Senior/Lead User Researcher

Government Department (Inside IR35)

This Government department, based in London are looking for a Senior User Researcher for a 6 month freelance role. Working in Government, this is an excellent opportunity to have your work effect real change and solve real-world problems.

Embedded in a small cross-functional team, you will be working within a department that deals primarily with vulnerable members of society. You’ll be carrying out both discovery and more tactical work within this role as you conduct research to improve new or existing services.

You would be ideal for this role if you…

  • Have an academic background, i.e. a HCI degree
  • Have worked in a research heavy organisation, or have experience working in government (but this is not essential!)
  • Solid experience operating within an Agile environment

Please note this role is inside of IR35. In addition, onboarding can take around a month which works well if you are looking to transition from perm into freelance.

Send over your CV if this sounds of interest!

We welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences. Our team includes parents, the self-taught, the university-educated, and people of a wide variety of nationalities, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Obviously, we’re looking to ensure it’s a solid fit from both sides: we want you to step into a role you love, and we want to offer you a place you’re proud to come to every day for work.

We know that diverse teams are strong teams, and welcome those with alternative identities, backgrounds, and experiences to apply to be part of life at Zebra People. We are committed to a fair and accessible recruitment process for all candidates. We would be happy to meet any accommodation requests during the application or interview process, please just let us know.
