This project is an Accelerated Knowledge Transfer (AKT) partnership between the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at London’s Royal College of Art and the Inclusive Design, Experience Innovation and Design Assurance teams at Lloyds Banking Group. The project aims to innovate a framework that promotes financial inclusion through an examination of the internal structures, processes and behaviours in design and innovation for financial products.

The post holder will use the participatory methods of inclusive and people-centred design to directly work with key Lloyds Banking Group stakeholders, ranging from decision makers, e.g., innovation managers and executives, to customer-facing colleagues, in order to:

  1. Scope how people-centred requirements of financially vulnerable groups can be better integrated at product / service design stage;
  2. Co-develop a framework that enables stakeholders themselves to apply inclusive design principles throughout the innovation processes of financial products / services within everyday practice.

The AKT Associate will be qualified to a PhD level (or equivalent work experience) and bring expertise in one or more of the following disciplines: inclusive design, design research, service design, design innovation, design assurance, financial equity, economics of scale, organisational anthropology, policy design and / or related disciplines.  The post is full-time, and the AKT Associate will be based between the Royal College of Art (1-2 day / week) and Lloyds Banking Group (3-4 days / week).
