Description of the goods or services required
The Growth Company wishes to appoint a service provider to enter into a Contract for the delivery of website development and maintenance services.
In 2018, the Growth Company won the contract to deliver the Made Smarter pilot across the North West. Made Smarter is looking to work closely with a creative and strategic web developer to reinforce our web presence through creation, improvement and maintenance of the Made Smarter website, https://www.madesmarter.uk/.
This will include a continued focus on ensuring the design and development of the site delivers a modern, professional and attractive interface capable of showcasing numerous services and events; hosting rich media content engaging with a diverse audience of ambitious business leaders and further developing online networks to help facilitate and connect communities to new opportunities.
The Made Smarter website is predominantly CMS manageable, but would expect to work with the developers on SEO, PPC and related digital and online content & campaign strategies.
For website maintenance, the successful service provider will be required to provide on-going support through regular meetings (phone/online/face to face) to work through ‘snagging’ lists, manage fixes, undertake minor updates and ensure the effective day-to-day operation of the site.
