Web Redesign Project Manager (24 month Fixed Term Contract)

Full – time (35 hours per week)

The College’s website is a key resource for engaging with and communicating with our members and stakeholders. As such it is vital that it is tailored and optimised to the needs of our 95,000 users per month and the College’s strategic aims. Since its launch in 2011, the site has had substantial development to produce new features, including recent production of a new personalised homepage for our members, integration with our CARE customer relationship management system for member applications, payments and other tasks. However the software platform (Drupal 6), structure and design have not fundamentally changed.

The College is at an existing point in our digital development. A project to redesign the approximately 3,000 page site will deliver on a number of objectives including revising the information architecture and design, to better link up our digital estate, making the site mobile responsive, upgrading our software and functionality, and providing a better experience for our staff editors, encouraging great content and messaging for the site.

This is an exciting role with the College and you will lead the project to redesign the College’s site, working within the current Information Systems and Web & Publications teams (reporting at different stages of the project to the relevant team) and engaging with a wide variety of stakeholders from within the College and our external audiences. 

We are now looking for an exceptional candidate who will take this strong progress to date further forward.  The College will offer support and supervision, but we need someone who has the ability to innovate, to build strong alliances internally and externally and who can inspire and articulate innovative solutions to continue to improve the service we offer across the College.

The post is at grade 6 and the salary offered for this post ranges from £36,581- £44,505 pro-rata per annum (all appointments at the College are usually offered at the first point on the scale).
