Innovation Lab Lead
12 month FTC – with the potential to extend
Parkinson's UK drives better care, treatments and quality of life. Together we can bring forward the day when no one fears Parkinson's and you could be part of helping us achieve this.
About the role
We’re looking for a creative individual with experience of leading rapid prototyping approaches to come and run our in-house innovation lab.
Ideally from a service design background you’ll love working with users and colleagues from different teams to generate and test ideas, developing them to Alpha stage, and ultimately seeing successful ideas move into a real production cycle.
Skills, knowledge and experience:
The ideal candidate will:
- be self-organising and have a pro-active approach and love to teach others new ways of working and thinking.
- require a solid understanding of technical development and have experience working with developers. If you can write code yourself all the better, but you’ll be working with the in-house prototyping team on delivery.
- probably be a digital person by background but you see lean prototyping as a way to test out almost any idea - from improving fundraising events to redesigning policy documents.
This role is advertised as full time but there is some flexibility around working pattern, and the role could be part time for the right individual.
To apply for this position please visit www.parkinsons.org.uk/jobs and submit a CV and supporting statement.
The supporting statement should detail your suitability for the position based on the criteria of the person specification. It is important that you are able to satisfy each of the stated criteria as this will be used as part of the shortlisting process.
Closing date: 15 October 2017
Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview w/c 23 October 2017
