Web Developer (Wordpress)

There is an influx of Wordpress work coming in over the next month.  A mixture of permanent and freelance roles but one of the main positions I'm looking to find someone for is for an independent Digital Agency in the heart of Richmond who are looking for a Web Developer with significant Wordpress experience to join them.

Initially, a 3-month gig to finish around Christmas, with a view to extend the contract or make it a permanent role in 2020. 

Start date is a little flexible at this point, we'd love for someone to start around the 1st October.
