Job opportunity at Enabled by Design: Online Community Manager

Enabled by Design logoHere at Enabled by Design HQ we’re on the look out for a super duper online community manager extraordinaire to join our small but (we like to think) perfectly formed team. Could you be the missing piece of our jigsaw puzzle?

Missing jigsaw puzzle pieceSo what is an online community manager?
We’re looking for that certain someone who can support the Enabled by Design team to reach out, engage with and grow its online community. This can be done in a number of ways including posting content on Enabled by Design’s website and social media platforms including facebook, twitter and flickr, forging links with other online communities with a common interest such as design, independent living, health and disability, keeping up-to-date and engaged with related blogs and blogging yourself, to name but a few.

Who are we looking for?
Enabled by Design was partly borne out of the frustration of jobs with flexible working conditions not being readily available. For me flexible homeworking is helping to remove some of the barriers I’ve experienced and for this reason we’d like to support someone else to work under the permitted work scheme too. Therefore, working hours available would be up to 15 hours per week, keeping within the rules given.

What are we looking for?

2. A 200-300 word blog post on what design for all means to you. The blog post should express your own personal writing style, so we can get to know you a bit better.
