We came, we walked, we walked some more

Last week, 26 of us laced up our trainers, put on our t-shirts, and headed down to Wimbledon to walk over 400km together for Macmillan Cancer Support, with each of us doing either a 10km or 20km walk. It was a great chance to enjoy some of the great outdoors, and spur each other on - but most importantly, we're so proud to have raised £1,361 for Macmillan.

Futureheads celebrates our fourth year on LSE 1000 companies to inspire Britain report

We're absolutely delighted to find out that we are listed on the London Stock Exchange’s 1000 companies to Inspire Britain for 2018. Making this list even once is something we're so proud of, but this is our fourth consecutive time on this list! Last year we used the term hat trick, and a swift google search has taught me that our fourth appearance on this list can be referred to as a 'haul'.

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 +
