This is an important branch of the Federal government; you will be working within the Digital Technology and Communications branch of this government agency. 
They have been around since 1984 and works with over 16 million users! There is a lot of fascinating data and many interesting design problems to solve here.

This role mainly focuses on User Research and Design and will be the primary designer on the team. There is a small UI and Visual Design aspect to the role which is more of a nice to have but only accounts for about 20% of the role.
Working closely with the Digital Communication Manager, the development and delivery team and internal stakeholders, you will lead the creative solution development across a number of the services and products.
Ideally, we are looking for someone who has worked with local, state or federal government in the past and understands how to effectively communicate with, engage with and navigate the large number of stakeholders usually involved in these large projects. Effective communication is just as important for this role as the actual UX experience.
The role is a 3-month contract to start off with the possibility of extension for another 3 months.

5+ years of UX experience with a folio of work you can talk us through
Passion and curiosity for finding great design solutions
Empathy and compassion to be a champion for the user
Strong and confident communication and presentation skills
Experience managing senior stakeholders within large organisations
Proven user research, analysis skills with an ability to balance user needs and expected business outcomes
Experience with prototyping tools such as Figma, Adobe CC, Mockflow or Axure
Positive energy, cheery disposition and a growth mindset
