Canary Dwarf continues to grow and we’re now really excited to be looking for people to help us on our journey.
We are a small business, and we want to to stay small. But we have an increasing customer base and since our move to the high street late last year, we have been literally overwhelmed with enquiries for all our services: web design, marketing and training. We also have recently secured some exciting projects and are going to be very busy over the coming months.
Canary Dwarf has built a reputation for providing a complete service for small businesses, organisations and events. We help them with everything: planning, designing and building a website, to creating a marketing strategy, supporting it through paid search, organic search, social media and email marketing.
Our favourite content management system (CMS) is WordPress and we have over 80 sites now on this flexible platform, although we also have many sites on Joomla, some on our old bespoke CMS, and some ecommerce systems on VPASP, ZenCart, osCart and Prestashop. We provide a range of web and email hosting services from simple shared servers, hybrid cloud servers and virtual dedicated servers as well as webmail, hosted Microsoft Exchange email and Google Apps for Business.
On the training side, we offer group sessions fortnightly, and regular one-to-one coaching for business owners who want to progressively improve their own digital marketing skills. We also host a monthly WordPress meeetup in Forres, which is part of WP Scotland.
What kind of skills are we looking for?
We are looking for someone with all-round ability, but specifically to help us with:
- WordPress content management
- WordPress front end design
- WordPress back end setup and development
Additionally, if you have any other web skills, we would like to hear from you, as we have occasional opportunities for work in other areas. The work will be part-time initially, and will be mostly on-site, so you will need to be able to work in our office in Forres and from your home. We regularly get asked by designers and developers outside the area if we have work to pass on, but we strongly believe in supporting the local economy.
