My client a world leader in the sporting industry are currently on the lookout to expand their team of contract developers at their new site in Manchester. They are looking for multiple C# application developers to work on a number of different projects and teams. The technologies is spread across Winforms, WPF and MVVM.
The ideal candidate would be a big sports fan who is passionate about the industry.

The projects will change depending on the team they are in but will involve maintaining and updating existing code into newer C#.

Exposure to other desktop development tools, including Silverlight and Winforms.
A big sports fan who wants to work closer to the industry.
