This role is about developing on such a wide and varied range of projects – no two will ever be the same. This role will suit someone who is happy to bounce around ideas, someone who is innovative, and someone who is happy to be kept on their toes. You will be required to work sometimes on a few different projects at a time, so you need to be the type of person that can cope with this!

Your role will be crucial in the delivery of all ICT tools that will enable collaboration and communication amongst their 1000 scientists.
