As a Senior User Researcher you'll lead on the insights into how our users interact with our service. You'll use a variety of methods and innovations to create this insight, and  turn this into clear output for service designers and the wider design team. You'll manage user research strategies using resources available across Citizens Advice. This could include visits to local Citizens advice to talk to users of our service as well as analysis of data and reports on how people use our service.

You'll also be managing a small team of user researchers and together you will direct the design of a service to create the maximum benefit for the people we will help every day.
