Do you believe in building a UK Zakat platform which genuinely puts users first?
We’re looking for a Head of User Experience to join our team during an exciting period of growth. This is a brand-new role which will help us continue to transform our online Zakat-giving experience and the way we deliver support to Zakat recipients.
We believe local Zakat has the potential to change the lives of Muslims in need and help those in the community being held back by their finances. We’re passionate about providing the only platform with a national reach that lets people get their Zakat to those who should be receiving it in the UK. Since our launch in 2011 we’ve enabled tens of thousands of Muslims to get their Zakat to those who need it up and down the country.
After nearly ten years’ experience connecting Zakat between givers and recipients in the UK, we’re currently going through a process of digital transformation and committing to a more user-led approach to everything we do.
As the Head of User Experience, you’ll play a key role in making sure this process is based on user insights and data, confidently championing the user so their needs and requirements are considered throughout.
You’ll need to be user-led with strong design skills and excellent technical understanding. You’ll be personable, empathetic, organised, and have a good eye for detail. Strong research and data-analysis skills are essential. You’ll be tasked with creating high quality, user-centred design solutions which are ready for developers.
You’ll be working with a team of enthusiastic and dynamic people with a strong connection to the NZF mission, so it’s important you share this passion and drive for the cause.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person to transform the way we bring the NZF platform to life for Muslims up and down the country.
