Looking to take your first step into software engineering? Want to earn while you learn and work on innovative solutions that benefit the general populace on a daily basis? If so, you could be the Apprentice Software Engineer that our client is looking for.

About Our Client:

Our client guides important care moments by delivering vital knowledge to everyone involved in an individual’s health journey. They offer independent, unbiased and evidence-based solutions to create the ultimate patient journey, facilitate safe medication decisions and drive high-quality clinical performance.

In partnership with the University of Exeter, they are now looking for an Apprentice Software Engineer to join them in September 2018 on a four year apprenticeship and achieve a BSc (Hons) in Digital and Technology Solutions.

You’ll receive career support from day one: a designated manager, a mentor and a buddy to answer any questions you may have as you settle into your role and start exploring the world of software engineering.

Your Role:

As an Apprentice Software Engineer, you will learn how our client designs, develops and brings software solutions to market.

While you’ll spend the majority of your time in our client’s Exeter office, you’ll be required to attend the University of Exeter on three occasions for up to four days at a time during the academic year.

- Creating product code and performing code reviews for your team
- Learning about requirements analysis, specification definition, data analysis and project management

About You:

To join our client as an Apprentice Software Engineer, you’ll need:

- To have achieved (or be predicted to achieve) grades AAB at A-Level
- An interest in, and a desire to pursue a career in, software engineering (any previous experience would be great, but this isn’t essential)
- Strong communication and team-working skills
- An analytical mindset
- A great eye for detail
