UX Researcher

UX Researcher
Location: Wilmslow, Cheshire (and remote)
Full-time, permanent
Salary: up to £40,000 DOE

We are Citation Group.

We offer colleagues and clients an opportunity they will not gain at many other businesses.

We are interested in growth, investment and service excellence, we have never and will never grow our business by cost cutting or tying people up in bureaucracy.

We don't do politics - we want people focused upon actions and delivery.

We don't do micro-management - we empower, support and innovate.

We are leaders, not empire builders and we love our business.

This is a really exciting to join us in this newly created role.

Across our group companies we have over 45,000 clients who love us, need us and want to buy more from us.

Having acquired 10 businesses over the last 3 years which offer products and services that our clients need and want; we're only interested in future growth; we're not finished yet.

But we're in lockdown again - is that what you're thinking? We've not made anyone redundant and don't plan on doing so either.

We've just entered our 3rd wave of private equity ownership alongside KKR and Hg Capital and don't plan on slowing down anytime soon.

This also means as the company grows over the next 3 to 5 years, you've got the opportunity to do so too! If the prospect of this excites you… good, you're the right type of person for us.

In this key role, you will work with key stakeholders and teams right across the business.

It is a wide and varied role with bags of opportunity and support.

With continual double-digit growth year on year, our business thrives on people with vision, determination, agility, focus and brilliant people skills.

The role

You will play a key role in evolving the direction of Citation's group wide software platform Atlas which supports over 40,000 clients across the UK.

Designed to streamline day-to-day activities, Atlas puts clients in full control of their compliance and quality responsibilities.

With investor backing to take the platform to the next level this is a great opportunity for someone who wants to be bold and think big on how Atlas can support the SME space.
