Our main offices are in Maidstone, but travel may be required to other offices and locations around Kent.
Additionally, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requires most employees to work at home if they are able to do so. You will be fully supported to do this, with the necessary induction, management and equipment.
Training and development
- 2:1 degree or equivalent qualification in maths or science
- a GCSE Grade C or above in English language or equivalent (new grade 7-9)
- a GCSE Grade C or above in mathematics or equivalent (new grade 7-9).
As part of this graduate programme there is a requirement to undertake the DevOps Engineer (Level 4) Apprenticeship Standard. We are therefore unable to accept applications from those with an equivalent or higher level IT related qualification, for example an Undergraduate or Masters Level qualification in IT.
All overseas applicants must have the UK equivalent. See our equivalency table to check if you meet our academic requirements.
We are an equal opportunities employer and we represent a diverse community, therefore we welcome applications from people of every race, disability, gender, age and sexual orientation. There is no upper age limit for applications.
The selection process allows candidates to draw from experiences within their academic or working career. So you may be a recent graduate, or you may have workplace experience already.
Unfortunately, due to the vast numbers of applications we receive we are unable to accept applications from candidates who achieved a 2:2 or lower.
