Contract Type
Full Time
I am focusing my resourcing efforts this week on 2 of my best clients. For more information on these opportunities, the businesses and the teams you would be working in, please feel free to get in touch with Mike Walton at Avanti Recruitment in Reading.

The first is a company in Guildford, based in Surrey Research Centre, who are building software that will make tremendous improvements to the NHS.

The software enables Radiologists to view a digital image of an MRI / CT Scan, without having to physically be there to look at it. I was actually amazed that in 2019 this kind of technology was not more readily available to specialist medical professionals throughout the NHS.

The second company is a Sunday Times fast track 100 company which means they are one of the fastest growing technology companies in the UK. They are a fintech company based in Fleet, Hampshire.

Company / Role 1, MRI / CT scans, Front End Developer required, £40k to £60k depending on level, they are still using AngularJS so this is more for a Developer who wants to work on a product that will help people and genuinely save lives, rather than a Developer who wants to be working with the latest JavaScript framework.

Company / Role 2, Fintech, 2 Senior Software Developers required, £55k to £75k depending on level, the role will be focused on Node.js / JavaScript and 60 / 40 split towards back end Development. I have placed a few people there in the last year or so and they have been from a mixture of OO programming backgrounds including PHP, Node.js and C#.

I have enclosed the job descriptions below;
