IT Services Vacancies in Birmingham

Category: Job Finding
IT Services Vacancies in BirminghamAdvanced Computer Software Group (ACS) is a leading provider of software and IT Services to the UK public, private and not for profit sectors. In 2014, Advanced won Tech Company of the Year in PwC’s UK Tech Awards and was ranked in the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50, which recognises the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the UK. Gartner has also ranked us third largest enterprise software supplier – and we’re still growing! 

We are looking to grow our teams UK wide, in all areas of our business, from Sales Consultants, Customer Support Technicians, Software Developers to Marketing trainees and Payroll Administrators. 

For these roles we aren’t looking for people who are the finished article, we’d love to find someone with potential who we can help grow and achieve their career aspirations. You don’t need a huge knowledge of the IT sector, but you will need an enthusiasm for whatever role you are applying for. We will be offering 8-12 weeks of intensive training through our in house team for entry level roles to bring you up to speed on our business and products, and more importantly to give you the basic skills you will need to hit the ground running. This training will be a mixture of classroom time with our in house training team, and shadowing colleagues within the business currently succeeding in these positions. 

We strongly believe these are great opportunities for Service leavers, as we aren’t worried about whether you have already worked in a relevant sector, but whether you have the potential to succeed with us, and more importantly we recognise all of the superb transferable skills you will have from your time in the forces, such as organisation skills, being able to work under pressure, a strong work ethic and strong communication skills.
