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

Mid-weight | £35,000 - 50,000
Senior | £50,000 - 65,000
