This post is full time and permanent, working 35 hours per week.
As part of our Digital Team, reporting to and collaborating closely with our Senior UX Designer, you’ll be focused on the critical work that underpins almost everything we do on our website – understanding our website users in detail and how we can best serve them.
You’ll be developing and deploying a variety of UX tools, techniques and strategies to this end, including user personas and journey maps, remote and in-person usability testing and interviews, and online tools for heatmapping, A/B testing and more. You’ll also work closely with our Web Analyst to leverage our Google Analytics data, combining qualitative and quantitative data to fully understand the what, why and how of user behaviour on our site.
You’ll use wireframing and/or prototyping tools to mock up, demonstrate and test your ideas and you’ll present your user research findings and design proposals to a variety of colleagues and stakeholders, so strong communication and presentation skills are essential.
In collaboration with our Senior UX Designer and Front-End Developer, you’ll also work on the maintenance and development of our website UI, liaising with the separate Design Team in our department to ensure brand consistency.
The Digital Team is made up of 13 people and we’re responsible for the University’s public website.
We work across web analytics, content, design (UI and UX) and development (front- and back-end), using an Agile framework (and the project management tool JIRA) to organise and deliver much of our work.
We have a Smart Working Policy in the team that allows for significant hybrid working. Most of our communication and collaboration is now conducted online, via MS Teams, but we also have a central London office (next to Oxford Street) that we share with colleagues from both our wider Global Recruitment, Admissions, Marketing and Communications department, as well as other Professional Services departments.
More information about this role can be found in the job description and person specification.
If you’d like an informal discussion to find out more about the role, you’re welcome to contact our Senior UX Designer, Danilo Tumminello, at email@example.com
