Senior UX Designer for Large Charity -- Charities Aid Foundation
We’re looking for a brilliant UX designer to design our next generation of products for charities and the donors who give to them. Every year our donors give more than £400m to 40,000 charities and with your help they can give even more.
We are the biggest charity you’ve never heard of. Our mission is to grow giving in the UK to increase the impact of all charities. Our products range from Give As You Earn, through which more than 400,000 people give directly from their salary, to CAF Bank which provides current and savings accounts to more than 18,000 charities.
If you a natural UX designer who thrives on variety, looking to make your mark, loves taking the best of the new and are out to make a big positive impact, you could be who we are looking for.
Up until now we’ve always had our design work done by agencies, but now we’re looking to develop our capability in-house and are looking for the person to centre it on. We want the consistency, flexibility and agility from developing UX as part of our developments. We’re at the start of a big change in how we service customers, moving from manual paper processes to digital, self service. We see design as a key part of this.
