Experience Level: Intermediate
We run a small IT support company, based in London. We have created websites for many of our clients and have many more to build so we are looking to find the right person to help us manage this aspect of our business.

The candidate would need a very good working knowledge of Dreamweaver, Fireworks (and/or Photoshop) and Adobe Contribute. Obviously, a good understanding of FTP and other website related tools is also needed. Additionally, it would be useful if the candidate was familiar with WordPress websites (or possibly another CMS).

As well as designing and building new websites, the candidate would be asked to download existing sites to their computer, update pages as instructed, find solutions when needed and upload and test changes. This would all be without very much supervision so we are looking for someone who handles instructions well and can do thorough work consistently and independently.

What makes a website useful and aesthetically pleasing is very subjective, so as part of the selection process, candidates will be asked to provide previous examples of their best website design work.

An hourly wage would be agreed, and work would be provided as and when. This position would probably start with a few projects and tasks to work on but could well progress into a regular work. There are quite a few projects on the horizon.

Please be clear that we are not interested in providing our clients with cookie cutter run-of-the-mill websites that look dated and formulaic. Our clients expect high quality, attractive and well designed websites so it won't be just a matter of picking a stock template and putting in some text. We are looking for someone with an eye for design, who knows how to put together a modern, professional and unique looking site.

The candidate would need excellent communication skills, and would need to be able to read, write, and understand English without any difficulty.

If you feel you might be a suitable candidate for this job and can provide us with a competitive hourly rate, please write us a brief note letting us know why you are suitable and provide 3 URLs to sites that you have made or been heavily involved with.

Please note, we can tell a 'boiler plate' response when we see one and we are not interested. We will automatically disregard your response unless you can:

- write us a little note explaining why you would be suited for this role in particular
- provide URLs of the three best websites you have personally built

Again, please - no boiler plate responses - they will be ignored.
