Job Description

We are a trust duly registered in Zimbabwe, that operates as a hybrid entity with five mother initiatives, all with their own sub-identities. We are looking for a talented Web Designer to create amazing user experiences for our stakeholders, partners and the public. The ideal candidate should have an eye for clean and artful web design. We are not looking for manipulation of templates and themes provided by different CMS and website creating platforms like WordPress. We are looking for someone willing to put in the work in hard coding and develop a unique website that speaks to our identity. We plan to integrate our own podcast, a publications library, a blog, and news in our site. More time will be spent on the varying menus that slightly differ for each of our initiatives and custom badges we want developed.

We know exactly what we want our site to look like and we are looking for a designer to code it to life. From our side we will also share our content for our pages, all 35 of them, we will not leave that to you, we know what we want to publish as part of our story and how we want it published. The successful candidate will be able to translate high-level requirements into interaction flows and artifacts. They will be able to transform them into beautiful, intuitive, and functional designs. Zoom meetings will be arranged with three prospective candidates (applicants) to dive into more detail about the project. A stable internet connection and good communication are a must.
