Company & Role Overview:
Ocean Media Group is a dynamic and progressive organisation, creating services that help our customers succeed and in turn drive our growth. We hold the number one live events and digital brands in all the markets we serve and are on an ambitious and exciting growth trajectory. Our innovative approach, delivered expertly through our market-leading brands, creates highly engaged and loyal audiences.
We’re looking for a Lead UX Designer to shape the way we deliver our products to customers across our markets.
This is a new role and is part of a growing Product Team. You will work closely with this team and with marketing and commercial teams across the business to define and deliver compelling user journeys, improve customer experience and deliver innovative, exciting, engaging and usable products.
For context, the Digital Product Team is responsible for supporting multiple platforms across the following key areas:
As our Lead UX Designer, reporting into Head of Product, you will champion user experience design across Ocean Media Group’s portfolio of digital products; these include both stand-alone commercial brands (such as confetti.co.uk, weddingstylecollective.co.uk, housingexpert.com and bridalbuyer.com), as well as marketing sites that support traditional print and event brands.
You will be the sole UX specialist in the business so we’re looking for somebody who can hit the ground running and make a big impact quickly.
We’re all about design thinking, collaboration and challenging the way things are done and you’ll be expected to do the same using UX best practices.
Job duties & responsibilities:
You might already be in a Lead role and looking for a new challenge, or you might be ready to take the next step and really make your mark. Either way, you’ll be able to work independently and take the lead on whatever product you’re working on with your exceptional leadership and communication skills. People management experience is a bonus as we will be looking to grow the team around you.
