HAVAS LYNX is a communications agency with offices in Manchester, London and New York. In the UK, we have a team of 200 people who work to produce global campaigns that truly enhance people’s lives. The majority of our work focuses on healthcare matters and to deliver these messages, we create and deliver a wide range of digital solutions, including responsive websites, software applications and mobile applications. To ensure we continue to deliver and drive world-class User Experience for our clients, we are looking for an established UX Architect to join our Manchester based team.
At LYNX, our approach embraces user-centered design methodologies which translate user needs, context of use, business objectives and technology capabilities into excellent User Experience for strategic projects, which are deployed on a global scale. The role of UX Architect offers the suitable candidate a fantastic opportunity – you will work with a range of personalities, disciplines and levels of seniority across the Agency to ensure UX is maximized throughout all stages of the project life cycle; from developing the initial concepts, right through to the build stages. This role will also see you work directly with our clients, so there is plenty of scope to shape the brief, taking ownership and driving projects to reach their full potential. Key responsibilities of the role include, but are not limited to:
• Drawing on your knowledge and experience to support in the formulation
of digital strategies, ensuring they are engaging, well considered and
appropriate to our varied audiences
• Conducting user research and testing – identifying meaningful insights and
utilising these to provide informed recommendations
• Confidently explaining concepts to internal and external stakeholders,
alongside their strategic rationale
• Evaluating existing projects and continually refining these to drive traffic
optimisation and conversion
• Proactively sharing your knowledge and building relationships internally to
maximise awareness and consideration of UX
Personality is key and we’re looking for a team player who displays excellent initiative, who is proactive in problem solving and who remains calm under pressure. This is a brilliant opportunity for someone who is seeking a busy, responsible and varied role – so you should be passionate, possess real drive and have your own ideas, alongside the confidence to share them. In return, we offer a supportive environment where there is a high level of focus on your career development – we’re proud to offer our bespoke internal training programme; you can view more on LX Academy via the blog area of our website – http://www.havaslynx.com/blog/ We’re also very proud of our heritage and culture and we work in a sociable, friendly environment; take a look at our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter via @HAVASLYNXEU and @LX_workwithus for a closer look at what we get up to socially.
