The Port of London Authority (PLA) are the Custodians of the tidal Thames. A Trust Port, our goal is to hand the tidal Thames on to future generations in a better condition. Central to our work is the Thames Vision 2035, the 20-year development plan for the river which focuses on increasing all uses of the Thames from port trade to travel, sport and recreation to cultural pursuits.
The river is the home to the UK’s fastest growing port and busiest inland waterway for passengers and freight. The next couple of years will be particularly exciting for the PLA, as we create and host the first Great River Cities of the World symposium in London, refresh the Thames Vision and deliver a major exhibition with the Museum of London.
As part of a team restructure to enable us to deliver the new projects, alongside a demanding ‘business as usual’ programme, we are recruiting for a Website Manager to provide management, oversight and transformative change of two websites (www.pla.co.uk and www.boatingonthethames.co.uk), the organisation’s intranet site and support the development of a new Thames visitor site. The aim is to provide dynamic, informative sites as an integrated part of our communications programme.
This role is expected to suit someone with experience of managing dynamic, content rich websites alongside broader social media channel integration. Knowledge of CMS, SEO and HTML is essential and you will be familiar with design software and an active user of social media. You will work closely with stakeholders across the organisation to secure buy-in for your ideas and to demonstrate best practice, championing the need for engaging content and re-writing where needed so strong writing skills are important.
To be successful in this position, you will need to demonstrate personal drive, a positive outlook, a collaborative approach to work, flexibility, the ability to make the most of stories/opportunities and a good eye for detail.
