A working knowledge of Agile Scrum is an advantage, but is not essential.You will have a portfolio of successful web sites or systems available to review.
The position relies on a good analytical approach to problem solving coupled with excellent attention to detail. Due to the nature of the role we need you to have excellent communication skills as you will be dealing with colleagues at all levels, providing both verbal and documented responses of both a technical and non-technical nature.

You will reap the benefit of working within a supportive team that has many success stories in terms of colleagues progressing through the ranks.  Alongside our attractive basic salary and excellent working environment, we also reward our employees with numerous benefits and perks that include:
•          24 days basic leave (plus 8 bank holidays & 3 concessionary days)
