Phoenix Group

Here at Phoenix, our main goal is to help people in securing a life of possibilities.

We achieve this by providing unwavering support to our customers throughout their retirement journey. As the largest long-term savings and retirement company in the UK, we offer a wide range of pensions and savings products to cater to individuals at every stage of their savings life cycle. When it comes to fulfilling our purpose, user experience is absolutely vital. We truly appreciate the immense value that a good user experience brings, not just in the digital world but also in various other areas.

That's why we collaborate teams across the business, including customer insight experts and behavioural scientists, who specialise in supporting vulnerable customers, ensuring accessibility, and helping those who may not be as confident with digital tools.

If you're curious to learn more about our mission and the opportunities in the UX team, we would be delighted to see you at our stand.
