Estimated Time: 30 - 40 Hours Over 8 - 10 Weeks

We're looking for a web developer/designer who can consult with us on the projects we have in mind, figure out how best to develop these, and deliver them. We currently host our website on Squarespace, which has very limited functionality. We are looking to move to WordPress to allow for interaction features, and need assistance to do this while building some of the other features we want to put in place. Essentially, our website aims to be able to facilitate interactions between creative organisations and young people, by providing organisations and young creatives with the ability to upload their profiles, and a personalised dashboard for young people to see opportunities relevant to them. There are also other basic features we are looking to implement, which I am happy to discuss further.

Working location

We are based in Auckland, so ideally you would be based in Auckland too, although we will consider applicants from outside Auckland. We work occasionally out of an office in Auckland's CBD, where you are welcome to join us. We are flexible with hours of work.

Proposed project steps with time estimates

We would like to have this website ready for beta testing by the end of August, with the final website completed (shaped by feedback received from beta testers) by the end of November.

1. Brief and discuss requirements (1 hour)
2. Review of website and existing requirements (2 hours)
3. Develop plan for new requirements (3 hours)
4. Build website, import existing content and develop new content (20-30 hours)
6. Review and edits made based on feedback from beta testers (4-5 hours)
7. Handover of website to management (2-3 hours)

What We Have In Place

We currently have our website on Squarespace, so all of the current content is able to be transferred easily (it's all just copy and images). The bulk of this project will be building the infrastructure to support logins for organisations and young creatives, as well as personalised dashboards for users.
