Web Developers wanted for 2013/14

We’re looking for a new web team for 2013/14.

The Mancunion has been the student newspaper at the University of Manchester since 1969, and prior to that since the 1920s as the Manchester Independent.

The paper is one of the most respected publications in the UK, with a circulation of between 5,000 and 10,000. In addition, Mancunion.com is a successful website, with close to 140,000 unique visitors so far for this academic year.

Benefits for students wanting to get involved include practical experience of running a successful website, teamwork, working in media and the chance to win awards; particularly The Guardian Student Media Award for Website of the Year.

Web developers would be tasked with working with the Web Editor to continue the gradual improvement of the website, helping to introduce new features onto the site, and carrying out maintenance on the website to ensure that it runs smoothly.

Experience required:

  • Previous experience of using WordPress
  • Web development in PHP
  • Experience developing themes in WordPress is a bonus

Those interested in this volunteer position should send an email with ‘Web developer application’ in the subject box detailing their experience to next year’s Editor Jonathan Breen on [email protected]

APPLICATION DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY 12TH JUNE
