We’re looking for a detail-oriented UX researcher and designer to work on one of our most prestigious accounts. This is a hands-on role, conducting research using a variety of techniques that informs the design, strategy and development for our clients' products.

If you are passionate about how people use technology in the workplace, and are able to influence and inspire change, we want to hear from you!

You can be based in Bournemouth or London (with some travel to client meetings, workshops and usability testing sessions) and be responsible for:

  • Building and maintaining relationships with clients.

  • Conducting both qualitative and quantitative user research including stakeholder interviews, lab and remote usability studies, and trend research.

  • Supporting your design decisions with well thought through rationale and backed by your research.

We’re ‘can do’ – are you?

In an increasingly connected and fast changing world we believe there is always more that brands can do for business, and that businesses can do for their customers. Finding the time to identify those opportunities and then deliver on them requires strong partnerships, and a ‘can do’ attitude.

In our people, that manifests as passion, initiative and a general willingness to get stuck in. So you’ll be: 

  • Experienced in conducting quantitative and qualitative research using a range of techniques.

  • Passionate about delivering great work for clients and willing to go above and beyond to do it.

  • Hands-on in your approach.
