  • Management

We are looking for an experienced organisational designer able drive customer centricity by design in large organisations. An organisational designer has the organisation as the object of design, actively working to align employees, processes and structures around the customer. That implies working with organisational culture, boosting collaboration and alignment, improving (sometimes rethinking) structures and processes, enabling learning and development, and creating a sense of purpose and belonging.

What you'll do:

  • Manage client relationships/accounts, including commercial discussions, using negotiation skills to ensure they and Livework are getting best value at every stage
  • Planning and executing research to understand the organizational environment of our clients
  • Developing new operating models, competency and capability models
  • Developing organisational experiments to help our clients prototype, then scale new ways of working in their organisation
  • Designing internal tools, models, or processes that address strategic and organisational issues and foster new ways of working
  • Shaping Livework’s perspective and practice on organisational design. We’d like you to help us define Livework’s signature approach to change by design within organisations
  • Collaborate with other designers to develop tailored new approaches that include training, project work and capability building
  • Lead or significantly contribute to writing proposals for new business opportunities and promote the Livework brand through networking, writing, speaking and social media
  • Guide, coach, upskill, lead and / or line manage junior staff; always role modeling desired behaviors
  • Ability to be “mentally agile”; to analyze, reframe and think on both a holistic and a detailed level; to think through human and rational lenses, being able to switch between the two, and know when to switch
  • Ability to lead facilitation, and be “on stage” in the context of a client workshop, training or public talk; ability to capture an audience, persuade and inspire
  • Ability to organise one’s own and others’ work efficiently to deliver desired quality and timeliness; ability to juggle tasks and elegantly re-plan when required.

What we’re looking for from you:

  • Understanding design and its value in an organisational context. Able to explain the value of design to non-designers
  • 5 – 7 years of strategic experience structuring and guiding transformative efforts within large organisations
  • Knowledge of the prevailing organisational design theories and capacity to translate, adapt and disrupt theory while bringing it into practice differently depending on the context
  • Capacity to define and articulate clear and compelling organisational strategies and plans that cultivate sustainable capabilities to future proof organisations
  • Great storyteller, able to tell the right story to the right audience in an engaging way. The organisational designer we are looking for is at ease with different types of people, can adapt language and style depending on the audience and is comfortable to work with organisational actors across different levels of seniority – from the board of directors to front line staff and all roles in between
  • Master’s degree in a related field, including but not limited to business administration, organisational psychology, or organisational behavior
  • Availability to travel as requested by project work
