IS Application Developer

Permanent, Full Time (37.5 hpw)

Salary £28,500 - £40,000

Supporting us to deliver 90% of our customer’s services digitally. That’s when it hits home.

We are on a journey as an organisation. A journey to become more digitally focussed, hyper efficient and disruptors across the sectors in which we operate. Our strategy is set, our direction is clear, what comes next is what we love the most, applying our skills and experience to innovate, design, implement and support information systems that deliver real business value, improve the way we operate and give us the competitive edge to do great things for all the right reasons!

We have an incredible IS team to help us deliver on our strategy, building homes, independence and aspirations and we’re aiming high. We’ve got a great team foundation to build upon but we still need more awesomeness, which is where you come in…

What makes us No. 33 in the UK’s Best Large Places to Work and gives us Investors in People Gold Standard? It’s our brilliant people and culture!

We have a fantastic opportunity for you to join us as our IS Application Developer. You’ll be working closely with the business to understand their requirements and how the web and mobile portfolio can support and deliver business benefit.

You will build high quality, innovative and fully performing software solutions that conform to coding standards and technical design. You will manage the activities throughout the full software development lifecycle, including design, development, transition, operation and continual improvement. You’ll ensure that all IT applications are well designed, highly resilient and cost effective.

You’ll report to our IS Digital Development Manager (we’re recruiting to that role too) and the team report to Malcolm, our Director of IS who’s a massive fan of psychological thrillers, loves to explore what makes people tick but isn’t particularly good at reading subtle hints (just tell it to him straight). He is also responsible for ensuring that we deliver the IS Services the business needs to succeed, driving continual service improvement and ensuring IS adds real value… so we’re pretty sure he’s got this, and with you by his side… you’ll do great things!
