About the role

User researchers plan, design and carry out research activities with users that help teams get a deep understanding of the people that use apps and services. This research informs policy, proposition, service, content and interaction design so that services work well for users and achieves policy intent.

UP is also working with other teams to help them experiment and customise the user experience in new and more refined ways.
