To do this, we create online training courses that help customers across a wide-range of subjects and sectors. Having trained over a million people, we’re always looking to create new ways of engaging with our learners, and we’re looking forward to training the next million.

Your role in the team

As a Web Designer at High Speed Training you’ll be responsible for working with our Product Owners to help bring our vision to life. We are all about our learners, so you will be creating and developing elegant, easy-to-use and innovative solutions that will help drive levels of customer engagement and satisfaction.

You’ll be part of an Agile squad working with colleagues from Commercial, Marketing, Content and Technical. You will be designing and building interactive prototypes to solve challenging problems. Validated Learning is really fundamental to how we build great products, and you’ll be working as a team to build tests, measure their success, and learn from the outcomes.

  • Work alongside other researchers, designers, developers and Product Owners to create high-fidelity designs from tested prototypes.
  • Ability to explain design decisions to stakeholders using an understanding of UX processes.
  • Ability to understand data and customer insight to support choices.
  • Work in a sprint cadence and be able to accurately predict complexity of work undertaken.
  • Work with developers in your squad to build designs and ensure they are correctly tested and implemented.
  • Be consistent and on brand in design ensuring the design pattern library is always followed when possible.
  • Have a strong sense of modern design culture and agile methodologies.
  • Measure success using data, analytics, conversion rates and qualitative feedback.

What we’re looking for

  • Some Experience as a Web Designer.
  • You will have a grasp of UX best practices & design trends, and an engaging portfolio to back it up.
  • Strong Adobe Creative Suite skills (Photoshop, Illustrator).
  • Wireframe (low and high fidelity) and prototyping skills using tools such as Sketch, Marvel, XD and Invision.
  • Working knowledge of Web Design, HTML and CSS.
  • Working knowledge of modern multi-device design principles.
  • You enjoy being challenged and solving problems is something that comes naturally.
  • You can communicate clearly about your designs and advocate your opinions.

Our people are at the heart of our business and we offer a great environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you'll need to be your best self. It's not just our colleagues we look after - we've got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard to ensure our mission is at the forefront of what we do.

We'll welcome you on-board with 24 days holiday (plus 8 bank holidays), free life insurance (which covers 4-times your salary), private medical insurance for you and your family, an attractive pension package to help you save plenty, a great annual bonus scheme, the latest mobile phone and contract (that’s on us!), and a staff benefits scheme (with over 250 discounts and offers available). Plus, a 12% discount on Annual M-Cards will save you money getting to work and getting around the area. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you'll be able to benefit from our Cycle to Work scheme.

We also hold regular social events, setup by our own activity committee, so everything from escape rooms, meals out, bowling, cocktail making and much more have been organised.
