Junior UX Designer

Digital Agency of the Year

Recently voted Digital Agency of the Year, this company will be the launchpad for an incredibly successful and long career in UX!

The client

This is a digital agency that’s been around for over 2 decades with offices in Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australasia. 2100 people globally and 180 digital in the London office across Innovation & Experience Design, Data Science, Engineering and Business Transformation & Commerce.

Based in central London within a richly layered and textured space where almost everything has been custom made, this space is distinctive and exciting, while at the same time sophisticated and true to their ethos.

UX Team

Joining a team of 5, you’ll be the Junior UX Designer on the team reporting directly into the Group UX Director.

User Experience is embedded throughout the business. In fact, every project starts with a deep consideration of how and where UX and UX Research will form the basis of all decisions. UCD thinking is also very important here. No fighting for budgets, you’ll have it on every project.

UX and UX Research is also not siloed out – all UX Consultants do both Research and core UX Design. It’s one of those rare places that understands you can’t have good design without good research fundamentals.

UX Consultants also work in Agile product squads across their vast client list – Paypal, Loreal, HBO, O2, Discovery Channel and more – with each squad made up of a UX Consultant, UI Designer, Developer, BA, QA, Scrum Master, Project Manager and a few others.

The role

Your Role

You’ll work on some of their key accounts including a huge project for Rolls Royce soon after joining.

You’ll liaise with senior stakeholders, hold workshops, conduct user research and use that insight to validate and inform your UX Design of digital products across web, mobile, voice and in-car experiences.

There is also a unique opportunity to travel to clients in USA, Europe, Asia and other areas in the world. UX team members often travel to see clients in Europe and to collaborate with other offices so it’s great opportunity if you love travelling and exploring the world. This isn’t mandatory though but they will offer all of this free of charge!
