Are you a passionate UX pro with a proven ability to craft innovative and elegant solutions that solve real user and business problems? Are you a champion of user-centred design, with a reputation as an exceptional collaborator and facilitator? If this sounds like you, then this role might be the perfect role for you.

My client are looking for someone to lead and develop their UX practice as they continue to grow and face new challenges. A practitioner who is outstanding by most other companies' standards. If you have previously worked and created some of your best work in a fast-paced and highly-collaborative environment, with an extensive toolbox of methods and techniques to draw upon. If you have a broad portfolio of work that demonstrates your experience of working across multiple platforms and devices, then this could be a perfect fit for you. You will initially be starting as the sole UX designer within this organisation, however my client are looking to expand their user experience team within the year, having a freelancers help you from time to time and then build a team around you, whether this means you need someone more senior to give you guidance or more junior to give you support. This is a great opportunity to really lead in your field and be a cut above the rest by being involved in the full UX lifecycle from start to finish, not just a small fraction or supporting others with the projects they hand to you.

Your experience:

*You should be able to communicate your ideas effectively to designers, developers, clients and other stakeholders.
*The ability to demonstrate a real passion and understanding of digital consumer behaviour combined with innovative thought leadership.

*Be able to visualize ideas and develop digital solutions to complex user and business problems across all forms of digital media, for clients ranging from small entrepreneurs to major global brands.
*Demonstrate solid understanding of the capabilities and limitations of the technologies that are used to create powerful user experiences, including JavaScript, AJAX, HTML, Flash, CSS, SQL.
*Able to provide a highly responsive client service whilst working on/running user experience activities on complex, multiple work stream projects, all the while ensuring high-levels of client satisfaction.
*Able to inspire and continually advocate creativity, innovation and best practice across all disciplines within an agency.
*Have demonstrable experience with a variety of UX techniques, methodologies and toolsets. Being an expert in Axure will help, but we can teach you this on the way.
*Substantial experience of planning and conducting user research and user testing.
*Ability to communicate best practices and feedback to members of the creative team, client services, strategy, technology, UX, PM, and other 3rd party individuals / teams.
