What does it involve? I have overall technical control of our web site.
I maintain the current site and ensure that it's as up-to-date as possible.
I'm also developing the new site, which should go online soon. Mostly, I look at how we can use the various technologies available to ensure that our new web site is the best it can be. We use a design firm for the look, but the technology is down to me.
How did you get the job? I was working at Equiinet over the summer in desktop publishing, while I did an engineering course at Imperial College.
There was a vacancy for a web master here and I wasn't enjoying the course, so I applied and got it.
Best points? Having a free hand to influence such a vital part of the company.
Worst points? Keeping my knowledge up-to-date and having to know so much.
Salary scale: pounds 15,000-pounds 20,000.
