  • Lead the processes around user research, concept testing, and usability testing; conduct competitive audits and market research - and convert findings into design decisions.
  • Lead rapid iterative “discovery” streams (using various prototyping tools and significant usability testing) in an attempt to validate ideas quickly and minimize engineering effort.
  • Immerse yourself in insights, competitor analysis , user research and qualitive and quantitive data to inform new ideas and optimisation.
  • Work closely with digital delivery teams, business analysts, developers, and adjoining teams in head office.
  • Lead and support for UI designers to development.
  • Validate design through usability testing.
  • Work with senior management to prioritise features and functionality against key business objectives.

Skills and Experience Required:

  • Have experience with A/B & MVT testing.
  • Strong leadership skills enhanced with motivational qualities, and communicational skills.
  • Hard working, resourceful, and flexible.
  • Able to inspire and influence teams and senior management alike.
  • Good delegation and coaching skills – highly comfortable in empowering individuals and development teams.
  • Act quickly and decisively using good judgement in making decisions and performing actions.

The role is based in the Spoke Office in London, however being based in Redditch Office in Worcestershire is negotiable as long as travel to London is workable.
