Web Developer

We are growing our web team and have an opportunity for a developer who is enthusiastic to build feature-rich bespoke websites. Orphans operate from two sites, in Leominster and Skylon, Hereford. Most of the team works from one of our offices but we are comfortable with flexible working including home working having the dominant share.

This role calls for advanced knowledge of modern PHP development and practical experience developing websites and web apps. Understanding of Laravel and JavaScript is essential, and experience developing for Drupal 8+ and/or maintaining web servers would be notable advantages for any candidate to have. We are keen to hear from candidates who are enthusiastic about the latest web development and will take part in keeping our company on the leading edge.

Ideally, you will have experience of linking into other software through custom links or web APIs. Our developers have a close working relationship with our designers and customers throughout each project's lifespan so the ability to scope requirements, operate as part of a team, and communicate ideas clearly is essential.

We are looking for someone who is eager to expand their knowledge of the industry so they can grow with the business and take a lead on increasingly more complex projects. You will be given lots of opportunities (and the necessary support) to learn new skills on the job and have access to any reading or online training you may find useful.

The salary levels will be commensurate to a mid-weight developer.


  • PHP development
  • JavaScript
  • CSS & HTML
  • Programming to handle large datasets
  • An eye for visual accuracy
  • Good communication
