Sponsored job: UX/UI Designer – Careers New Zealand — November 1, 2013

Sponsored job: UX/UI Designer – Careers New Zealand


Awesome experiences start when you do.

Use your UX expertise to grow your career and the careers of countless others.

UX – it seems like it wasn’t that long ago that people didn’t even know what it stood for… let alone how critical it is to online success. Fortunately the world has cottoned on to the value of a well structured user experience. And that’s great news for what Careers New Zealand is doing, what their users want to do and – right now – for your UX career.

Careers New Zealand is delivering tools that help Kiwis make well informed education and employment decisions. A customer-centric approach is at the very heart of all they do… and they’ve got big plans in the pipeline. So, the opportunity here for you is impressive to say the least. Not only that, you can look forward to the satisfaction that stems from helping others develop their careers, while enhancing your own.

They’re breaking new ground in their field, both locally and globally – setting the benchmark for careers development of online products and services. The best part though, is that they’ve only just scratched the surface of what’s possible. And you’ll have a major hand in creating ‘what’s next’.

Expect to be involved at a strategic level, working holistically with a broader perspective – applying UX principles to achieve bigger organisational goals. In a nutshell, you’ll directly influence their overall success – not be just a part of the puzzle. Whether it’s creating user scenarios, information structures, wireframes, navigation diagrams or workflow models, the user-centric logic you bring will ultimately deliver benefit to all involved. And you’ll get to do this in a truly fluid environment, with great collaboration where you can bring new thinking to the table and inject your own perspective and point of view.

We think there’s no better place to put your UX and visual design experience to use. Just show them you have strong core skills and that you’re a true advocate of UX methodologies, and they’ll show you stacks of opportunity.
