Role - Junior Systems Developer

Location - Manchester (Salford)

Salary - £20,000 - £23,000 Dependant on experience

Work Pattern - Hybrid, a mix of office and home working.

We have two roles for Junior Systems Developers - these roles would suit 2021 Graduates or School / College Leavers. Out of the two roles I would suggest that 1 will be a University Graduate and 1 would be a School / College leaver.

You will be working with a variety of key technologies which include:

  • SQL
  • Python
  • Dynamics 365
  • PowerBI
  • Open GI / Databases

Training can be provided on these, but it would certainly be advantageous if you have seen one or more of these.

About you

If you are a confident communicator, hold a degree in a computer science or have done an IT qualification within School or College, love problem solving, enjoy learning new skills and have the ability to work towards tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment, this job is for you.

In this role you will be working with technologies that are not necessarily on most university curriculums such as Dynamics 365, SQL based Databases and OpenGI therefore we are looking for people with the application to learn. Full training will be provided but you will be expected to self learn and solve problems using your own research.

Please note for this role we are looking for people to start ASAP and the position will be 2 or 3 days in the office per week. The office is based in Salford.


  • Learn and train to become fully conversant in Open GI - training provided
  • Responsibility for the SQL-based MI database which sits behind Open GI, running and issuing monthly compliance/I.T./sales reports as required
  • Developer in house software applications, including primary IT Systems
  • Write code which promotes operational efficiencies and improves the accuracy and output of client facing documentation
  • Joint responsibility for all code which resides in client facing documentation - enhancing/adapting this as necessary
  • Become fully conversant in Dynamics 365 CRM - again training provided
  • Learn about other coding platforms and software solutions as appropriate
  • Help to develop bespoke in-house software solutions, integrating with Open GI, Dynamics CRM and other existing I.T. systems
  • Proactively identify technical weaknesses and areas of potential improvement in the back office and I.T. operations
  • Assist in the implementation of new I.T. systems from external providers
  • Prepare materials for, and participate in, the training of staff in the use of existing and new software systems where appropriate
  • Investigate and research developments and advancements in I.T. to ensure that the company takes advantage of such
  • Produce and track key performance indicators
  • Monitor and audit data quality


  • Good mathematical / logical ability
  • Skills in Excel
  • Attention to detail
  • Highly motivated with an appetite to self develop.
  • Any knowledge of writing SQL code would be an advantage but not an essential
