You will be joining frog, frog is a leading global creative consultancy, part of Capgemini Invent.

Joining frog means you’ll be joining the “pond,” a global network of studios, each with a thriving in-person and vibrant virtual culture. As a leading global creative consultancy that is part of Capgemini Invent, frog challenges the status quo to craft and build transformative human experiences that win hearts and move markets. Partnering with passionate leaders and visionary entrepreneurs, we apply creativity, strategy, design and data to re-invent businesses, drive growth and orchestrate customer-centric transformation. Together we strive to shape a regenerative future that is both sustainable and inclusive for businesses, people and planet. Our culture is open, flexible, inclusive and engaging. Working at frog means being empowered to Make Your Mark on every project, in your studio, your community—and the world at large. 

Service Designers are responsible for the design of systems made of people, digital, and physical touchpoints. They orchestrate value exchanges among them in ways that make the system sustainable for both the users and providers. 

About the role

As a Senior Service Designer, you are expected to represent depth in the craft of service design: as an individual contributor, as a mentor and guide for more junior colleagues, and as a contributor to the global community of practice. You will often be the backbone of your projects from beginning to end. You will plan, prioritise, and deliver service design activities autonomously, in the context of interdisciplinary projects. You will lead client conversations within your domain, providing articulate recommendations and helping guide client choices. You will have opportunities to lead small teams on projects and contribute to business development through proposal-writing and pitches.

Your fellow frogs will rely on you to:

  • Drive the design of systemic interventions in complex, multi-partner ecosystems
  • Champion visual frameworks – like journey maps, service blueprints, ecosystem maps – that help bring clarity to complex challenges in human behaviours, relationships, workflow and processes, and drive decision making
  • Drive contribution and alignment from multiple stakeholders, whether clients, third-party or larger ecosystem player
  • Utilise experience prototyping techniques like desktop walkthrough and role playing that help test and validate service components and to convey value propositions
  • Advocate service providers as much as service users

Your job in one paragraph

On a typical project you will:

  • Map existing service ecosystems and service delivery processes
  • Plan, conduct, and synthesise research with existing/potential service users and existing/potential service providers (front and back-end)
  • Identify frameworks best suited to project needs and emerging insights along the service delivery, for front and back-office processes (e.g., customer journeys, service blueprints, ecosystem maps) that include metrics to help monitor service performance through time
  • Orchestrate and lead co-creation workshops with clients, partners, and customers to drive the analysis of current services and the design of improved/new services
  • Frame and consolidate service value propositions for service users and service providers
  • Orchestrate service test sessions using prototyping tools and techniques (digital/physical mock-ups of touchpoints, service scripts, pilot protocols etc.) with users and providers to validate service components and define detailed service requirements
  • Support client organisations in the implementation of new services, co-organising employee trainings using service playbooks and simulations of detailed service processes
