User Experience Consultant

Our client is a leading B2B communications agency with a growing digital offer. With offices in London, New York and Dubai they are expanding their business internationally and are looking to bolster their digital team by hiring a talented UX Consultant.

The Senior UX Consultant will work as part of our Digital team in London, reporting to, Director of Digital and have both a hands-on role working with clients as well as a management role across information architects.

The role is due to the continuing expansion of the agency in the digital space and an increasing number of projects and pitch opportunities.

The role

The Senior UX Consultant will have a broad role within the business. First, they will lead the user experience and information architecture offering, developing our abilities in user centred design, sitemapping, storyboarding and wireframing, pitching to client prospects and delivering work on current client projects. The role will work closely with teams across the digital spectrum: project managers, designers and developers, and will be the focal point for user experience in our digital business and beyond.

The role will also have management responsibilities, managing an existing team of two information architects (one permanent, one freelance) and recruiting as a result of business growth. As the owner of user experience, the candidate will have a unique opportunity to redefine how the agency works, the tools that are used and the processes that are employ.
