It means we can be more creative and also more responsive to our clients. We now have an opportunity for an experienced Front end Developer to join one of our most established teams. From a technical point of view, we’re keen to hear from applicants who have either worked in a creative or digital agency, or a software development house. You will be able to show us a strong portfolio of work which portrays your individuality, technical knowledge and coding skills – you should be able to clearly demonstrate strong capability in all aspects of Front End Development; but especially PHP and WordPress. Professionally and personally, we’re looking for a team player. You should be a great problem solver. You’ll be asked to make recommendations as to the best technical approach – sometimes this is going to allow you to flex your muscles and also learn new things, sometimes you’re going to be looking for the simplest and quickest solution – we’re not about reinventing the wheel or the use of fancy tech for the sake of fancy tech – we’re about producing something solid and reliable for our clients... 31 July 2015 16:04:20 +0000 Senior Digital Planner http://www.thedrum.com/jobs/details/100975/Senior%2520Digital%2520Planner.html Our Digital Planners take elements of account handling and digital project management roles, pull in a history of hands on development and combine their skills in a position that is at the heart of our teams.

The work that we do is in the healthcare sector, so you will ensure that what we produce is suitable for the end user, both in terms of accessibility and usability. We’re looking for someone who is excited by technology – and applying technology in an effective way. Sometimes it’s going for the simplest solution, sometimes it’s about showing off – in this role you’ll understand when it’s appropriate to go down either route and you’ll have the knowledge and willingness to try new platforms and approaches to attain the end goal. This isn’t a hands on development role, but you’re likely to work sometimes with external providers, so the ability to assess the quality of what you get in response to a brief is key, as is the ability to go back to a developer that hasn’t quite hit the mark and explain what needs to change in order to satisfy what we’re after.
