Contract Description

My established web design agency based in Hastings, East Sussex is expanding our freelance team to include an additional WordPress expert, to work virtually with our in-house team on various projects. We work with a global client base of businesses, charities and public sector contracts, demanding high quality, fully responsive websites with an exceptional user experience and, thanks to a recent burst in contracts, we are looking for a great team player to join the remote-working, UK-based team we already have.


Here 's how we do things:

1. our design team creates the layouts to meet client brief

2. our dev team chops this up into CSS

3. our tech team (this is where you fit in) builds the site on our host server in WordPress, including re-usable blocks and templates to make it easy for our clients to further expand the site after handover.


Working alongside 3 members of our in-house tech team, we 'd like your ideas and input on animation / javascript effects, image selection and cropping, font styling to ensure consistency throughout the site, and all the regulars like making enquiry forms work, adding pop up boxes for special offers, etc. BUT we 're working at the top end of the market and don 't want one hundred plug-ins stuck in - we 're looking for someone with some coding skills to create custom blocks where necessary and know how to unpick a problem. Experience of SEO for WordPress sites would be a nice advantage but what we really need is a reliable creator of good clean code, with great written English, working on a self employed basis and looking for a regular retainer income with potential to earn more with additional hours in busy periods.


PLEASE NOTE: although working from your own home or office, you MUST be physically based within the UK due to data protection implications of some of our projects.


Initially offering 2.5 days / 20 hours per week, working during office hours (9am to 5pm BST) so you can actively collaborate with the rest of the remote team; this role effectively gives you a regular income, which you can then top up with your own freelance work to your heart 's content so a nice steady income and plenty of interesting work to do with a friendly small team all working remotely in the UK. This will involve a daily meeting with our Project Manager and teammates via video link, plus access to communicate throughout the day with other team members as collaborative working is essential.


This role would really suit an established, talented freelancer looking to add some regular retainer hours to their working week. We 're really looking for a long term, ongoing relationship with a great developer with an eye for good layout and high quality results. If this sounds like you, please send CV and recent sample URL 's of your work to info@fatpromotions.co.uk.


!!! NO AGENCIES PLEASE !!! (We get that you 're keen and you 're a business too but we really only want to hear direct from candidates thanks)
