  • who has an excellent understanding of best practice UX principles & trends
  • who can work closely with clients & facilitate insightful stakeholder workshops
  • who is able to research, plan & document all UX project deliverables to high quality standards

  • who is a strategic thinker & can create well thought out solutions without breaking a sweat
  • who can write well – and spell big words correctly

You will have …

  • a strong track record in UX, interaction design & information architecture
  • expert knowledge of relevant UX tools & ability to define your contribution to solving UX problems within a wider team
  • exceptionally strong communication & presentation skills – both in person & remote
  • ability to talk ‘geek speak’ to developers (we do not expect you to write code)
  • an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and a drive to both understand & keep pace with the changing technology landscape and its associated new user experience paradigms
  • who has an eye for quality and who takes pride in the small details

Bonus points if you …

  • submit a portfolio showcasing a variety of large scale enterprise & small scale commercial experience
  • have demonstrable analytics expertise & digital marketing knowledge
  • have a personal interest & hands on experience in emerging technologies – e.g. Mixed Reality

We can offer you …
