Zero Waste Scotland Website Development Projects

Zero Waste Scotland are undertaking 3 separate projects as part of a wider website development plan.
A recent move away from parent body WRAP (Waste & Resource Action Programme) to become a separate organisation has propelled Zero Waste Scotland to review and make changes to two key websites: Zero Waste Scotland (Corporate) and Resource Efficient Scotland (Delivery programme operating under its own sub-brand).
This development work aims to reflect the growing breadth of organisational priorities, and provide leading, useful and respected websites to promote our work and support our stakeholders.
Underpinning this work is a requirement to agree and develop a strategy for user management and journeys across Zero Waste Scotland’s multiple websites. We are seeking to establish clear relationships between our ‘mother brand’ and sub-brands, including consideration of user journeys which allows for seamless transferal between digital assets.
Zero Waste Scotland is therefore looking to contract a developer or multiple developers to support and deliver our vision for two leading websites.
Contractors are invited to bid for individual or multiple parts of this work:
The first element, Lot One ‘Multiple site UX & User Journey Planning’ must be completed before additional work takes place and shall shape the approaches taken to UX development work in Lots Two & Three.
Lot’s Two ‘Re-development of Zero Waste Scotland Corporate Site’ and Three ‘Re-development of Resource Efficient Scotland Campaign Site’ should be delivered in tandem – any contractors wishing to undertake both elements of work should demonstrate sufficient resources to deliver both projects simultaneously.
