User experience

As Account Director, Andrew works with our key clients and ensures that our recruitment teams deliver the best possible service to them. With over 10 years of recruitment experience covering technology and digital sectors, he’s more than qualified for the job! After hanging up his brightly coloured football boots and the subsequent folding of his beloved Rogers Rovers FC, he now spends his time at the golf course in search of getting his handicap down to 5, although becoming a father may scupper this plan temporarily… He is also often found at the FH table tennis table ready to take on anyone who dares challenge him - what he’s not telling you is that he’s had training from his mother-in-law who’s a European champion!

UX London | experimentation, onboarding and new perspectives

UX London is always a calendar highlight for us, and with this year being its tenth birthday, we certainly weren't disappointed. I went along for the first day and had a great time juggling being on our sponsors stand, enjoying the amazing food, and seeing some of the talks and workshops. 

Do User Researchers need a portfolio?

In the past 18 months, we have seen the demand for user researchers explode and it is great to see businesses finally take this part of the design life cycle seriously. The contract market has become a very lucrative place for researchers. This is partly down to the government sector paying attractive day rates but this has snowballed into other industries as well as impacting the permanent market. In the past five years, research has always played second fiddle to the more recognised UX Architect role but now they are on a level playing field, if not slightly edging it. One question we are continuously asked is "how do I showcase my projects and do I need to be creating a portfolio?"
