User Experience Designer | Leicester | Contract | Household Name/FTSE 100 Company

An opportunity for a User Experience Designer has become available with a long established brand that is enjoying a very successful digital transformation towards true user centred design, focusing on creating outcomes instead of output.
Importantly: if you're looking for somewhere where you take a requirements brief, create wire frames, spec docs and provide "expert heuristic opinions" then you're looking in the wrong place!

This team focuses on what UX is supposed to be about: Gaining evidence around validated user needs and iterating a product in the pursuit of experimenting their way to customer value and business value.

As a UX Designer within a large UX team of around 30 other UX Designers you will responsible for all aspects of user experience including user needs research, behavioural science & cognitive science based usability testing (in our custom built on site usability lab), data analytics and user interface design including final visual design and finesse. This is an opportunity to work with a cutting edge award winning team that are continually improving their methods and ways of working as well as the products they are working on. You will join a team with an extremely high bar and have the opportunity to learn from your high performing colleagues on a daily basis in a friendly, inspiring and collaborative environment. If you are looking for a long term role focusing on products instead of projects that will enable you to use all of your UX utility belt and then some, then this the right challenge for you.
