A full service digital solutions provider who work with an impressive range of clients from world renowned automotive brands, public sector bodies, financial services organisations and telecommunications providers.
Multi-award winning and fiercely proud of the culture they have created in both their corporate HQ and the London office, this organisation really understands the importance of keeping employees happy.
Constantly trying to push the envelope, they aren't just your run of the mill digital agency who simply take orders from clients. They consult with each customer, partner with them and come up with innovative solutions - often delivering far beyond the expectation of the client, with real demonstrable results, not just a pretty solution.
Working hand in hand with the Director of Strategy, you will play an integral role in driving forward the UX capabilities of the organisation.
You will be working very closely with a world class development team, high calibre business analysts and project managers to help wow customers with first class digital solutions. As part of this, you will be heavily involved in management meetings and decision making around the whole company.
As the go to person on all things UX, you will understand how user experience intertwines with the rest of the business, both from an internal perspective and externally for customers.
A major part of the role will be building/growing the UX team, bringing people in who match the company values, want to progress and can keep you on your toes in terms of keeping your skills sharp.
You will have demonstrable experience as a Senior UX Designer who is looking to progress their career to the next stage or indeed you will currently be a Head of UX who is looking for a fresh challenge.
As this team is growing and you will be responsible for bringing talent into the business, the initial part of the role will very much be hands on, both in terms of scoping out the current UX work but also delivering for clients.
You'll be confident in your ability working with senior stakeholders; juggling multiple projects at once; working to tight deadlines and inspiring the people around you.
You will also be comfortable championing all things UX, both inside work and at meet-ups/conferences, with the desire to learn new ways of doings things and indeed technologies.
