Mid-weight UX Designer required for Wedding Brand

Mid-weight UX Designer for Wedding Brand within Media House in West London (2 days) and Surrey offices (3 days) – £35,000 - £45,000

I am on the lookout for a talented Mid-weight UX Designer to join a large content based media company working on an array of projects for a wedding planning brand across responsive, cross platform and app design. You will get involved in the whole process from strategic thinking right through to the actual UX delivery.

The Client

Our client is a huge consumer media organisation who own and publish some of Britain’s most exciting and loved brands, reaching an audience of 22 million people a month. This is a great company to work for due to the large variety of projects you get to work on. There is a great work culture and office environment, amazing open space offices with a large bar and cafe on site.

You will be working with one of the UK’s largest wedding planning brands to sharpen their product focus and push the UX to a new level. This is a great opportunity to discover, design and deliver compelling experiences.

The Role as Mid-weight UX Designer

You will be responsible for championing the UX across the organisation and delivering first class designs for the various key products. You will work in a very collaborative environment working closely with the rest of the UX team, designers, developers and the product team.

You will report into the Lead UX designer, an experienced UX Designer who is more than happy to mentor and help develop your UX career.

Key Responsibilities

  • Conduct user research and use the insight to guide the products
  • Work closely with stakeholders and share your understanding of the user with the team
  • Create wireframes to communicate the experience
  • Work on the product roadmap, helping to steer the products for the future

The Candidate

The position requires you to work on the full UCD lifecycle, including conducting user research (in-depth surveys, focus groups, user interviews or desk research). The role will require you to work on a range of different products and stakeholders all with different understandings of UX. Therefore it is very important that you have good stakeholder management skills and are confident in defending your design solutions.

You will need to have a portfolio demonstrating the UCD process including sketching, wireframes and user journeys to name a few. It is vital that your portfolio tells a story, clearly showing what you did in the project and demonstrating your UX thinking.
