Software Consultant – Bath – £40,000 / £45,000 – Experience required around software – An interest in Fin-tech is helpful - Fully Remote working

I’m working with a Fin-Tech company based in Bath that are looking for their next Digital / Software Consultant. They have a track record for taking on junior consultants & with the help of their internal training & development programme, progressing them through the ranks of management consultant. For over 16 years they have recruited from operational or technical roles in the industry, and through rigorous training and development, as well as practical experience, they have become highly effective consultants.

They pride themselves on a philosophy of consulting with integrity – with their consultants ideally coming loaded with real industry experience within software development / design. Other profiles of interest could include solution architecture experience or be looking for greater challenges through a move into solutions design / architecture.

You will be working directly with their clients, ensuring that their IT projects successfully deliver what their business actually needs and demonstrating the advantages of the specialist approach this client takes. Their services range from defining Enterprise level IT strategies through to single system solution design and software product selection. Some work will be alongside other consultants, but you will often be working independently. Though, you will always have full back up from experienced members of the team.

  • Ensuring that clients are not purchasing “shelf ware”. The deliverables must have a valuable and significant life beyond their delivery.
  • Getting to know the regulatory frameworks that govern and safeguard the industry.
  • You’ll be published in the press and contribute to building thought leadership
  • From proposals and RFPs through to contracts project initiation
  • Understanding the component parts of an effective consulting business
