Service Designer

Service Designer

We are looking for a Service Designer to join the Livework London studio. You will have the skills and experience to work with our team designing better services for our clients’ customers.

The successful candidate will be an analytical and creative designer who is able to understand user needs and see the opportunities contained within our clients’ challenges. We expect you to have a strong portfolio of service design projects and be able to talk about your role in them. We’re interested in finding out about your strengths as an individual, but possibly more importantly how you approach working with others – clients and other members of a project team.

What you’ll do:

Undertake customer research:

  • plan, conduct and document interviews
  • support workshop planning and facilitation
  • support “sense-making” and synthesis activities


Support the creation of ideas and take the lead in developing:

  • communicating concepts, journeys, blueprints;
  • support development and testing of prototypes
  • develop high-quality presentations


  • Manage the day to day running of small projects
  • Contribute to writing proposals for new business opportunities and promote the Livework brand through networking and social media
  • Participate in internal improvement initiatives, contributing ideas and owning procedures to improve how we work
  • Develop skills and knowledge relevant to our clients and our business, actively driving self-development and knowledge sharing
  • Understand and utilise Livework methods, tools, approaches, policies and procedures for client work and internal matters


What we’re looking for from you:

  • Fluency in and passion for service design and user-centred design
  • The ability to work both independently and in close co-creation with others; to make decisions when needed and be able to work as part of a diverse team
  • Great interpersonal skills: the ability to develop good working relationships with people, contributing positively to relationships with our clients, and the wellbeing of yourself and other Liveworkers
  • Interest in people and the ability to relate to them with interest and empathy for research purposes; a facility to “get customers to talk”
  • Strong visual skills; able to think visually and create visuals for communication of ideas and prototyping
  • Proficient in various software packages. We use G-suite and Adobe CS primarily but the ability to learn new digital tools quickly or add to our range of skills is a bonus.
  • Ability to be “mentally agile”; to analyse, reframe and think on both a holistic and a detailed level
  • Ability to co-facilitate, and be “on stage” in the context of a client workshop, training or public talk; able to play a role in the planning and delivery of presentations required for these
  • Ability to organise one’s own work efficiently, deliver desired quality and juggle tasks when the situation demands; the ability to plan, effectively execute your own activities within budget, flag, and appropriately escalate risks
  • Ability to recognise when help is needed and to engage the right people in an open and constructive way
  • Previous experience in Project management prior to transitioning to Service Design would be a big plus


You need a non-sponsored visa or a passport allowing you to work in the UK.
