Are you an ambitious junior or solid mid-weight UX practitioner looking to make a real difference to the lives of millions of people with asthma?

Are you interested in working as part of a small, friendly and agile team that is constantly evolving and innovating in the arena of digital healthcare?

What we do at Asthma UK really matters. The better, deeper and longer relationship we have with people with asthma and their long-term condition, the more lives we save. It’s that simple. Through this role, you’ll have a unique opportunity to make a real difference on a massive scale for the one in five households affected by asthma.

We’re looking for someone who:

·         Has a deep knowledge of the principles and practice of user centred design

·         Has experience of qualitative and quantitative research techniques, as well as producing deliverables like user journey maps, information architectures, wireframes and prototypes

·         Is tenacious and resilient in acting on insights to push improvements and innovation to services and products

·         Is passionate about the power of UX to drive real change in the lives of people with asthma

·         Is a true team player and confident working across teams to drive delivery

If this sounds like you and you want to bring your insight, knowledge and passion into an environment where it will make a real difference, namely stopping asthma attacks and curing asthma, this is the role for you.

We are committed to supplying the best possible experience to those who can benefit from our support, then translating this experience into financial support so we can continue to save lives. Our board and senior team are externally recognised for their commitment to digital innovation in achieving our mission.

What the role involves:

·         Being the voice of the user in cross functional teams developing products and services

·         Using a variety of techniques to generate insight for new and existing products and services

·         Analysing user research and communicating findings to internal and external teams

·         Advocating the importance of UX, and playing a key role in ensuring this becomes embedded in our development practices

·         Maintaining an up-to-date knowledge of user centric design thinking and practice

This is a great place to work

At approximately 80 people, we’re a tight team working together successfully to stop asthma attacks and cure asthma. We offer substantial benefits, including 30 days holiday (plus bank holidays). Our recent staff survey shows that alongside having a high-performance culture, Asthma UK is a great place to work, with excellent opportunities for development.
