The world's most important corporations, governments and institutions entrust us with their business in more than a hundred countries.

Our Service Design Practice

Mission – A vibrant service practice making tangible the target CIB service experience and prototyping towards it.

Vision – Enabling the CIB business to articulate the end-to-end target service experience, co-create in a coalition of contributors, and design and prototype optimal experiences

Location - small and nimble teams in NY, London and Bournemouth

What we mean by ‘Service Design’ - Service Design utilises Design Thinking, but extends beyond this. Service Design is grounded on two fundamental dimensions:

Horizontal / end-to-end - Intentionally setting-out to understand the full end-to-end target service proposition and service experience of an organisation across all touch-points which a client or internal user client has with JPM

Vertical / full-stack organisational alignment - map and track outside-in from the desired client-experience, including the visible touch-points known and used by the end-client (aka front-stage), to the processes, people, policies, and tools required within the organisation to deliver this service experience (aka back-stage).

Important to us:

  • Please include a link to your portfolio, ideally on your CV. Please note we cannot access file sharing web applications.

Purpose and meaning: helping our organization grow in understanding and use of Design to solve problems and articulate a desirable future.

  • Making and learning: prototyping and testing ideas to help realise a first-class service proposition and service experiences which achieve customer and employee goals in new ways
  • Culture conducive to creativity: cultivating an environment in which creative individuals thrive, while providing opportunities for others to learn more about creativity and design with the support of senior managers

The Role

Service Designers design the end-to-end journey of a service, enabling a user to achieve their goals, and the business deliver an outcome. Their work may involve the creation of, or change to processes, products, and content across both digital and offline channels provided by different areas of the business. Service Designers come from many backgrounds, and we are interested in those who, in addition to being an experienced Service Design practitioner, have depth in one or more of the following areas: Research, Visual Design & Illustration, Prototyping, Business Design and Value Proposition.

Your contribution at JPM

  • With a bagful of activities and tools at-the-ready, backed-up by an understanding of end-to-end user experience and experience of the application of design thinking, you will be able to write service design project proposals, run workshops that bring the user to the centre, defining an optimum service experience
  • The artefacts you produce will include Service Design Blueprints, illustrated Journey maps, and Concept Designs, Service Experience prototypes, Empathy Maps, and Value Proposition Proposals, for the creation and evolution of products and services.
  • Plan, conduct, report-on, and advocate for a variety of research methodologies
  • Partner with other designers from our UX team as well as technologists, product managers, and business teams on the design of our digital services and internal systems
  • Coach colleagues with less experience in Service Design in the tools and tricks of your trade

You are:

Someone who wants to influence your own development. You’re looking for a company where you have the opportunity to pursue your interests across functions and geographies, and where a job title is not considered the final definition of who you are, but the starting point.

  • At least two years of practical end-to-end user experience (UX) or service design experience
  • Academic and applied knowledge in one of the following areas: UX, Research, Visual Design & Illustration, Prototyping, Business Design and Value Proposition.
