Web Developer (Course Delivery)

Grade 04S: £22,417 - £25,941 per annum

Closing date: 25 September 2020

We seek a reliable and well organised web developer to join our Technology-Assisted Lifelong Learning (TALL) unit. This full-time post is offered on a fixed-term basis, for one year in the first instance.

The Web Developer (Course Delivery) plays a key role within the unit’s course delivery team preparing existing online courses for launch each term. Courses are launched according to a fixed timetable and it is essential that each course has been properly edited and signed off by the agreed deadline. This involves the course delivery team working through an established sequence of quality assurance, editing and approval processes to ensure that the courses are accurate and up-to-date.

The primary duty of this post is to implement in XML all content changes so that the online materials are ready for the start of the course. Occasionally, the work will also require preparing images and other media. Courses are mostly delivered through the Moodle Virtual Learning Environment, as well as other online services such as Google Maps and Survey Monkey.

To be considered for this role, you will be a methodical and accurate editor of XML with a good eye for detail, strong personal time management skills, and the ability to deliver high quality work to fixed deadlines. You will be able to use your initiative and take responsibility for solving problems, understanding when to work independently and when to escalate issues to others. You will be joining a friendly but busy team; therefore, it is essential that you have good communication skills and enjoy working collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary environment.

All applications should be made online. Please submit a CV and cover letter as part of your application.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 25 September 2020.

Interviews are scheduled for 9 October 2020.
