Front-end Developer

Job description
This is a UK based contract and as such, you are required to have the Right to Work in the UK. Evidence of your Right to Work will be checked prior to interview.

As a talented and creative Front End Developer we can think of no better use for your skills than helping to shape the websites of the world's leading independent conservation organisation in one of the most crucial decades in human history.

Our world is under threat like never before. We need a global deal to save our planet and for people to come together to reverse the decline of nature and prevent catastrophic climate change. As a Developer we want you to use our digital products to change the hearts and minds of individuals, businesses, and government to help deliver on our mission of a world where people and nature thrive together.

Working collaboratively with colleagues you will identify and create the best content for users based on their needs, while delivering against organisational objectives. This will include developing front-end code for websites as well as maintaining and adding functionality to several digital products, including www.wwf.org.uk and footprint.wwf.org.uk.
You will work with the UX team to create new web components, ensuring outputs meet brand guidelines, coding standards, accessibility standards, and usability best practice. You will create HTML/SCSS/JavaScript that will bring designs to life across devices as well as improve on our existing front-end code from an aesthetic, performance and maintainability standpoint. In addition, you will build prototypes to demonstrate new ideas and interfaces, working closely with our Back End Drupal Developer.

To play your part in saving our planet you must have excellent knowledge of creating responsive, mobile first designs using HTML, SCSS, JavaScript/jQuery. You will have experience of wireframing and mock-up tools as well as the ability to turn ideas into prototypes.

You will be the sort of person who is able to operate independently or as part of a team and enjoys working a busy environment and meeting deadlines. You will also be a problem solver with the capability to think laterally and learn new technologies.

Knowledge of Git as well as experience of using Drupal and working with working with frameworks such as Vue, React and tailwind as well as designing for complex content management systems would be an advantage.

If you are passionate about making our world a better place through your work, we would love to hear from you. Please visit our website via the link, complete the online registration and submit a copy of your up-to-date CV with the Supporting Statement highlighting what makes you a good fit for us.

Every role at WWF is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe in the potential of everyone regardless of; sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other aspect that makes you, well you. Here at WWF, we are committed to conscious inclusion that helps cultivate an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. We believe that the more diverse we are the better we become; this brings us together and empowers us to develop, engage and inspire; and critically to help build a future where people can live in harmony with nature.

Our policies and benefits reflect the importance of people being able to have a good work-life balance and being able to bring their ‘full self’ to work.

Our world needs you like never before. We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world and we could be
