- 4 days per week

All over the world people are coming together with shared concerns about shrinking supplies of cheap energy, climate change, inequality and economic instability. They are taking action to build a future with much less reliance on fossil fuels and greatly reduced carbon emissions, creating just, caring and connected communities living within environmental limits.
Transition Network exists to inspire, encourage, connect and support communities as they self-organise around the transition model.
This is a brilliant opportunity for an enterprising web manager to join an inspiring organisation at an interesting point in its development.
Taking up a pivotal role within a small, motivated and creative staff team, and connecting with people around the world, you will help develop and deliver a web service capable of supporting a grassroots movement as it spreads and evolves.
Having previously stretched this role between web and comms, we have now decided to focus it solely on web management to pick up the pace of developments and make sure that our planned ‘Transition Network Version 3’ service is user-centred, beautiful, effective and ambitious.
We have some strong pieces in place – a popular existing website, a great technical group, various stakeholder groups, project requirements and UX tracks underway. However there are a number of key decisions still to be made – framework, hosting, migration plans etc. – making this a great moment to come in and play a leading role in shaping and delivering a very significant project.
We are looking for someone who can elegantly lead multi-disciplined teams through a variety of decisions, bridging the ‘client’ and ‘technical’ divide to help us develop a streamlined, flexible service with the users at its heart. You will have strong project management skills and an interest in being part of a team which is exploring and modelling new ways of working.
