UX & UI Recruitment continues to challenge both Clients & Agencies

Intelligent People, a leading Marketing, eCommerce & Product Management recruitment agency, experienced their busiest ever month in July 2011, driven by demand for candidates with online User Experience (UX) skills including IA, Wireframe Design, Web Design and Customer Experience Management.

Chris Mason, Co-founder and Director, stated “At present the biggest challenge our Clients face is User Experience (UX) recruitment as demand far outstrips supply and candidates are receiving multiple offers.  One of the reasons we’ve been so busy is because we have a unique footprint of UX candidates and are able to leverage our relationship with them in order to prioritise our Client’s roles. Clients understand the direct impact strong UX has on customer conversion and are willing to move quickly when they interview the right candidate.”

When asked how Intelligent People have developed such a strong network of Ux candidates Chris replied “As Intelligent People are a specialist Marketing, eCommerce & Product Management recruitment agency we can anticipate where the next skills shortage is likely to be and be pro-active. Following the recent (and current) shortage in CRM it seemed obvious that UX recruitment would be next and consultation with our Clients confirmed this. For UX recruitment our consultants network and headhunt to compliment our advertising and SEO campaigns and we offer a generous referral bonus* to help build our network.  We’re often in contact with passive job seekers who do not apply to adverts and so offer our Clients the advantage of first access.”

Demand for UX recruitment is still high and we have a number of great opportunities in online retail, travel, media and gaming. If you have UX skills and wish to explore new opportunities, please contact Intelligent People, the specialist User Experience recruitment agency, on 01727 736690.
