Graduate UX/UI User Researcher 2021
Location : Telford
Intake: April 2021
Who you’ll be working with
User research is vital to any IT solution. So it will come as no surprise that our User Researchers are deeply valued by our talented UX community.
Match our innovative designers’ passion for collaboration – both with each other and their clients – and you’ll enjoy scaling private and public sector technology challenges. As part of a team where creativity and ingenuity aren’t just welcomed, but expected
The Focus of Your Role
You’ll know all too well just how confusing some websites can be – how many times has Alexa, Google or Siri misunderstood you? As a User Researcher, you’ll use different techniques to find out users’ needs, motivations and pain points and inform the design of a system or service.
It’s something that calls for a wide range of skills, as you’ll interview users, create detailed plans, understand and extrapolate data, facilitate workshops, present research findings and more.
Everything you do will be valued by our designers and developers, and help to create the best end-to-end experience for users, regardless of their device or their skill level. Ultimately, you’ll help ensure the information they receive is timely, appropriate and, most importantly, understandable.
What you’ll do
- You’ll identify users and use the best research method to discover their needs.
- You’ll present your research analysis and findings to colleagues and key stakeholders.
- You’ll turn complex information into easy-to-understand, compelling insights.
- You’ll encourage less digital-savvy people to be confident with new technology.
- You’ll collaboratively define the best user journeys.
- You’ll consider how external factors like policy, legislation, business constraints and technology might have a negative impact on the user experience.
- You’ll build strong relationships that enhance our agile delivery team’s effectiveness.
- You’ll work closely with a range of digital delivery experts as well as external business stakeholders and subject matter experts.
What you’ll bring
- A Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, sociology, anthropology, Human Computer Interaction or any user experience degree or modules, and passion for technology’s unlimited potential and ability to engage with people.
- The flexibility to travel to clients.
- Solid communication skills, with the astuteness to really listen and confidence to reach your target audience.
- A love of learning that means you’ll make the most of this growing form of technology to develop your skills in parallel with the needs of your clients.
- Impressive problem-solving capabilities.
- UK residency for the last five years with no more than six months out of the country (in order to meet security clearance requirements).
