I am recruiting for a UX Researcher on behalf of a digital organisation in Blackpool.

Working as part of a collaborative team, your role will involve working with UX Designers, Business Analysts and Product Owners to help shape and validate research hypothesis across a varying range of digital projects. You will be working with cross-functional and globally distributed teams, ensuring that a consistent set of best practices and shared research opportunities are maintained in order to help ultimately mature the research practice within the organisation as a whole.

But enough about them... this ad is all about you.

Such as, what do you need to demonstrate to be considered for this role? Well... rather than simply regurgitating their formal JD, I have decided to pick out some of the key skills they are looking for:

UX Research - First and foremost, you must have a proven track record in UX Research. Hands-on experience with varying research methodologies (e.g. behavioural and ethnographic research, iterative lab/guerrilla usability testing, tree testing, benchmarking, remote/online testing etc.) is crucial and should be visible on your CV or application document. You should have clear experience carrying out E2E UX Research projects and any experience doing so in either a web or mobile setting would be ideal. Moreover, a deep understanding of user journeys, personas, user stories, task modelling, usability and human-centered design is also hugely beneficial.

Stakeholder Management - Due to the nature of the role and the nature of the business, you need to have clear and proven experience working in a stakeholder-facing environment. Your role would involve liaising with multiple business units (think 'Internal Consultant') so any prior experience working in either a Digital Agency or Software Consultancy would be preferred.

Agile Experience - This organisation are on something of an 'Agile journey' so it is crucial anybody they bring into the business helps that journey. Therefore, you do need to have proven experience working in an Agile environment and should be able to explain the benefits of Agile as a development/design methodology.

So there you have it... a pretty interesting role if I don't say so myself, and something that should hopefully appeal to you. If it does, and you would like to set up a chat, then give me a shout via the following means.

Or call Alexandra Stewart - (+44)
