User experience

A degree in Music Business first introduced Nathan to digital processes and concepts, which is how he finds himself in the digital recruitment space. But outside of work, music still plays a big part in his life. He plays the bass guitar and enjoys singing, but thankfully for the rest of us, the singing is confined to the privacy of his own home (unless he’s feeling brave at an open mic night after a few drinks). In the rest of his spare time, Nathan is either keeping active at the gym or chilling at home, unsuccessfully trying to find something to watch on Netflix.

A quick start guide for the UX Contractor

At Futureheads, every consultant operates a dual desk. This means that we cover both permanent and freelance vacancies and are therefore exposed to both sides of the market. Thus, we’re often there when practitioners are considering making the switch from one to the other. As I alluded to in an earlier article, we’re beginning to see a few people make the switch from contract to perm. These are in the minority though, as most are looking to switch from perm to freelancing.

Happy new year, folks! As the market begins to pick back up, we thought it would be useful to provide our take on salaries and day rates across permanent and contract work in the ux job market. 

#UCD16 - Being human in the tech world

As a relative newcomer to the Futureheads family, this was my first taste of the annual User Centred Design (UCD) conference. This was the fifth UCD and Futureheads has partnered with the event since its inception. The two-day event featured multiple streams, each with industry thought leaders covering a range of topics. I frequently found myself torn between multiple subjects, wishing I could somehow attend both – a feeling shared by others in attendance, and one that is a true testimonial to the overall quality of the event.
