UX and Content Intern

 

The UX team

In the User Experience (UX) team we’re responsible for creating the experience of a digital product. And by that we mean how easy it is to navigate, how it behaves, and how it feels. The ultimate aim of our game however is to create something that’s not only usable, but that surprises and delights people. If a website is frustrating, annoying, or just plain dull then perhaps that site needs our help. This means we take responsibility for the way our websites are organised, the content that goes in them, and the way they work.

The role

As a placement in the UX team you will be involved in loads of different stuff at every stage of digital projects. You’ll learn how to build out web pages using various different content management systems, audit website content, come up with ideas to solve client problems, use existing site components to create new pages, develop wireframes (which are like blueprints for web folk) and eventually work with the design and development teams to bring your ideas to life.
