Be part of something ‘outstanding' for yourself and children

While predominantly known for the role Cafcass takes in supporting 135,000+ Children and Young People in family court cases, what may be less well known is that our targeted use of technology is a key factor in ensuring we are at the forefront of our sector.

We're a digital organisation rated ‘Outstanding' by Ofsted in 2018, and we continually invest to drive performance and efficiency; we have wholly cloud-based technology stack that is essential in supporting and enabling a diverse, flexible and highly mobile workforce. Technology is a critical enabler for our staff, and we are proud to work hand-in-hand with colleagues to provide the tools and service that ultimately benefits children and families.

But there is always more to do. We mostly work with a range of private sector partners to deliver our IT service, but we also have an in-house development team. And we're expanding to reflect the scope of our work and its importance to the organisation and are looking for an Lead Developer to join our fast-paced and innovative team.

In this position you will play a key role in:

  • Leading the in-house IT applications development team, providing a business-focused service
  • Prioritising and allocate the work of the team, supporting the Development Manager in the management of the backlog
  • Developing in-house applications to meet business needs.

Does this sound like you? If so let us tell you about what we're looking for in the successful candidate. You will have experience of:

  • Leading and managing a team of developers
  • Developing SharePoint applications using CSS, JavaScript and jQuery and be familiar with Microsoft solutions such as Power Automate
  • Working with external service providers
  • Database design and development, reporting tools and languages including SQL and SSRS.

We are completely flexible on location and while it is reasonable to expect some national travel may be required at times, this isn't expected to be a predominant feature.

We hope this gives you a strong sense of what we're looking for but if you click through to our careers pages, you will find out more about our IT team, the projects you may be involved with should you join us, access the formal job description and a range of benefits you will be eligible for.

Finally, we would like to give you an indication of dates we are working towards (although they are subject to change):

Last date for applications: Sunday 11th October
Informed of initial outcome of your application: By Monday 19th October
Initial interview: Between 22nd and 30th October
Final assessment: Between 5th and 13th November
