You must possess a passion for what you do - excellent, standards compliant, cross browser front end development. Your ability to work with designers and developers using your clear and friendly communication skills is key. If you have Drupal Theming skills - great. If not - we will train you in one of the finest open source platforms around...

To apply for this role you will need to have:

About the role

This role is all about creating quality front end deliverables. You will work with designers (in-house and external) to turn a creative deliverable into a web standards compliant, validated xhtml/css front end. Over the coming months - depending on your level of Drupal theming expertise we will also train you how to create Drupal themes by combining your front end skills with Drupal's theming layer. This is an excellent opportunity to upskill in Drupal or to improve your existing Drupal knowledge.

You will also be involved in, and have a voice and input into, the strategy, scoping, planning and testing phase of the project life cycle. You will also work with our tester who will write test cases to help you validate any deliverables. The team is there ready for you to fit neatly into if you have the skills...
