With numerous truly exciting projects on the horizon for 2021, the consultancy is partnered with The Candidate to recruit a Principal Consultant into the team. As the Principal Consultant, you will be offered a varied role which includes providing a consultancy approach to face to face meetings with internal technical stakeholders, to building unique functionality or systems. With full autonomy for your clients and building solutions which you see providing true value, the Principal Consultant will have the flexibility to introduce new technologies, frameworks and more to create bespoke solutions.

As a technical stack, the consultancy has been known to offer a wide range of solutions across the full stack range. Whether you are bias towards Java, C#, PHP, JavaScript, Azure, AWS or a real Polygot, we want to speak to you. Our team are searching to speak to candidates ranging from Senior Developers through to CTOs for this role. The recruitment for this role is as far away from the typical ‘tick boxes’ style approach which most of the industry looks for, it is based around you as a person. Your technical knowledge; your personality; your drive; your vision and your motivations. To be successful, it is essential that you are a proud member of the technical community, able to understand the most complex technical issues whilst also conducting face to face meetings with technical leadership for clients.

Currently, the whole group are working on a fully remote basis due to COVID-19 but ideally plan to have a part remote / part office-based environment. With a head office based in Manchester, the successful candidate must be able to head into the office from time to time, or on ‘as a project requires’ timeline. Ideally, you will be based in the North of the UK and able to commute here and there to Manchester.
