UX Designer

Our client is urgently looking for an experienced UX Designer to join their team based near Oxford, on a contract basis, initially for 6 months with a view to extend. The assignment is Inside IR35. The UX Designer will work remotely, with some travel to the office required on occasion.

UX Designer - Key Skills:

  • Experience participating in and preparing discovery workshops
  • Experience translating customer needs into solution concepts and articulating these through workflows, wireframes and possibly prototypes
  • Experience translating wireframes into more detailed interface designs
  • You have a passion for well-crafted user experiences
  • You enjoy solving problems and taking on new challenges, using a mix of creative and analytical methods
  • You are a strong collaborator with a sense of responsibility for the team's collective success
  • You are a seasoned UX Designer - this isn't a good fit for someone just out of school or in the process of transitioning into UX Design
  • You think on your feet, like to learn, and can learn quickly
  • Contributing to (and depending on experience, leading) the UX of complex projects through from Discovery to Delivery, including everything in between
  • Participating in and sometimes leading research to help you and your team generate understanding and empathy for your users and their needs
  • Reviewing requirements gathered from client stakeholders and subject matter experts, and exploring how these can be translated into compelling design concepts
  • Planning and facilitating workshops to help you, your team, and customers discover needs, set project direction, and ideate solutions
  • Crafting experiences that go beyond good design into delighting users
  • Communicating your designs both internally to team members, and to stakeholders, not only through sketches, wireframes and mockups, but also verbally and in workshops
  • Testing designs with users
  • Helping non-UX professionals to understand the value of UX and adopt UX practices - we believe the experience is a shared responsibility and want to take the whole team on the journey
  • Drawing upon existing design standards and pattern libraries, as well as identifying opportunities to expand them where necessary
  • Thinking about Information Architecture and how best to expose only what is necessary to the end user through simple UI and Interaction
  • Hands-on experience working in an Enterprise environment
  • Experience using Sketch.
  • Ability to create clickable prototypes of your design concepts, either in code or using tools such as Omnigraffle, Axure, Figma and Principle.
  • Working in an agile environment.
  • Successful experience in more complex fields such as healthcare, finance, enterprise, etc.
