Are you looking for your next step to develop your digital and web career?

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing team at one of the largest academic departments at the University of Warwick.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about websites, with excellent technical and creative skills.

Your primary focus will be to develop the WMG website, working with key stakeholders within the department to deliver this. You will use your technical knowledge and skills to develop a website that is innovative and delivers on the WMG brand / core values.

Previous experience of managing a large customer-facing website, along with developing wireframes, sitemaps and coding, and managing web optimised projects is required. You will also understand the importance of user-centred design.

Using your creative skills, you will be able to develop infographics and animated gifs to support the WMG key messages and narrative. You will also need to be familiar, and comfortable, with working to brand guidelines and with external agencies.

To support our online presence you will need to work with stakeholders to improve SEO and report on monthly analytics to meet content objectives.

As part the Marketing and Communications team, you will also be liaising with academics, researchers and project managers so you will be comfortable working with people across a variety of roles and at all levels, ensuring that stakeholder objectives are met. Excellent communication skills are a must.

You will be educated to degree level, and experience of working in Higher Education is desirable. In return, we will provide you with a great range of benefits that include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.

At WMG, we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Bronze Award and the University of Warwick holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognizes the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
