Website Designer for EARMA public website  [1]

19 December 2016

EARMA represents the community of Research Managers and Administrators (RM&As) in Europe. EARMA has around 200 individual Members and 100 Institutional Members, so the expected number of users is around 1000 persons and growing.

The EARMA Website (  provides a public face of EARMA, presenting news, blog, events, membership information and general information about EARMA.

EARMA, as part of its improvement of services to members, is currently rebranding the corporate image and upgrading its web services. As part of this, we are inviting bids from professional web designers.

  In particular, we require the successful bidder, in consultation with the EARMA Communications work group, to carry out the following:

  • Using the new EARMA logo and design style guidelines rebrand the complete public EARMA website. This would require
  • The development of a prototype of the new EARMA Web pages.
  • A complete redesign of the home page with the aim to improve the user experience for our members and potential members.
  • Transfer of the approved prototype to the live site.


The successful bidder will work with WordPress together with our chosen CMS, Wild Apricot, to modify existing templates for a re-designed look and feel on the basis of the existing corporate colours and logo. It is envisaged that a prototype of the new pages would be ready to launch in time for our Annual Conference in Malta starting on the 24th of April.


Each tender should specify the following:


    Price for completion of the prototype, design, construction

    Price for transferring the prototype into the new site (estimate in hours)

    Previous experience of web design, including samples of their work


Any previous experience of working for a membership association or similar organisation would be desirable.


The tender shall be sent to no later than the 18th of January. You are welcome to contact Anne Katrin Werenskiold, Chair of the communications work group for additional information.
