Great opportunities


We currently have some fantastic opportunities both on the permanent and contractor side. We’ve highlighted some below, but make sure you keep an eye on our website for all the latest roles

Education, education, education!

One of our long-standing clients for contractor roles in the education sector has asked us to fill 5 permanent roles on a sole basis. Based in Hackney, the client has just gone through a complete rebrand, and is entering a very exciting period in their development.

The 5 roles include a Project Manager, a Service Desk Manager , 2 Service Desk Analysts and a 3rd Line Infrastructure Engineer. If you are interested in any of these roles get in touch with our permanent team so we can tell you more.

Focus on the figures

We have an unusual requirement for a Programme Manager to work for a student accommodation provider in the South West. This client is about to undertake a £2.5M 2 year business change programme converting all their Excel financial accounting to Hyperion.

The role itself will focus both on implementation and on changing business processes (budgeting, forecasting, and financial consolidation). The unusual element is that the Programme Manager must also be a qualified accountant, due to the nature of the work.

If you are interested in this role, or know someone who might be suitable, get in touch.

Defence for the future

One of our Defence sector clients in the South West has just won the bid for a 10 year transformation programme. As a leading provider of infrastructure and equipment for military training, this organisation delivers mission critical services to the armed forces across land, sea and air.

We recently placed some business analysts with this client for their Discovery Phase, all of whom needed to have UML process modeling experience. We have also placed the Transformation Director on a permanent basis.

The client is now assessing the business applications, systems and processes that will be needed for the future (which will lead to additional role requirements shortly). We are already looking for a Data Analyst whose role will be focused around a new data warehouse and BI Systems, analysing the data on site to understand what is needed to be able to deliver the new systems.

If you are interested in the Data Analyst role, then please do get in touch, but watch this space for future developments!

Hidden gems – contractors available

This month, we are showcasing two brilliant contractors who will shortly be available for work.

Our first highly professional contractor is coming to the end of his project with an asset management client in Edinburgh. With extensive skills around trading systems, he has been gathering requirements and testing for a front office order management system migration from a thinkFolio platform to a Charles River (CRIMS) platform. His expertise on Charles River has enabled him to create documentation for components and business scenarios for the clients to use when testing the system. He also produced all of the gap analysis for the migration.

We also have a test analyst for retail systems coming to the end of his contract. Initially brought in to support the company-wide rollout of a POS system to carry out accreditation testing, enhancement testing and regression testing, this contractor has had his contract extended a total of 10 times. His experience on payment systems has also proved invaluable to the client, as they were able to use him for testing credit card payments across their new systems. He has integrated exceptionally well with the client team, and is now looking for a new opportunity.

If you are interested in either of these contractors, or have other roles you would like us to help you fill, do get in touch .
