CX Lead

Melbourne Contract / 6 months AU$900 - AU$1300 per day

About the Company:

The client is a large financial organisation in Melbourne’s CBD. Their mature design department values HCD, innovation and customer research. The collaborative culture embraces new ideas and hard work while maintaining a good work / life balance. You’ll mostly work remotely, with 1 or 2 days a fortnight in the office.

About the Role:

You’ll be the first CX resource in the business unit, though you’ll share resources with the wider Customer Experience team. Initially, the role will initially be very hands on, building what the customer need is, assessing pain points, wireframing, iterating and getting ready for delivery.

As you hire CX and UX Designers, you’ll move into a leadership role – setting the strategy, and mentoring your team.

6 months initially, with a view to extend.

  • Continually advocate for the customer throughout the project, demonstrating deep familiarity with data, insights, findings and ongoing decisions, and assisting with identifying changes to planned activities

  • Be able to guide a team’s research, discussions and ideas into conceptual designs, and guide ensuing discussions to drive to a strong design which reflects customer and business needs
  • Direct activities through project teams such as: customer experience research, synthesis and insight generation, ideation, creation of personas and customer journey maps, conceptual design, sketching, Wireframing, prototyping, and customer validation activities, while ensuring designs are Accessible
  • Deep understanding of Design Thinking and HCD methodologies
  • Experience in creating a culture of collaboration and knowledge sharing
  • Ability to continuously improve processes and use adaptive problem solving to optimise team performance, seeing design methodology and practices as living processes which can be continuously updated and enhanced
