This is an excellent opportunity to join the IT team of a well know brand during your placement year.
You will start by working on technical support issues in order to better understand the IT systems. Day to day, your role will be to develop solutions for the business environment, as well as systems analysis, testing, and being involved in the entire life cycle. While this role is predominantly development based, any strengths in areas such as testing and coding can also be utilised.
You will be part of their 7 strong team, and as such there is the opportunity to get involved with more than just your own Job Description, if you are proactive and willing to learn about the business and the rest of the team functions.
You will be studying towards a computer science or related degree and looking for a sandwich placement during 2019-2020, with a keen interest in software development.
The role will be predominantly development based, so knowledge of java and C++ will be of benefit.
You will be comfortable with programming languages. The company uses RPG and CL so you will be willing to learn these once you start in the role.
You will be a logical thinker, who is keen to get involved in many different aspects of the IT team.
