About us

This position sits within our sales and marketing team, reporting into our Senior Marketing Manager. It supports our three ‘pod’ teams - these are our client-focused, mini business units. 

cxpartners’ mission is to have a positive impact on people’s lives by helping organisations become more customer centric and thrive. Often our work breaks new ground, and we innovate to achieve those outcomes. From our partnership with Google that has supported over 200 brands to measurably improve their UX maturity - to Samaritans where we designed their online chat service, which has helped those in crisis express suicidal feelings at twice the rate as other channels. We’d like you to be the kind of person who can help us to tell these stories and to do more of this work.

We’re a great place to work – you’ll love the environment, the people and the way the company looks after its staff. 

cxpartners is made up of an incredible, diverse range of people. We're an equal opportunity employer and prize diversity as a strength. We’re keen to ensure we’re designing products and services that work for everyone, so our team needs to reflect that too. 

We particularly encourage applications from different underrepresented demographics. We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, colour, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, disability or any other legally protected status.

Please don't be put off applying because you aren't a perfect match for our job description. If you are excited about the opportunity and think you can achieve the outcomes we are looking for, but aren't sure if you tick every box, we'd still love to hear from you.
