About Us

The Big Lottery Fund (the Fund) distributes around £650 million of National Lottery Funding across the UK each year supporting health, educational, environmental, and charitable projects. We are fortunate to be able to support around 12,000 projects each year with grants ranging from as little as £500 to multi million pound programmes. By funding good causes, the Fund makes a real difference to local communities all over England.

The Fund is committed to putting people in the lead – it is our official vision and our top priority. To that end we are taking significant steps to embrace the user-centered, iterative culture of digital development, putting those values and practices at the heart of how we work. As a sign of how seriously we are pursuing this vision, we have created a new multidisciplinary Digital Team mixing design, programming and product management expertise, and we have appointed a specialist digital lead (Tom Steinberg) to the Senior Management Team, in order to head up that team. Our mix of skills and ways of working have been substantially shaped by the Government Digital Service’s Service Design Manual, and by modern digital working practices seen across the world. We are big fans of working in the open, where possible, and you can see our current work on our public GitHub repository at https://github.com/biglotteryfund/blf-alpha

About the role

The Big Lottery Fund receives thousands of applications a year, for projects that seek to benefit millions of people. Handling these is a large scale process of real consequence, and one in which the quality of user experience can make a significant real world impact. In 2017 this means that high quality digital channels are essential for fulfilling our mission.

The role will entail building and iteratively improving user-centered digital services for the Fund, starting with the Big Lottery Fund’s main website. The role is situated within the Digital Team, a brand new part of the organisation that has been set up to give the Big Lottery Fund an in-house capacity to research, design, deliver and iterate high quality digital services. With colleagues, you will have a key role in rebuilding the Fund’s public-facing website from scratch on a new technology base, using a range of agile and user-centred working practices. Whilst this role is primarily about our public-facing services, you may also be asked to assist with the construction or configuration of back-end tools, working to make the lives of our colleagues more efficient and effective.

The Digital Team’s structure and working practices are heavily informed by the Government Digital Service’s Service Design Manual, and by modern, iterative software development practices in general. Work will be arranged in sprints, and run in an agile way, with plenty of user-testing and user-conversations to inform choices.

You will work closely with the Digital Team’s current Senior Developer, jointly working on a range of problems that will span the spectrum from front-end to back-end, from interpreting user research to data processing. You will have major input into choices relating to core technologies that the Fund’s new digital services will be built on, and the many architectural decisions which still remain to be made.

Whilst this role is primarily about serving our customers and stakeholders, it has an important second client: our colleagues. This role is one of a few that will introduce more agile, iterative development approaches to the Fund, and which will involve building more services in-house, and relying more on SaaS systems to help facilitate this task. This represents a somewhat new way of working for the Fund, and so it will be of great importance to work transparently, to engage positively and constructively with colleagues, and to explain why agile, user-centred development practices work as they do.

It is also likely that the Fund will occasionally seek your expertise as it seeks to make the best possible grant making decisions relating to project proposals containing significant digital components.

Person specification

You will be a capable software developer with deep experience in at least one open source framework.
You will bring with you a proven track record of delivering customer-facing digital services that placed user experience and user needs at the heart of their priorities, either as a solo coder or as part of a team.
You will need experience in:
● Building server-side web applications, with detailed knowledge of at least one open source framework e.g. Express.js, Rails, Django
● Front-end web development (HTML/CSS/JS) – formal design training is not required because you will be working with skilled designers
● Working knowledge of Unix-like operating systems such as Linux and/or OSX, especially making cloud hosting services like AWS ready for testing and production deployment
● Building and using test suites
● Contributing to securing digital systems against hacking and intrusions
● Working knowledge of database systems
● Knowledge of modern version control systems
● Ability to research and learn new programming tools and techniques
● Translating technical concepts for a non-technical audience, and working well with non-technical peers

Desirable

The following are not essential, but will strengthen your application:

● Experience presenting work at user groups and conferences
● Understanding of the use of responsive web design
● Experience of working with JavaScript libraries to produce data visualizations
● Being involved in the wider web development community, identifying good practices we can adopt and sharing our experiences

Your primary goal is to ensure Impero’s design work continues to be the award-winning work we are infinitely proud of.

• Lead three projects to win web awards/accolades.
• Lead one project to win a big award.
• Be involved in three pitch wins.
• Ensure team members receive 80% positive feedback in their annual 360° reviews.

The speed read:

This design agency works in the transport sector.

The facts:

The projects that you will be managing are often large and have lots of different stakeholders, such as architects, engineers and other interested parties, not just the client. So you need to be the kind of person who likes detail, logistics and keeping everybody abreast of things as the project progresses.

Day to day, you will work alongside the owner, a project director and graphic designers to produce world-class design for large clients, commercial and or/governmental.

You can put proposals, costings and timelines together and you like documentation to be tidy. You like systems and are rigorous in your approach. You are often one part of a very large and lengthy process and so you need to find and understand your place in this. You will appreciate classic, timeless and solid graphic design. You are comfortable working in 3d and to scale;  you don’t get freaked out by this!

You will be happy to find your own process, work with other peoples and create it where necessary too, but this agency isn’t admin heavy.

This is a hybrid role. You like project management but you also like talking to clients and making sure they are happy, so you can do account management too.

It is important that you are happy to travel once every 5-6 weeks (including long haul). Some of these countries may be in the middle, near or far east. But you like an adventure so you don’t mind.

You’ll be:

– Strong on attention to detail and understand the importance of deadlines.
– Culturally curious. You will work with lots of different nationalities and you enjoy seeing what makes people from different cultures tick
– Generally great to have around
– Self motivated, calm and considered

If you have any languages, that would be good but is not essential at all.

Any experience working in transport or places and spaces will stand you in good stead in this role, but it’s not essential, as long as you are interested in this area.
