Head of User Experience – Global Digital Agency – Paris - €110,000 + Great Benefits - (Ref. J4224)
We are working collaboratively with a leading global digital agency to find a Head of UX for their Paris office. This position is integral to their digital offering playing a leading role in the agency and working under the stewardship of the Executive Creative Director. They have recently lost their existing Head to a digital agency in NYC but he will still be active in the recruitment of his replacement.
This role will be a key member of the management team and you will play a pivotal role in the strategic direction, creative vision and championing a UCD approach within the agency. You should have experience of leading and pitching on large accounts with strong business acumen helping budget, plan and deliver on projects as well setting clear measurable and KPI’s to define success.
This role will be leading a team of 10 UX practitioners made up of information architects and interaction designers that will all contribute to the hands on research when needed. To date they have not had a dedicated research team and endeavour to build in a discovery phase on every project so ability to carry out informal quick and dirty research is essential.
Their client base is varied and the work will inter-change from large campaign projects through to multi-million euro design and build projects. You should have strong understanding of agency processes and how to collaborate with creative, tech and client services. The agency needs a head of UX that can articulate their design thinking and relate this to business needs at all times ensuring they can visualise the whole product road map and each team’s involvement throughout.
They offer a very competitive package with excellent bonus, healthcare, subsidised canteen, subsidised travel and impressive holiday allocation. The role is based in Paris and some people do commute weekly from the UK so this is very much a relocation position. Finally, the office speak English however its recommended you have a grasp of the French language to get by.
