This could be your chance to join a rapidly expanding organisation who are continually investing huge amounts of money in their Consultants to keep them at the forefront of the market. Career progression is endless for those with a drive to succeed; they continually promote to ensure they don’t lose the best!

I am on the hunt for strong performing,client-facing Principal Technical Consultants who possess the thirst to further their career and actually revels in the opportunity to work on high-profile, incredibly interesting European and worldwide projects!

My client has a stellar reputation, providing predominantly financial software solutions that have been cited as “visionary” by Garter. They have a non-corporate environment – constantly providing challenges and opportunities to progress their employees and heighten their exposure and technical ability.  Yes this role does involve travel, you are either going to be someone that shies away from this type of commitment or grabs it with both hands with enthusiasm and determination – if you are the later then you will be rewarded generously (much higher than market rate- they want to attract and keep the best!).

I’m on the hunt for enthusiastic, intelligent consultants to come onboard who are going to represent the brand name of my client and passionately enjoy working on an excellent range of solutions they implement.  You will ideally be coming from a strong educational background; having achieved a 2:1 or 1:1 from a reputable university, probably having studied a Computer Science or Mathematical discipline, and have a strong technical background surrounding DBA/Database skills (SQL, PL/SQL, ETL, SQL, Teradata etc or Java /C#/ Python).

My client implements their widely recognised solutions into FTSE100 /500 firms across multiple industry sectors including: Financial Services, Digital Media and telecommunications. Within the Principal Technical Consultant position you will hold the following responsibilities:

  • Set up development, test and production environments
  • Management of migrating product related objects from one environment to another
  • Develop / advise on load scripts & control scripts
  • Perform handover, transfer of knowledge to client technical development
  • Perform performance analysis and tuning of the process and database objects

Unlike other Software Vendors the team sizes for Projects is typically around 6, meaning you are working in a close-knit team, being afforded much more responsibility and gaining much stronger exposure.

Their share price didn’t rose by 115% in the last year, they are working with cutting edge tech and have the best team onboard – why would you not want to join.
