Freelance UX Designer

Duration:         3 months with potential to extend on a monthly rolling basis

Start date:      11th February 2019 (induction w/c 4th February)

Location:         Liverpool / North West

 

We are seeking a freelance UX designer to join the team remotely from the Liverpool area. This role will work closely with designers, project managers and developers to translate user and client goals into intuitive, accessible and delightful user experiences.

We are currently working on a project with the NHS to design “Open Electronic & Personal Health Records”. This project aims to create easier access to health data for patients and clinicians. The personal health record (PHR) is used to store data generated and input by the patient to support self-management and to share with clinical teams and carers. Each PHR connects to the relevant electronic health record (EHR) to pull data into a user friendly interface. Future iterations could allow user generated data to be pushed back into the open EHR.  


The Role:

  • Engage with clinicians, service users, carers and NHS staff

  • Progress the project and the platform from a user centered design perspective

    • Plan and run workshops and focus groups

    • Plan and conduct 1:1 depth interviews

    • Document requirements and priorities

    • Produce low to high fidelity wireframes / user flows at appropriate times

    • Manage your own time

  • Take responsibility for choosing which tasks need to be conducted when

  • Work closely with the design team, project managers and developers

  • Work closely with the client team

  • Report to Design Lead

 

You:

  • Positive and proactive

  • Curious to learn about your audience and what makes them tick

  • Great with people

  • Motivated by wanting to make positive change in people’s lives

  • Incredible attention to detail

  • Good at asking ‘why’ – an advocate for an intuitive, inclusive and meaningful user experience

  • Highly disciplined and confident working remotely (we communicate regularly via Slack, phone and Skype)

  • Confident in managing own time

  • Communicative, responsive and responsible

  • Excellent portfolio of UX demonstrating successful engagement with users and solid user experience design, including accessibility

 

Experience – you have:

  • at least 2 years working in a UX / research role

  • worked in and produced digital environments

  • ideally worked in or are very familiar with the health sector

  • ideally worked with public and/or third sector

  • worked with developers

  • ideally worked with remote teams
