Returner – Content Designer – Telford
At Capgemini UK we recognise that the transition from an extended career break back into the workplace can be challenging. This is why 2017 saw us launch our Return@Capgemini Programme to bring talented professionals in to our organisation.
The Return@Capgemini Programme offers a paid placement of 6 months, with the possibility of a permanent role at the end of the programme, to talented professionals that have been on a career break for 2 or more years.
The programme will provide;
- Meaningful experience
- Individual development programme
- Mentoring and coaching support
- Access to a community of others in the same situation.
What you’ll do
Content Designers are responsible for writing the content for HMRC’s digital services. They work with UX/UI designers, user-researchers, software developers, business analysts, subject matter experts, policy and legal teams to produce content that:
- is user-focussed
- written in plain English
- meets GDS standards
- Research of subject
- Discussion with stakeholders and experts
- Initial drafts of content to fit with UX design
- Collaborating with user-researchers to test customer understanding
- Iterating content based on customer feedback
- the look and feel of the service design in collaboration with UX/UI designer
- the customer journey through the service and between the service and static content
To do the job successfully the ideal candidate must be able to:
- take complex language and processes and make them simple to understand
- write for the web, with the ability to create content that is accessible and usable
- write for user-centred design
- use metrics and user feedback to define/refine content
- choose the best format for displaying information to the user
You love the written word and understand how its use influences the actions people take. You’re adept at writing to business tone of voice and standards, but always with the reader uppermost in your mind. You’re an advocate for plain English, unafraid to challenge when necessary, sometimes to HMRCs most senior leaders.
You understand that you represent the customer and their needs. You’re great at building and maintaining strong working relationships with your customers and peers. You’re sought out for your professional advice.
Enthusiasm, energy, commitment and resilience are needed in spades. You’re a self-starter who takes responsibility for your career, maximising offerings such as BCS membership. You gladly look beyond the confines of HMRC to influence and seek advice from the wider Design community. For example by being involved in Content Clinics, Content Conferences, UX Days and online activities such as discussion forums and blogs.
You are excited by new technologies and explore how they could benefit HMRC and the wider Content Community across Government. You’re a role model, proactively offering “something back” to develop others. As well as having a flair for seeing the big picture, you will be organised and disciplined in the use of departmental systems and processes.
You grab training opportunities when they arrive and enthusiastically share your learning with peers. You’re not afraid to admit when you don’t understand something or have got it wrong and will do what you can to correct misunderstanding or mistakes.
You’re able to accept feedback on your performance in a constructive way, using it as an opportunity to understand how to develop your skills. Equally you’re happy to provide constructive feedback on the performance of others and challenge inappropriate behaviours when necessary.
You’re happy to work alone, but are at heart a team-player able to contribute successfully to the goals not only of your own team, but also those of Delivery Centre and HMRC.
