Why Clik Hired Me as a Designer

Clik lacked in-house design expertise. They wanted a designer who had experience working on mobile apps and services, with a focus on end users. They also needed someone who could work to tight timescales, flexible requirements, and who could closely collaborate with their in-house developers.

Goals for the Clik Jobs Application

Clik had some clear design goals for the Clik Jobs application refresh:

  • Retain a high level of satisfaction with the Clik Jobs app so it continues to lead in its niche.
  • Increase engagement and boost efficiency for all users, especially those without a development background, like field service engineers.
  • Identify and resolve issues and gaps in app functionality and usability.
  • Focus on a more complete, inclusive, and accessible user experience.

It was important to balance any improvements to the app with previous development and lessons learned — this involved changing key parts of the application, together with refining the areas that were already working well.
