We’re hiring! Are you our new UX / UI Designer?

By Sarah Henderson

We are hiring a UX / UI Designer for an (approximately) 6-week design sprint to help us bring our new, improved Echo digital platform to life. 

Over the past few years, we’ve been gathering feedback and ideas from our members to explore how we can have a bigger impact with the Echo platform, and improve the user experience for our members.

Now, as part of our recent merge with Civic, we are super excited to have started work on an enhanced digital platform for Echo.

We are working with the Civic Product Team to build a ‘2.0’ Echo platform that will… 

>>  Make it simpler and smoother to trade on Echo – building on feedback and suggestions from our members

>>  Increase Echo’s social impact – by powering more Echo activity, from workshops and events to initiatives like the Community Chest and Echo++ business support

>> Launch Echo communities in new places – responding to requests from people across the UK and beyond to start Echo communities where they are

As part of this work, we are excited to be growing our team, and hiring a UX/UI Designer.


Are you our new UX / UI Designer? (Or do you know someone who is?)

We are looking for an experienced UX and UI designer to work with our product team on building this new platform. This will initially be an (approximately) 6-week sprint, full time, with scope for future work on Echo and across Civic’s projects.

We’re looking for someone with relevant experience across UX (user experience) and UI (user interface) who is as passionate about the Echo concept as we are, who’s up for the challenge and ready to bring new and creative solutions to the table.

You can read the full details, job spec and how to apply here. Interviews are on a rolling basis, and the position will be filled as soon as a suitable applicant is found.


We want to ensure that you, our members, play an important role in shaping what the new platform will be like. We’ll be sharing more ways soon that you can get involved in the development process – from focus groups to user testing sessions.

We’re excited to have you with us on this next stage of Echo’s journey!
