Avanti Recruitment are working with a leading Digital Agency based in Oldham who are currently looking for a Wordpress Developer to join their technical team.

This is an excellent opportunity offering great work life balance, career progression and the chance to work on high profile projects.

- Cross-browser testing: Ideally with device agnostic development
- Good comprehension of web accessibility
- Website building: We always look to provide lightweight and lightning-quick websites for our clients.
