Webmaster wanted.

The site in question is http://lallans.co.uk The website belongs to The Scots Language Society, a registered charity whose aim and purpose is proclaimed in its title. They publish and promote the Scots language in various ways including producing CDs, with a current catalogue of some 250 titles, publishing a biannual magazine, and sponsoring and/or promoting occasional language collogues or meetings.

I am the current webmaster and have been for about a decade. There has been no falling out. The post is unpaid and I have done it purely out of interest and because I am able, but as a bus-pass holder I feel it is time for a change.

Duties are not onerous. Apart from keeping Joomla up-to-date, all that is required is an occasional new page for a CD or for the latest issue of the magazine. In all the time I have been webmaster I have never had to stir beyond my home and indeed have never actually met any of the other members of the society. Such contact as I have had by email or occasionally by phone have been entirely cordial. In case it might be of interest, my principle contact lives in Arbroath.

Anyone up for it?

So the position is Unpaid.
The offer allows to hire somebody from abroad?

Yes. But your question contains an implicit contradiction. 'Hire' suggests money whereas your opening sentence is a succinct and accurate summation!

No apology needed. I'm sure your English is a hundred times better than my 'Colombian'!
