Here at Lloyds Banking Group, we value Design Research. We're a large, experienced team of 20+ researchers. We shape product and service development. Everyone has different strengths and passions - maybe you're an expert in accessibility, skilled in quantitative research, or have a solid background in user experience (UX). We encourage you to test and learn new ways of doing research. We foster a culture of mentoring, collaborating and learning from other researchers.

Working in an experienced multi-disciplinary design, product and engineering team, you'll develop and lead the research strategy for a key area of our business. You'll report into and be supported by a research lead as well as the wider research community. You'll be responsible for managing the research plan and roadmap for your service or product area. You'll deliver research to solve customer problems, unlock new opportunities and guide what is created. You'll enjoy working on research across the product development lifecycle, from generative to evaluative research.

What we need from you:

  • Experience working closely with design and product teams to identify and prioritise the right research questions
  • Create research roadmaps to keep the team on track, helping set both short term and strategic direction

  • Synthesise insights in an impactful and actionable manner to generate a shared understanding of user needs and opportunities

What we like…

  • Experience combining qualitative and quantitative methods
  • Ethnographic experience (using techniques such as contextual enquiry or diary studies)
  • Experience with accessibility research and/or vulnerable customers
  • Willingness to share your expertise and learn from others
  • A desire to learn a lot about pensions and investments
