Frequently asked questions

What does a front end developer do?

A front end developer is responsible for building the user-facing part of a website, app or software programme.

They use a combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript to implement a design and engineer the parts the user sees and interacts with.

Do I need a qualification to become a front end developer?

No. Typically, a natural flair for writing code, good design awareness and a portfolio of work examples will serve you better than a qualification.

However, there are some companies that may favour candidates with a degree in computer science or software engineering.

What are employers looking for on a front end developer’s CV?

Most look at your technical skills first. Highlight the core languages, tools and frameworks you specialise in and give an overview of previous projects.

If you’re a front-end developer who boasts a ‘good eye for design’, producing a clean and visually striking CV will help back this up.   

What is the typical contract day rate for a front end developer?

Contractors should have solid experience and on this basis can charge £350 a day and above.

The rates available will vary widely based on the scope of the project, and the skills and responsibilities required.

Mid-weight |  £350 - £450

Senior |  £450 - £550 

Lead |  £550+

What is the typical permanent salary for a front end developer?

Experience, responsibilities, skills, JavaScript ability and the industry you’re in will all impact on your salary.

Different employers expect different things from a front-end developer. A mid-level developer in one company might be managing junior team members. Another might only have management responsibilities at senior level. Meanwhile, one company might see four years’ experience as mid-level; another might consider this senior-level.

A front end developer can expect to earn:​

Junior |  £20,000 - 35,000

Mid-weight | £35,000 - 50,000

Senior |  £50,000 - 65,000

Lead |  £65,000 +
