You should be:

  • able to focus on the fine detail of a problem whilst considering the wider strategic context.
  • as happy working with pen and paper as on a Mac.
  • able to visually and verbally communicate your ideas effectively to clients and colleagues alike — be that in a pitch, a daily standup, a workshop or in the pub afterwards.
  • diplomatic and have the ability to resolve problems using your own initiative.
  • able to play nicely with account teams and other talented types throughout the agency.

 

This role will also provide the opportunity to help further develop and promote MRM’s UX offering (tools, techniques and process), managing and mentoring other UX Designers as well as raising awareness of the importance and value of UX to clients, internal teams and the McCann agency network.
