Junior

User Experience Designer

Full Time, 12 month contract

Day rate: £neg

Location: Central London

Are you passionate about using the power of good design to make digital products and services that people love?

We believe that designing great experiences goes beyond simply creating a cool app. Making omnichannel experiences that engage and reward is more complex and more subtle, demanding a particular perspective and rare set of talents. If you see the world like this too, then we’d like to talk with you!

We’re looking for a Junior User Experience Designer to join our award-winning team of thinkers and doers at our HQ in central London. We need a bright, talented person who is passionate about consumer and employee experiences and knows how to make them happen.

This is an amazing opportunity for a Junior User Experience Designer who is looking to start their career in the world of digital/UX/UI design in London. Or someone already working in UX/UI but wants to join an exceptional agency where they can grow their talents and gain commercial experience.

The role

  • You’ll work closely with our stellar team of UX designers, creatives, researchers, business stakeholders and product managers to define, design and deliver world-class experiences
  • You’ll gain extensive, hands-on experience across Newt’s portfolio of clients and sectors, working on service design projects for large enterprises, big retailers and fast-moving SMEs
  • You’ll be designing the overall experience and the detailed UI for apps, websites and offline experiences that will get our clients’ customers excited and employees engaged
  • You’ll combine quick, creative problem-solving with a good knowledge of user experience best practices to help guide and advise our clients
  • You’ll support the Lead Experience Designer on a variety of projects in a highly collaborative, fast-paced environment
  • You’ll move quickly up the ranks as you prove your capabilities, and will be given as much responsibility as you can handle

Essential skills and qualifications

  • Relevant, hands-on experience in UX design, UI design or service design. Commercial experience working as in a UX role is a bonus but not required.
  • A relevant Bachelor’s degree or Masters (for example User Experience Design, Service Design, Information Design, Interaction Design, Product Design, HCI, a cognitive science etc)
  • An analytical, problem-solving mindset with a good knowledge of user experience best practices
  • Experience in applying design thinking to solve real world problems
  • A thinker and a doer in equal measure
  • A good communicator, verbal, visual, and written
  • A quick learner – you’re happiest constantly discovering new things
  • Demonstrable experience using Axure or Sketch; evidence of using either of these tools to produce prototypes of web, tablet or mobile UIs
  • Role is based in central London, though occasional travel within UK may be required
  • The usual productivity software, i.e. MS Office
  • Good working knowledge of Google business applications (G Suite), i.e. Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Drive
