As the Mobile & Digital Experience (M&DE) team, we’re specialists, who define and create member-focused experiences across all digital products. Every day, more than 100 design, technology and delivery experts collaborate on our most complex digital challenges. The single purpose is to make things simpler, more convenient and more efficient for our members.
You'll be a Content Designer who’ll focus obsessively on our members: who they are, what they need and what motivates them. We need someone who is forensic about data and evidence. And has experience collaborating with visual and experience designers, project managers, techs and stakeholders to create class-leading member experiences. You'll work closely with the Content Design Manager and Senior Content Designer in shaping content’s role across a wide range of digital projects. It goes without saying, this means getting the right content in the right place at the right time. You’ll also know how and when to stand up for what’s right – in ways that keep everyone on the same page!
In support of our digital ambition, we've opened an Experience Design Studio in Bristol – Designed to support collaborative working and true user-centred design, we’re building one of the best in-house spaces in the southwest. Its sole purpose is to better understand people’s needs, so we can design industry-leading experiences for our customers, members and colleagues.
So, there's never been a better time to join us...
Who we're looking for
We need a Content Designer who’ll focus obsessively on our members: who they are, what they need and what motivates them. We need someone who understands the importance of research, data and evidence. And, ideally, has experience collaborating with visual and experience designers, project managers, techs and stakeholders to create effective member experiences.
This won’t be your first content design role, but it’ll probably be your biggest step up!
At the very least, you’ll need...
• Demonstrable experience designing content-led experiences in fast-paced, commercial environments (Agency or in-house)
• A solid record of delivering excellent writing, demonstrated through your portfolio
• Good commercial awareness, strategic thinking and an ability to deliver customer-focused content
• Ability to work within multidisciplinary teams, as well as on your own
• Strong influencing skills
What you'll be doing
Research, data, insight, writing, testing. You’ll do it all. Our stakeholders and your Studio colleagues will look to you to bring outstanding digital writing to the fore. You’ll champion best practice at every stage of a project. You’ll defend what’s right, not what’s easy. You’ll assist and encourage other project stakeholders to follow our content processes. And above all, you’ll put our members first.
The extras you'll get
If you put a lot in, it’s only fair you should get a lot out. So if you help us do the right thing for our customers, we’ll help further your career at Nationwide. As well as your salary, there’s life assurance, a pension and a recognition and rewards scheme. We think it’s a great place to work, and we’re not afraid of giving you praise when you’ve done well.
