*Job description*


We're looking for a Digital Designer to join our existing Digital Insight team in London for 6-8 weeks starting in June or July 2019.


You will have the drive to excel as a digital designer and enjoy the challenges and the satisfaction that accompany success. The role will be to assist the Arup Digital Insight team, working closely with our existing team of user researchers, user interface/interaction designers, web developers, and product managers. You will help with an expanding workload and will offer complementary and new skills to growing the area of user-centred design in Arup's London Digital Team.


This is an opportunity to experience a fast-paced and diverse working environment. Arup searches for the highest calibre people and supports and encourages the enhancement of your skills as part of making this a valuable and enjoyable summer placement for you.


*Who is right for this role?*


You may be in your penultimate year of study looking to enter graduate employment in September 2020, or a student/graduate at any stage of your education.


You will be an experienced practitioner in one or more of service design, user experience design, interaction design, technology-led prototyping or equivalent design disciplines.


You should be an innovative problem solver, someone who thinks ‘outside the box' and who is able to communicate ideas and solutions. You should have a positive and forward-thinking approach and enjoy working as part of a friendly and supportive team. Workload will be diverse and the ability to multi-task and manage your workload is important.


An enquiring mind is key to our approach, as we work across numerous diverse contexts. You will be able to assimilate such new contexts rapidly, and to use various design techniques to help make sense of them, for colleagues, clients and collaborators.


We are particularly keen to meet people with an interest in story-telling with data. Experience with data-driven narratives, data visualisation, or similar is desired.


*Benefits of the job*


- Opportunities to work on international projects
- An interesting and varied workload where you'll make a tangible difference to the world
- A collaborative, intelligent and friendly team in an excellent working environment
- A challenging workload that will stretch your mind and make the most of your skills


Arup pays all interns a salary commensurate with experience/education level. Salary range is £10.41 - £11.04 per hour.
