Be A Web Designer Who Makes A Real Difference

You can build websites that deliver a great user experience and look fantastic, but have you ever wondered if the sites you’ve built make a difference to anyone’s life?

That’s what your job will be all about if you work at shmu.

Curious to know how you can be instrumental in making this a reality?

Help shmu amplify the sound of under-represented voices across the city, celebrate our communities, and tackle negative stereotypes through the power of digital media.

You’ll do this by:

  • Designing, developing and launching a new website that showcases shmu’s digital capabilities and range of activities.
  • Working alongside Connected Communities representatives to support them create and develop community websites for each of the 7 regeneration areas of the city.
  • Delivering training in website development and structured content alongside shmu’s Foundation Apprenticeship Delivery Team in schools.
  • Identifying opportunities for the creation of third-party websites, commercialising shmu's in-house capabilities.

You need to be a geeky, creative, communicator.

Geek: Passionate about your craft, it’s essential you can demonstrate web design experience and a varied portfolio of design and build projects.

Creative: Contribute to shmu’s creative direction and take projects from brief to completion by creating innovative designs and high-quality work while managing competing deadlines and demands.

Communicator: The ability to explain concepts and talk with non-technical people in a way that is collaborative and non-judgemental.

To really understand why this is the most creative and impactful job available to web developers in Scotland right now, request a candidate pack from Emma Hunter,

It includes the detailed job specification along with supporting background information about shmu and where this role sits within the organisation, why shmu's community initiatives are so important and how these projects are funded. In addition to being clearer about whether this opportunity is right for you, this information will support your application and subsequent interview preparation.
