You will work with a range of stakeholders/audiences to design and implement innovative ways to engage audiences online as well as design and deliver training to staff and student leaders in how to get the most from our web platforms and to develop the reputation of CUSU as a leader in digital engagement.  You’ll deliver and maintain website projects for a number of clients, across a range of interesting and exciting ventures, both student and public facing.

This role is ideal for someone with a proven track record of delivering high quality web projects from brief to completion and who is looking for a technically challenging role.
