Application Closing Date:6th June 2022
We are currently recruiting for a Web Developer to join our growing Marketing Team
Bransby Horses was founded in 1968 by Peter Hunt; his lifelong passion for horse welfare continues as the charity works hard to be flexible in its approach to meet the growing demands on horse welfare charities. We continue to rely entirely on voluntary income which is derived predominantly from long term relationships with our supporters. As the needs and behaviour of our supporters change, we must plan and adapt to ensure good quality communication that considers the platform and is consistent with our culture and brand.
With the Bransby Horses website at the forefront of our online presence, it serves as a wealth of information on our welfare and rescue work, site events, numerous ways visitors can support us, and a whole lot more. Recently rebranded, there is now a focus on developing the website’s functionality to meet the immediate and future needs of the charity. Working alongside the Communications and Marketing Manager, this role will develop and maintain the current website, producing a roadmap for improvements over the next 18 months to meet the charity’s objectives.
The post holder will ensure the website keeps pace with the latest digital fundraising and engagement opportunities, and where appropriate, that these are integrated seamlessly with our site. They will also keep abreast of web and digital developments that will help support the Communications and Marketing team to deliver their objectives. Responsible for the maintenance of the existing website, and when appropriate the implementation of a new website, the post holder will work with different areas of the charity to provide support in all aspects of the site, from design to functionality, ensuring best practice and relevant compliance.
The ideal candidate is likely to be educated to Bachelor’s degree level in an appropriate subject, with evidence of specialism, CPD, further study and/or additional qualifications in a relevant subject such as computer science, informatics, software engineering or web design and development would be desirable. They must have previous experience in a similar role with strong knowledge and skills as outlined in the job description.
