Work with us…

We are currently looking for a Web Applications Developer to join our team.

Full details about the post can be found on our website but I just wanted to add a few words about Web Services and where we are going.

Why join us?

At Edge Hill we’ve taken an innovative approach to Web Communications and our sites reflect this. The Hi Applicant Community website demonstrates our use of web 2.0 technologies and our commitment to opening up communication with our users and keeping informaton clear and simple.

We’re also committed to developing services based on user requirements and our Go portal (to be re-launched later this month) reflects this. Students (and staff) will control the information in their own portal based on user preferences.

Why do we want you?

Our applications team is growing. Under the leadership of the Web Applications Project Manager, Mike Nolan, the team will be re-developing our corporate website in coming months to create a much more functional and usable interface for our users. Building on from our experiences with the Hi site we want to ensure that we can serve information to the user dynamically and position our website as the best in the sector.

We are looking for a strong, creative developer to work on these projects to ensure we can meet our targets. Our projects are creative and innovative – we are quick to adapt and flexible enough to change when required – we want someone who can work with us in this fast paced environment.

Why Edge Hill?

We’re the fastest growing University in the Country. We are flexible and innovative and when it comes to the web we’re doing some really exciting stuff. We’re a growing team and we have a clear vision of where we want to be.

If this sounds interesting to you then read the job description or contact me for further information.

  1. Not to be mercenary or anything but you want “A highly skilled developer with a proven track record in developing and managing complex web projects” for 21k ?

  2. I love what you’re doing at EH – it’s about time public institutions understood new communications systems (web 2.0, blogs & social media) as well as you do. But I’d tend to agree with Phil – I expect you’ll get a good graduate with one or two years experience for that pay grade – but is that the same as your requirements?

  3. As a collaborator and internal client, I’m as keen as anyone that the post gets filled with a good person. I believe that a talented individual will step forward, attracted by the opportunity to work in a groundbreaking team. There are some other benefits – great public-sector pensions, nice environment, staff development possibilities and of course the new IT Services coffee machine.
