About Design at Concentra

Designers at Concentra have deep practitioner specialist skills across any or all parts of the design spectrum - from digital marketing and visual communications, UX & UI design, through to prototyping and movement. We, however, display a generalist attitude; an understanding of the whole design process, and can easily navigate, communicate and practice the full spectrum.

We have practical delivery skills to make actual things rather than just pictures of things. And these skills constantly evolve - so we self-teach a lot.

We are passionate about the intersection between Design, UX and Front End and the possibilities for innovation at those boundaries. We work in mixed discipline highly collaborative teams, committed to building better experiences and truly believe that user experience is the responsibility of the whole project team.

Role Overview

We are looking for UX Designers who have a passion for awesome User Experience and devising elegant solutions. As a UI/UX Designer at Concentra, you will be responsible for defining and creating the User Experience for Concentra's flagship products. You will understand any technical limitations, as well as be responsible for conceiving and conducting user research, interviews and surveys, and translating them into sitemaps, user flows, customer journey maps, wireframes, mock-ups and prototypes.

Collaborating alongside Business Analysts, Developers and Designers, you will be expected to design the overall functionality of the product, and in order to ensure a great user experience, iterate upon it in accordance with user-testing. You understand the difference between UI and UX design and have a creative yet organised approach to tackling problems and creating solutions.

  • Conducting user research via interviews and surveys, and document the results

  • Translating concepts into user flows, wireframes and mock-ups, optimised for a wide range of devices and interfaces

  • Validating design decisions by prototyping, testing and iterating on your designs
  • Working closely with development teams and visual designers to solve problems and align on solutions
  • Asking smart questions, taking risks and championing new ideas
  • Communicating regularly with clients and internal stakeholders
