  • Proficiency in managing and formatting web content using Drupal, the open-source content management system on which our public websites are built.
  • Intermediate-level knowledge of HTML and CSS coding.
  • Understanding of the principles and application of accessible web design.
  • Advanced understanding of MS Office 365, including SharePoint functionality and design, particularly in relation to corporate intranet applications.
  • Project-oriented self-starter with the ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment.
  • Ability to work independently and as a team player under tight deadlines.
