Jobs at CAST

Join our lovely team

We currently have one role open:

Web Designer (freelance contract)

We're looking for a freelance web designer to help improve our websites over the next few months. We expect this project to require 20+ days over the contract period.

Type: Freelance

Start date: ASAP

End date: 31 March 2021

Location: Remote (we have people all over the UK and some abroad)

Applications close: 30 November 2020

About the role

We have two main websites (this one, and Catalyst), which run on Webflow and are in need of some polish. You’ll be helping Cecilia, Sonya, and David in our Comms Team with:

  • Designing and implementing new pages for new programmes up to 31 March 2021;
  • Reviewing existing pages to make them work better and to make them more accessible;
  • Taking user research and analytics insights and using them to improve pages, particularly the home page(s);
  • Developing our overall CAST and Catalyst website design and architecture;
  • Working with the wider CAST and Catalyst core team to keep the pages up to date.

About you

We’re looking for someone who is confident with all parts of the design process, from rough sketches and wireframes through to functioning webpages. We work in design sprints;  sometimes there’ll be a very clear cut task to update a certain page, other times you’ll have freedom to come up with a design for a new section.

We’re primarily looking for a designer. We don’t expect you to also be an artist, a writer, a programmer, a user researcher, or an SEO whizz but some ability in these areas is always useful.

We use Figma, Webflow, Google Analytics, and Animoto so familiarity with these specific tools would be ideal, but if you’re familiar with other similar tools, that’s fine too.

Required skills 

  • Confident with all parts of the design process, from rough sketches and wireframes through to functioning webpages

Ideal skills

  • Experience working with non-profit organisations
  • Experience with Figma, Webflow, Google Analytics, and/or Animoto
  • Experience with SEO, user research, or graphic design.
