We are looking to recruit a new member of staff to work at our client's Product Development office in the pleasant, leafy surroundings of Mobberley near Knutsford, Cheshire. Fully accessible with local parking.

You will be joining a small, growing team and (with your colleagues) will be responsible for the ongoing development of both proprietary technologies within the Case Management and Workflow Management fields and bespoke client development projects.

You should be a good team player, but able and happy working under your own initiative. You should also be happy communicating with clients to gather requirements for customisations to existing applications or new developments. In addition, you will also be getting involved with bespoke developments that we undertake for clients.
