About the role

FutureGov is looking for interaction designers to help us on our mission to design public services fit for the digital age. We believe citizens deserve access to user-centred products and services delivered by modern, digitally-enabled organisations. Our team is devoted to the process of creating usable products and experiences that support the delivery of services. Delivering solutions into live public services that improve outcomes for users.

We're looking for people who are confident and have experience of designing user interactions, and detailed user interfaces for public services, including prototyping in code (ideally with experience of working with government design systems).

We’re an inclusive employer, and we care about diversity in our teams. Let us know in your application if you have accessibility requirements during the interview. If you’d like to understand more about inclusion at FutureGov, contact Faith.
