About the role
We are looking for forward thinking people to help us create amazing things! That's why we're recruiting for this UX Designer Placement role, which is designed for a university student looking for a year in industry as part of their degree.
You will be working within the Experience Design Team, designing new features on real projects for some huge clients of ours.
You will learn about our user-centred design process and how to practice ‘design thinking’ to help clients solve problems and deliver products and services that delight their customers and help them achieve their goals.
This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside some of the industry’s best designers and developers on some great projects. No two days are the same – our client list is wide and diverse – and we will ensure that you are on the front line, interacting directly with them.
We have a great retention rate for our placement students, many come back and work with us full-time straight out of University. Our current CTO Mark Starling started with us as a placement student and has worked his way to the top. We really do set you up for a career after graduation.
Here at MMT Digital we are not as corporate as some companies, we know that people thrive in a fun and vibrant working environment – so that’s just what we’ve created.
In order to flourish in this role, you’ll need the following:
- Studying for a design-related degree
- Keen to develop your design thinking and problem-solving skills
- Ability to demonstrate how you approach design projects
- Be a confident and articulate communicator
- Ability to understand the importance of involving users in the design process
- Passion for the broader field of design
It would also be great (but not essential) if you have:
- Experience in user research and analytics – to learn about user’s behaviour, goals, motivations and needs
- An understanding of user journey mapping and information architecture – to describe routes through products and define the best structure, language and labelling
- Experience in prototyping & wireframing – to describe the features, functionality and usability of products
- An interest in visual and interaction design – to bring prototypes to life and build engagement and delight with users
These skills are not a prerequisite, the role will help you learn and develop those areas.
