Description

Volunteer Cartographer required to help breathe life back into the East Dunbartonshire Asset Map website. We are looking for someone literate, methodical and comfortable with computers to help enter and format content for the website.
The OPAL partnership requires a Volunteer Cartographer to help us rebuild the East Dunbartonshire Asset Map website. This involves some writing and editing skills, a methodical approach to categorising and describing website content and being comfortable with using a computer.
Initially there will be quite a lot of work involved in populating the website - you will have help! - probably for a period of about 3 months, but once that is completed there will be a smaller role involved for maintenance and updateing of the website.
The Asset Map website is based on WordPress, the most popular blogging platform in the world. Training will be provided in how to use WordPress, how to use categories and tags for search engine optimisation and how to format Assets appropriately
