They say that the average job seeker spends approximately 90 seconds reviewing a job ad before deciding if the role is worth applying for. With that in mind, I wanted to craft an ad that is (hopefully) short and sweet, but detailed enough to make an impression.

Here goes nothing...

I am working closely with a Global Organisation in the finance/banking space who are looking to add an experienced Lead UX Designer to their existing design function. The role is based out of their Knutsford HQ and they see this hire as a key strategic component of their 2018 recruitment plans.

Why?

Well that part is simple.

They, like other successful custome-centric businesses, realise that UX is crucial to how an organisation's products and services engage with their customer base.

Their core suit of products are rolled out across Web, Mobile and Desktop and your role will be to ensure that they continue to innovate and shape the customer journey, both now and in the future.As a Lead UX Designer, you'll be tasked with solving a range of complex problems, whilst helping define the standards and frameworks to be used by the team. You will be expected to bring visions to life, working with Software Engineers and Product Owners to create new and exciting ways of improving UX across the board. Moreover, you will take on leadership responsibilities, ensuring processes and standards are maintained and that industry best practice is adhered to throughout.

It goes without saying that you will have a strong portfolio of work demonstrating your considerable understanding of UX, highlighting your impressing wireframing experience (ideally detailed high-fidelity wireframing) and strong prototyping skills. But ultimately it is your research skills, sketching, and mock ups of digital user experiences that set you apart from the crowd.

Moreover, you will be a strategic thinker and somebody who can contribute new ideas rather than simply improve existing ideas. You will be somebody with a portfolio's full of modern, smart, responsive, Mobile and Desktops designs, showcasing your best work and demonstrating why you would be an excellent fit for this role.

You should have excellent experience with the Adobe Creative Suite (Dreamweaver, Creative Cloud, Illustrator, Photoshop etc.) as well as knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript. You will have experience of designing to framework libraries like Bootstrap, Foundation or Skeleton and ultimately have a passion for all things technology.

You will be given the opportunity to become immersed in a highly creative environment in the middle of an enormous company-wide Agile transformation and will be given the opportunity to progress in a meritocratic structure. You will be given a generous annual bonus as well as a 10% non-contributory pension, home working opportunities, flexible working hours and private healthcare.

Ultimately, you will be given the opportunity to create something with your own personal stamp all over it - all you need to do is call 07943721308 or 0191 338 7540. Alternatively, send me an email to l.haghighat@frankgroup.com or find me on LinkedIn (I am not very hard to find - just search for 'Liam Haghighat').
