Doblin Innovation, Consultant/Senior Consultant, Strategy Consulting, London
The Design Consultant works as part of Doblin’s innovation delivery teams to collaboratively define new future business concepts and new product/service/system offerings, including conceptual direction and refined formal expression, under the direction of a project manager or more senior designer. This individual will be expected to demonstrate primary interest and experience within the design practice, and also bring a client-facing skillset required to execute innovation consulting projects.
Day-to-day work will include working with a multi-disciplinary set of colleagues and contributing heavily to the design process throughout client casework. Internally, Design Consultants are responsible for contributing to the development and communication of principles, methods and intellectual property related to Doblin’s design capability, sometimes to audiences of non-designers.
Specific responsibilities will include:
- Design and develop client communication materials and client events (overall experience, supporting assets and artifacts, etc.)
- Support client engagement and internal teams in the exploratory development and iterative processes.
- Define visual direction to depict new offerings and businesses.
- Contribute to concept prototyping and evaluative testing of new concepts
- Support business development and proposals for new client work
- Contribute to internal research and development projects
- Strong portfolio demonstrating excellent command of composition, typography, color and fundamental communication
- Ability to work in dynamic, often ambiguous conditions requiring rapid transitions between collaborative and individual work
- Technical proficiency with Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, etc.
- Basic knowledge of user research methods; ability to support planning and execution of research; contribute to analysis and interpretation of research to inform definition of design principles
- Undergraduate degree in design, plus prior work experience or relevant work experience
Doblin provides opportunities for Design Consultants to choose a path that suits them once they have gained exposure to the process. Some choose to pursue a design specialty over time, while others follow a more generalist innovation consultant path, which includes project management roles.
We are Consulting
Three core competency areas make up our Consulting service line:
- Strategy & Operations
- Human Capital
We exist to solve complex problems
Our consultants are renowned for their straightforward approach to solving some of the world’s largest and most complex business challenges. With a team of over 3,000, each of us is energised by the challenge a seemingly inscrutable problem presents. Our distinctiveness lies in our refusal to accept a problem at face value – we draw on the depth of our shared insight to ask the right questions, and it’s these questions that uncover answers – answers with impact.
We are committed to collaboration
Our role is to unlock potential for growth and innovation. We believe this requires real collaboration – with our own networks and with our clients. It’s why we commit to truly getting under the skin of our client’s needs, developing a full appreciation for their environment, goals and ambitions. We’re also unafraid to challenge. In so doing, we build long-term and trusted affinities.
We create long-term, sustainable impact
We often work hand-in-hand with our clients to help find the right solution and to help apply that solution. Our aim is to leave behind ambassadors who are equipped to continue the transformation we began. For us, it’s about embedding sustainable change, allowing the impact of our insight to be felt for a long time to come.
We offer a number of different career pathways
We offer three different career pathways at Deloitte, meaning that there are three different routes by which people can progress in Consulting. We provide variety regarding the career options available to you, assisting you to take career steps that fit your skills, talents and aspirations, and providing an environment where those choices can be discussed in meaningful and constructive career conversations.
The Consulting Career Paths are:
Consulting pathway – pathway based around developing a broad consulting skillset alongside building expertise in a specific domain
Consulting Solutions pathway – pathway where there is greater focus on building skills and deep expertise in a specific domain. Practitioners have a narrow focus, determined by their SME and type of contribution made
Consulting Services pathway – pathway for people whose career is built around the delivery of managed services to clients (either internal or external)

We deliver outstanding impact on the reputation and success of our clients, in the UK and globally. In pursuing this we contribute to a sustainable and prosperous society, and are firm believers in the positive impact business can and should have on the world it operates within.
