Wanted: Technical admin for Virtual Lancaster


Virtual Lancaster is seeking a new volunteer technical adminstrator for our website. We are looking for someone to take on the technical side of keeping the site online and doing any work needed to develop the site in directions we might want to go in the future. If we can't find such a person, we won't be able to maintain the website. 

We owe a great debt of thanks to our current admin who, after several years, is having to reduce his commitment.

We are looking for someone who has the capacity and enthusiasm to keep Virtual Lancaster online and develop it as a modern, standards compliant website. Specifically, this would be someone who has the following skills:

  • Virtual Lancaster is based on the Drupal 7 content management system, so experience with this would be an advantage.
  • Coding skills in PHP and ideally Javascript.
  • Website design skills in HTML and CSS.
  • Knowledge of modern web standards and the ability to develop the site to these standards.
  • Linux based system administration skills.

VL is a not for profit website dedicated to serving the local community.  It is independent and wholly owned and operated on a shoestring by unpaid volunteer community members, with a mix of political views (and none). It is always open to new members. To find out more about Virtual-Lancaster, our background, aims and how we work, please visit our 'about' page.
