Freelance web designer required

As part of our near-term strategy to significantly increase the BAA’s online presence, Council has decided to ask for expressions of interest from a suitably qualified person to take up a freelance web designer role. This person would be responsible for a radical overhaul of the Association’s website using open-source tools, the management and maintenance of our online presence and the commissioning and management of content.

Council envisages offering a 3-year contract, reviewed annually for a fee in the region of £12-14K per year. We would expect the necessary commitment to average around 15-20 hours per week although workload will be variable.

The successful applicant will have a large amount of autonomy to work towards the goals set by Council and we would expect this activity to start sometime in the 2nd quarter of 2012. Membership of the BAA is not essential but a good knowledge of amateur astronomy, the Association and its objectives will be expected.

To express an interest in this exciting opportunity and to receive further details please send an e-mail to before Friday, 10th February.

The British Astronomical Association supports amateur astronomers around the UK and the rest of the world. Find out more about the BAA or join us.
