Who we are looking for
A Systems Developer to join the Application Systems team who will be responsible for the development, configuration and implementation of improvements to our systems across our IT Services department.

This is a great opportunity for someone with past IT Services experience who has had exposure to internal tools with a desire to learn systems development, or an experienced developer who has an interest in internal systems and automation.

This role is eligible for inclusion in the Company’s hybrid working from home policy.
Preferred skills and experience
Commercial experience within systems or tools development.
Experience in the creation and development of new business systems, as well as their maintenance and implementation.

Knowledge of IT Service Management products and applications.
