We are ready to offer two people a fantastic opportunity to work here as Graduate UX Consultants.
What you’ll be doing
Working from our Bristol HQ, you’ll join our team of over 20 UX consultants and learn ‘on-the-job’ on a variety of different projects, in varied industry sectors including government, healthcare, energy, telecoms or charity. You’ll work on a range of interesting projects for our clients in support of our highly experienced and well-regarded UX practitioners, learning a wide range of practical skills and research methodologies.
At Nomensa there is no ‘typical’ day, but you might be: interviewing a client’s customers to understand their behaviours and motivations; running research with people with disabilities to help make a client’s website accessible for all; sifting through research findings to create a set of personas, coming up with ideas for a new IA, taking part in client workshops, competitor site reviews for a new client, or working with our design team to sketch interface ideas for a new responsive site. You might also be working on internal projects or conducting research for Nomensa whitepapers, or writing reports for our clients.
Our culture of learning and development here is second to none. In addition to on-the-job training in our UX techniques, we run regular workshops and internal training to build your technical and soft skills, and will assign an experienced mentor to provide advice and guidance. You’ll be gaining practical skills and hands on experience in UX, working alongside some of the best minds in user experience, design and software engineering.
What we’re looking for
We’re looking for graduates who have a real passion for a career in the UX field, and the digital world around us. You’ll need to be the type of person who gets a kick out of researching user behaviour and creatively problem-solving. Design or sketching skills would also be advantageous, but not essential.
You’ll be familiar with different research or analysis techniques to inform decision making. It’s possible you have already learned about UX, or studied human behaviour or psychology as part of your degree, and gained practical research skills while doing it. For example, you might have completed a degree like Product Design, Psychology, Industrial Design, User Centred Design, Ergonomics, Human Factors, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) or another related discipline, as these are very relevant to UX consultancy work.
Above all we’re looking for graduates who want to humanise technology and build fantastic digital experiences, who are quick learning, willing to bring a positive attitude and ideas to the team, good at managing your own time, and working well with other team members or clients. Nomensa is a highly collaborative environment where we always aim to deliver outstanding experiences – for our clients, end users, and everyone who works here.
How you’ll be rewarded
At Nomensa you’re able to have a long term career where you’ll be given plenty of responsibility to aim for, along with exposure to a wide ranging variety of project work in a plethora of industries.
In return for your talents you’ll be given a starting salary of £22,000, along with a company MacBook, a generous holiday allowance of 26 days a year plus bank holidays, rising with service. You’ll also have an annual pay review, a training budget and a range of other benefits.
Aside from this, we have an immensely friendly, social culture at Nomensa. We put on regular team building activities and special events throughout the year, and our team of Chief Happiness Officers are always looking at new and interesting ways of making this a great place to work.
How to apply
Please upload your CV and covering email on our recruitment portal. We’d love to hear what attracts you to working at Nomensa, why you would love to choose the UX Consultant career path, and a bit about you as an individual. What are your interests and passions outside of work, for example.
Closing date: Friday 7th June.
