During my ten years in recruitment – five of those at Futureheads – I’ve heard some great candidate stories about their amazing welcomes, receiving lots of care and attention that made them feel very welcomed and wanted.

Do User Researchers need a portfolio?

Andrew Rogers

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?"
