We are recruiting for a PHP Developer to join our expanding digital team and are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, hard-working, keen to develop and ready for a new opportunity. Working as our in-house specialist for our back-end platform, you will be taking our system to new levels with an ambitious improvement and innovation plan, that will provide the perfect opportunity for you to demonstrate your skills and expertise. 

To be successful in this role, you should have a minimum of two years of experience using web development technologies, including PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and Git. Experience with PHP outside of its use within frameworks is also a plus, as is experience working within a large application codebase. In addition to strong technical skills, we are looking for someone who is organised, has strong problem-solving and analytical skills, and is able to work well with others. A willingness to learn and stay calm under pressure are also important qualities for this role.
