Capita IT Resourcing is currently partnered with a leading, family-owned organisation in their search for a UX Designer to join their growing Digital team in Manchester. The Digital team is changing what it means to work in transport. It's their responsibility to define and deliver the digital strategy for the wider group - and that means a whole host of exciting projects to get involved with. They're working to transform everything - from journey planning to on-board experiences - across road and rail. The team is full of dynamic and disruptive thinkers. It's a creative space where everyone pitches in with ideas, helping the organisation to be front of the queue in transport innovation. We're passionate about helping more people - including those with accessibility and mobility issues - access better transport.

In this role you will work closely with the Product Owner and Business Analysts as well as the wider Digital, Technical team to deliver a backlog of enhancements and new features. You will need to understand the requirements and bring them to life in the form of sketches, prototypes, detailed wireframes and designs.

Key responsibilities

  • Review requirements with the Product Owner and provide appropriate feedback to ensure that they do not unnecessarily restrict or define the user experience.
  • Advise the Product Owner on the prioritisation of user experience enhancements based on their impact on the customer.
  • Create sketches, prototypes, wireframes and designs for new features and enhancements based on the prioritised requirements.
  • Review and understand customer insight and feedback in order to identify user experience solutions which help solve customer problems and meet business goals.
  • Take ownership of the existing digital style guide and ensure it is up to date and easy to use as a reference for other designers and colleagues across the team.
  • Work closely with the development team to ensure deliver pragmatic design solutions that are created with the final coded product in mind.
  • Protect the best possible customer experience and advocate that customer behaviours, attitudes and trends are always at the heart of the experience.

To succeed in this role you'll need both a strong understanding of digital and a passion for turning an innovative digital design into a reality. You'll need the technical know-how and creative vision to make a real difference to our digital propositions. This will include hands-on experience of designing e-commerce web and app experiences.

Knowledge & Experience

  • Experience in leading and participating in creative workshops.
  • Experience working in collaborative team environment, working directly with developers to implement designs.
