Head of Digital Development | West Midlands | up to £60,000

Jonothan Bosworth Recruitment Specialists are working with a well respected and well established full service digital marketing agency. Their HQ is based in the West Midlands, and they currently embark on an ambitious journey, which will see them grow considerably over the coming years.

If you live in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Telford, Shrewsbury, or any of the other surrounding areas, this could be a fantastic career move for you.  The opportunity to work from home, on occasion is also apparent.

THE BASICS:

As our clients’ organisation has evolved, so too have their customers’ needs, and the seismic changes that have come with digital transformation over the years has seen a more sophisticated and in depth set of requirements from customers, which has led to this job opportunity being created.

As the Head of Digital Development, you will work closely with the Development Director to:

– look at customer proposals and help bring their vision to reality.

– translate complicated to simple.

– demonstrate a solid understanding of the digital landscape.

– keep all internal teams, on track, on the same page, and on budget.

– – –

If you can confidently scope, build, project-manage, aid the development and design through to execution of a customers’ proposal, we would like to hear from you TODAY.

THE TECHNICAL:

Several years of working in a similar role is ideal, so too is an understanding and/or appreciation for MySQL & PHP (or similar), whilst encompassing the ability to introduce other industry-leading languages, where necessary.

Mobile application development experience, in iOS, Android or any other mobile platform would be advantageous and an ability to accurately estimate development time for projects, and create project documentation including scoping, technical specification requirements and testing is vital.

You do not need to have been a coder in a previous life – but a solid technical understanding of digital development is imperative to be successful in this role.

THE PRE-REQUISITES:

Our client works across a broad range of industries, covering hospitality, entertainment, fashion and much more, so there is never a dull moment.

This eclectic mix of customers means that the new Head of Digital Development must be well versed, in terms of the digital landscape – ready and willing to offer market knowledge, with an outstanding attention to detail.

You will be working on bespoke and complex web platforms and digital software solutions. This includes working with large, SME and start-up businesses and you will be a major influencer in all stages of the technical development process from concept to final delivery.

In working alongside the senior management team, you will help to build new features and improve the user experience and recommend dynamic technical solutions to meet ambitious business objectives, whilst always acting as the voice of reason.

THE CONCLUSION:

The need to manage lots of moving parts is important, (such as multiple APIs and integrations, database structures and customer communication). If you already have experience in providing technical development costs and project delivery timelines & frequent updates to senior management on the latest developments for live projects – whilst being able to confidently present digital solutions at internal and customer meetings you will be highly sought after.

Excellent inter-personal, verbal and written communication skills and an enthusiastic & self-motivated outlook is likely to result in an offer of employment.

If you live in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Telford, Shrewsbury, or any of the other surrounding areas, this could be a fantastic career move for you.  The opportunity to work from home, on occasion is also apparent.
