Our CX & Digital Centre of Excellence is a community of digital professionals researching, defining and delivering cutting edge, customer centric user journeys and propositions across insurance and healthcare.
What you’ll be doing:
Research – we believe that user experience design isn’t user experience design without engaging with real users to understand their needs and expectations. In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to travel to our offices to understand more about our customer needs and pain points.
Workshops – Empathy workshops, discovery workshops, design review and ideation. Every project has different UX requirements. We believe the key to a successful UX project is to know what to do and when. Our UX team is collaborative by approach, we learn from each other and the wider community - and from our mistakes! Ensuring every design is considered and well thought out.
Prototyping – You’ll use market leading prototyping software to build low and hi-fidelity prototypes which will be used for usability testing and to communicate design requirements to the wider project team.
User testing – The proof is in the pudding! We test everything! You’ll be involved in as many rounds of user testing as necessary until we get it right for our customers.
Industry trends – We’re a passionate bunch that want to stay at the fore-front of the UX industry, so much so that we made it one our objectives. As a team we make the time to see what’s going on within the UX community. We’re generally seen at any decent UX conference keeping an eye on latest developments.
From you, we need experience in the following
Sketching and prototyping, workshop facilitation, A/B testing, collaborative approach to design, Google Analytics and the ability to work with people from different backgrounds and knowledge of UX.

Likewise, if you’re unsure if the person you’re speaking to is genuinely an AXA recruiter or the job you’re ing for is legitimately from AXA, please get in touch and we can check for you. We cannot be held responsible for any interviews conducted without our knowledge and authorisation. If you’re unsure and would like some advice, feel free to get in touch with our recruitment team.
