This position is within our Digital Government ‘pod’, one of our client-focused, mini business units.
The digital government pod is made up of people who want to create better services for citizens, patients, anyone who interacts with public sector services. We do this through providing expertise in user centred design methodologies from strategic service design and digitising paper-based services to driving policy and organisational change through evidence-based decision-making.
We involve users to uncover breakthrough insights and respond through a service design process. We are pragmatic, not dogmatic, in our approach and are outcome-driven.
We’re currently working with the NHS, Department for Health and Social Care and Department for Transport and many others across health, central government and local government with a commitment to providing end-to-end service design to solve whole problems for users. We’re confident in delivering measurable outcomes from before Discovery to after Live through expertise, passion, collaboration and open working.
cxpartners’ mission is to have a positive impact on people’s lives by helping organisations become more customer centric and thrive.
We’re a great place to work – you’ll love the environment, the people and the way the company looks after its staff.
cxpartners is made up of an incredible, diverse range of people. We're an equal opportunity employer and prize diversity as a strength. Our government pod is currently 80% female with 50% of the team bringing a global perspective - and we’re proud of the insight, conversations and experiences this brings us. We’re keen to ensure we’re designing products and services that work for everyone, so our team needs to reflect that too.
We particularly encourage applications from different underrepresented demographics. We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, colour, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability or any other legally protected status.
Please don't be put off applying because you aren't a perfect match for our job description. If you are excited about the opportunity and think you can achieve the outcomes we are looking for, but aren't sure if you tick every box, we'd still love to hear from you.
