They have aspiration to be the leading provider within their sector in the UK, within in the next 18-24 month.

As a programmer, you will be responsible for taking on a wide ranging role supporting their internal IT needs, and working closely with their marketing department. With the high growth predicted this role comes with clear progression. With the potential to move into a team lead position, or a managerial role, should this be something that is of interest to you down the line.

The right person for this position will have previous experience in a programming or development role or have a degree in a relevant discipline. You must have strong attention to detail and excellent multi-tasking abilities.
