You will be responsible for interpreting and constructing well considered, 100% reliably responsive, technically fabulous front-end web work using CSS, HTML and Javascript.

In addition to front end creation and editing, you will need strong PHP experience and be able to work with MVC PHP frameworks such as Laravel.

You should be able to approach all development projects with a creative and open-minded approach in order to contribute to digital projects that deliver outstanding results.

You must be able to use your own initiative to identify issues and apply solutions to problems. Keeping abreast of the constantly changing world of digital is a must and opportunities to train and learn will be provided.

Knowledge and experience of the following is required HTML 5, CSS 3, PHP (5+ years), CSS pre-processors: SASS, LESS, Javascript (Vanilla, jQuery or other libraries), responsive front-end frameworks (Bootstrap, Foundation), task runners (Gulp, Grunt), package managers (Yarn, NPM), version control (Git) MySQL, Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator.
