  • Be getting your hands dirty running workshops and performing interviews with users and stakeholders
  • Be designing and testing prototypes with real users
  • Help define information architecture and user flows

The successful candidate is likely to:

  • Demonstrate passion for digital and design
  • Be a natural problem solver who isn’t afraid to ask questions
  • Always have the end user in mind
  • Have a strong eye for visual design (but please note we’re looking for UX designer rather than UI or visual designer)

In return we’ll offer an enviable office environment either on a beautiful country estate on the edge of the Cotswolds or in the centre of Bristol, salary of £31,000 to £35,000 commensurate with experience plus performance-related bonus and 25 days’ annual leave.
