You will be working in the IT Department remotely or physically as and when required (Minerva House, London Bridge). As part of this contract, you will be working initially with the Head of IT and senior developer on 3E integration projects.

We are looking for a 3E developer to:

Current Pandemic Situation and How the Team Works:

This will undoubtedly change as and when Government guidance changes. The successful candidate must be able to work in the office if and when required.
