Senior User Researcher

Government Sector

Our client is looking for an experienced User Researcher to support the retirement of legacy systems and create user centric improvements to newer systems within the Legal Sector. This role will be a mix of tactical discovery research to understand the uses of older legacy payment systems, and the unmet user needs around their use. The current focus is on systems handling, so is likely to involve interviewing legal professionals as well as internal staff. This will lead onto a series of design and testing cycles to create a revised approach to handling the assessment of bills in a way that meets the needs of users.

  • 5+ years of experience as a professional user researcher
  • Experience of research in a government context is essential, including experience of working in Agile teams
  • Qualitative and quantitative research experience

  • Able to evangelise for research and users, working with a range of stakeholders
