Are you regularly frustrated by your role and want to work with a team who have established a successful process for building websites, led by a strong decision maker with a vision?

About the Role

You will be the team’s WordPress ‘Wizard’ or ‘Wizardess’, passionate about producing visually appealing WordPress websites that are cleanly coded.

Your natural flair for UI design will be backed up by strong technical abilities and a desire to always deliver your best work.

As well as delivering websites that delight customers, you’ll manage them too, with the help of our external specialist hosting team.

The role presents a great opportunity for you to create a whole variety of WordPress based websites, for businesses and organisations that want to present themselves effectively online, enabling them to stand out from their competitors.

By adding visual value and clever functionality to customer projects that they wouldn’t have perceived possible, you will help the company achieve a loyal fanbase of clients who trust us as their first choice in web design and development.

This role enables you to join a team with a strong commitment to building lasting client relationships, at an office based in Leicester, with options for home working.

By being quietly confident in your abilities, you’ll feel comfortable with dealing with clients directly, knowing that the proven process and Managing Director are there to support you.

Through your past experience you’ll be able to effectively balance value for the client and profitability.
