Job Description:

The role

This is a rare opportunity to join and lead an already successful but growing division within an existing company. You’ll be responsible for leading the delivery of all projects and to build and expand internal capabilities.

UX Lead: Working with external designers, you will create UX solutions that balance stunning visual content with ease of use and drive the desired user journeys.

 

SEO: You will be responsible for two levels of optimisation – on-page optimisation and working with the marketing team on off-page optimisation. You will analyse clients’ goals and design marketing plans that deliver on these objectives.

 

Project Manager: You will work with internal and external stakeholders to ensure all website contracts are delivered on time and budget. Your objective will be to delight the website clients.

 

Key Resources: 

Development Manager: You will work closely with their talented and experienced development manager who manages a team of 10 experienced developers.

 

External Designers: You will work with their existing designers but will have the freedom to use new designers as and when required.

 

Head of Web Sales: You will work with their head of web sales to understand client requirements and support the sales process.

 

The package

This is an opportunity to join a thriving, forward-thinking company in which you’ll play a key role and work with some of the UK’s best-known brands. Benefits include:

  • Step up to lead and grow your own ‘start-up’ department to build your own team as soon as possible
  • Join a well-respected, industry-leading brand
  • Access to and continuous, fully funded training/events that will help you develop professionally
