Save the Children UK believes every child deserves a future. In the UK and around the world, we work every day to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. When crisis strikes, and children are most vulnerable, we are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We ensure children’s unique needs are met and their voices are heard. We deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach.

The role holder will also support our commitment to celebrate diversity, challenge inequality, and build an inclusive environment for every one of our employees so we can better represent the children we protect.

Main Accountabilities

The Full Stack Word Press Developer key duties will be to:

  • Configure, design and develop enhancements/features, and fix bugs on multiple WordPress sites (including Ecommerce and resource hubs)
  • Work in both of the product developments above, in close conjunction to the Lead Developer and Developers working within the Development Scrum
  • Undertake/co-ordinate testing on any upgrades and developments to ensure live operations are safeguarded
  • Assist with web development and associated technologies
  • Develop proof of concept solutions and enhance iteratively to full production applications

Aptitude

Save the Children UK is committed to diversity and equality of opportunity in all aspects of our work both external and internal. We strive to be an inclusive employer and particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups such as returning parents or carers who are re-entering work after a career break, people who are LGBT+, from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, with a disability, impairment, learning difference or long-term condition, with caring responsibilities, from different nations and regions, and from less advantaged socioeconomic backgrounds.
