Senior UX Consultant

UX Agency

An awesome opportunity to work with a very UX-mature agency and highly skilled, friendly team. They even have their own labs!

The client

They’re quite small but will also use contractors when needed. However, the bulk of their internal team are made up of UX consultants and also Service Designers. Many have HCI backgrounds and all are enthusiastic about offering a premium and thorough service to their clients. Attention to detail, hard work and proper process are key for them.

This agency are also big on values and ethics. So they don’t do any work within sectors such as gambling, alcohol, defense, tobacco etc.

No one’s required in their London office for rest of this year (although the office is open for anyone who actually wants to go in – there are some who still do). Going forward, work will remain remote until things get better with Covid. Once things return to ‘normal’ there will still be a lot of flexibility for those that want it e.g. 2-3 days in office/2-3 days from home.

*sorry, sponsorship isn’t available however*

  • Working directly with stakeholders helping them distil project goals and objectives into project requirements.
  • Designing exciting and innovative concepts that can be applied across platform.
  • Sharing knowledge and skills with the rest of the team on UX best practice, recognising potential in the latest technology and other service design trends.

 

The candidate

  • Previous agency or consultancy experience would be hugely beneficial.
  • High standard of report writing, making it easier for clients to connect the dots with clear communication and actionable recommendations.
  • Someone who’s active in the market past your 9-5 responsibilities e.g. regularly attend digital/ux events or write blogs linked to the industry.
