Overview of the role and team structure

We’re looking for a Senior Content Designer to join FT Enterprise/B2B, building products and services to bring the FT into the workflows of 850,000 professional users world wide.

  • Excellent communication, stakeholder management and leadership skills. 
  • Experience working in cross-functional agile teams alongside product. designers, user researchers, product managers, engineers, data analysts, etc.   - this role won’t involve writing blogs or social media posts.
  • Experience working with analytics, data and research insights to support content design decisions.
  • Comfortable navigating a large, complex organisation.


About FT Enterprise/B2B 

In FT Enterprise/B2B we are building premium products and tools that give professional customers value over and above a standard FT subscription. In 2022 we helped customers share and collaborate with Highlighting and Enterprise Sharing, became the first media organisation to release an app for Microsoft Teams, and enabled Single Sign-on to help customers access personalised content recommendations even more efficiently. 


2023 is an exciting time to join the Enterprise/B2B design team: we are rolling out a fresh new brand, expanding our design system, exploring new products around communities, events and analytics, and designing personalised experiences to help FT customers find the most relevant content to their role. 


How we work

We offer a 40 hour working week to contractors in our London office. Our hybrid setup means staff are expected to come into the office 2 days a week on average. We operate flexibly and thus this 2 day a week figure should be taken as a general ratio of the time you will spend in the office.
