PA Consulting Group
Competitive salary

Job description

Your challenge
You'll help us bring fresh, bold thinking to today's digital reality, where it is no longer a back-office overhead but a front-office value creator. The rise of the Agile methodology means developers must now combine technical expertise with soft skills such as negotiation and collaboration. So while you can expect to work with cutting-edge technology (such as cloud computing, big data and mobile applications), you'll also have the opportunity to develop client-facing and consultancy skills.

Digital at PA Consulting Group
Digital innovation is transforming business, creating opportunities to serve customers in new ways and to run organisations more efficiently and more profitably. PA works with clients to develop their digital vision. We then deliver solutions with agility and speed to ensure businesses benefit rapidly.

Your role in Digital
Joining us as a Software Developer, you’ll work in collaboration with business analysts and software architects to provide innovative software solutions to our clients' most critical business issues. We'll look to you to provide high-level technical designs and to develop software, both in-house and in partnership with clients, suppliers and contractors. You'll also work closely with test specialists and service managers on software releases.

As your career progresses, you can expect to work across all areas of the development lifecycle, from strategy to implementation, and to take on assignments in different sectors. This will provide you with broad base of experience from which to build an outstanding career.
