Beverley in a few words

Lead UX researcher with 11 years experience
I have in-depth knowledge and experience of the latest UX research tools and methodologies to understand user need, both in terms of strategic planning and practical implementation. I’ve worked with 100s of clients across the UK, including: Confused.com, Admiral, many councils and branches of the NHS. I am a confident communicator, happy to present research insights and rationale to clients as well as ensuring the research insights and goals are carried through to completion within a team. I can run user testing with my eyes closed. I have lead on projects of all sizes as well as leading large scale standalone research. Having worked in an agency, I’m accustomed to dovetailing with a wider multidisciplinary team and have experience of leading a team of researchers.

Work at a strategic level feeding into project proposals, pitches and to consult with clients to analyse their requirements, plan, implement and present UX findings using a range of research tools:
- Surveys
- Remote and moderated interviews
- Ethnography
- Card sorting
- Focus groups and stakeholder workshops
- Google analytics and content audits
- Remote/moderated usability studies
- Heuristic evaluation
- Competitor analysis
- Information architecture: personas, user journey mapping, user stories, sitemaps and taxonomies.
Communicate and present recommendations and rationale clearly and professionally.

City of Canterbury, England, United Kingdom

November 2011 - July 2022 (10 years and 8 months)

It's my job to be objective and really get into the nitty gritty of what makes website user's tick. I love the Internet and learning; I studied web design at night school whilst working to further enhance my knowledge. I also love meeting people and problem-solving. Suffice to say... within user experience I have really found my niche in the world of web development. I have a range of tools to find out what makes your users tick and will choose the right ones to fill any gaps in knowledge to ensure the structure and plan for the design and build are effective.

Bev was amazing on the projects we worked with her on. Her experience was vital for delivering a quality set of UX fundamentals to base our design decisions around. Using a mix of organisational engagement and customer interaction, Bev was able to use her research skills to offer invaluable insight to feed into the next stages of multiple projects for a range of clients from Local Government, SMEs to large blue chip organisations. Bev is our goto for any UX research needs :-)
