Lead UX UI Designer 

As a Barclays Lead UX UI Designer, you will be working for our Barclays Private Bank and Wealth Management business which enables us to assist our clients in growing their wealth responsibly and at each stage of their personal financial journey. We are currently on an exciting journey to transform how we develop scalable, resilient and efficient, platforms, simplifying, and creating capacity to reinvest for growth and client experience.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, established in 1690, with a legacy of success, quality, and innovation. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

At Barclays, we offer a hybrid working experience that blends the positives of working alongside colleagues at our onsite locations, together with working from home. We have a structured approach where colleagues work at an onsite location on fixed, ‘anchor’, days of the week, for a minimum of two days a week or more, as set by the business area (or nearest equivalent if working part-time hours). Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager. Please note that as we continue to embed our hybrid working environment, we remain in a test and learn phase, which means that working arrangements may be subject to change on reasonable notice to ensure we meet the needs of our business.

What will you be doing?

•    Conducting user research via interviews, surveys, and usability testing to gather insights and understand user needs 
•    Creating visual representations of user journeys and map out the product's layout and functionality to illustrate the user flow and interactions via wireframing and prototyping 
•    Developing high-fidelity mock-ups and information visualisation while ensuring the visual elements align with the brand and enhance the overall user experience
•    Working closely with cross-functional teams to implement design solutions and address usability challenges
•    Ensuring designs are responsive and adaptable across various devices and screen sizes, and integrate accessibility principles to make products equitable for all
•    Working with the Design director to develop and maintain design systems to create consistency in visual elements across different parts of a product or multiple products

What we’re looking for:

•    Excellent portfolio showcasing previous design projects, demonstrating skills in wireframing, prototyping, and a variety of design tools
•    A deep knowledge and execution of Human Centred Design methodologies
•    Proficiency in design tools such as Figma, Sketch, InVision and Adobe Suite
•    Experience with user research methodologies, usability testing, and the ability to translate findings into design improvements

Skills that will help you in the role:

•    Experience working as a UX/ UI Designer with an in-house Design team or at a Design agency
•    Experience working with the Agile change methodology

Where will you be working?

Our new state-of-the-art Campus, right in the heart of Glasgow is a hub of creative collaboration. A place where everyone can bring their true selves to work and reach their full potential. Home to 5,000 of our colleagues, our Tradeston campus will support the community in more ways than one - by creating thousands of new career opportunities and celebrating local artists. A short walk from Central Station on the south of the Clyde, it will be a key location for the Barclays business that will deepen our ties with the city and its communities.
