefit from:

  • 25 days' annual leave, plus an additional days' leave with every 2 years' service
  • Generous pension and award-winning benefits scheme including private medical insurance
  • Free fruit delivered to the office and seasonal team outings
  • There's plenty more too, such as life assurance and shopping discounts.

We’re a charitable organisation but that’s not to say we’re not commercially focused. The difference is we don’t have to pay shareholders – we reinvest our profits back into our business so that we can continue to improve learning and skills development. We always have community projects on the go – including getting our hands dirty in community gardening projects or helping feed the homeless.
