Senior User Experience (UX) Designer
We design the BBC’s amazing digital experiences, from apps to websites, from BBC News to CBeebies. We design the ‘behind the scenes’ employee experiences to help make these happen.
In UX&D you’ll get to shape the tools that help people across the BBC unleash their full creative potential. Working together with users and colleagues, you’ll take a holistic, human-centred approach to help create a BBC that’s truly fit for the Internet age.
As a Senior User Experience Designer, you’ll be taking briefs from the Creative Director and/or Head of UX for Internal Systems. You’ll work with designers, architects and researchers to give employees and partners the best possible experiences. That could mean working on enterprise-level finance and HR systems, production tools that let journalists and producers create and publish content online, or even systems for News, Radio and TV broadcasting.
Human-centred design approaches are a fundamental part of how we work. In this role you’ll be applying them in a pragmatic, problem-solving environment. You’ll work closely with those across the BBC who use the systems you create, getting under the skin of the future of content production and ways of working.
You’ll be part of a team of over 100 user experience professionals across the UK with a global audience, great learning and development opportunities, and a chance to step up into line management.

- You do great design work across a range of screens, devices and contexts.
- You make sound judgements in unfamiliar situations.
- You can communicate with people inside and outside the design field.
- You keep track of time, plan your own and other people’s work, and keep people informed in a timely way.
- You embrace change and you’re tuned into new ways of learning and improving.
