Graduate Technical Consultant
End date: N/A
Internal Background Check (DBS)
Solirius Consulting delivers technical consultancy and application delivery to our clients in order to solve real world problems and allow our clients to respond to an ever-changing technical landscape. We partner closely with our clients, embedding our consultants into their businesses in order to provide a bespoke service, allowing us to truly understand our clients’ needs.
It is this close collaboration with our clients that has enabled us to grow rapidly in recent years and will drive our ambitious future growth plans. We currently have over 250 consultants working with a variety of key clients from both the public and private sectors such as the Ministry of Justice, Department for Education, FCDOS, UEFA, International Olympic Committee and Mercedes Benz; with plans to increase our client base further in the near future.
We operate as a flat organisation and believe in trusting and supporting our team to operate independently. We pride ourselves on being specialists at what we do, making the most of our consultants’ expertise in their fields in order to provide a best-in-class service to our clients. All our consultants have the opportunity to work on a range of different projects, providing a broad range of knowledge on which to develop their careers and progress in the direction they choose.
This is a new graduate role within our Technology Consulting Practice. You will be supporting our team on projects for our private and public sector clients and assisting in the design of bespoke business solutions for implementation into delivery.
We find that our technology consultants in the highest demand have a very broad knowledge base, and at least some experience in all areas (but are likely to have specialist knowledge in one or two). We recognise that graduates may not yet know where they want to specialise, so to help you decide your ideal pathway and give you a breadth of experience, you will have the opportunity to try different roles on different projects before deciding your chosen specialisms.
Typically, you will work on a particular project for 6-12 months before moving on to a new challenge. You will be part of a larger team, working with and receiving on-the-job support from senior consultants. As a technical consultant, naturally, you will work closely with our clients, helping to ensure that the project delivers great outcomes.
Candidates should be open to working in different locations for different clients. Although most of our work is in London, candidates should be happy to travel as client needs dictate.
For the first 12-18 months, you will be predominantly concentrating on developing your skills in software development.
Responsible for aiding the design for new systems and solutions for implementation into live service delivery.

Being part of a larger team - working and learning from senior architects within the team.
Regular communication with both internal and external stakeholders.
Helping to develop technical reports and providing support for bids on new projects.

Specialist skills required:
The role will suit someone with academic or commercial programming experience with a genuine interest in technology and strong desire to deliver the best possible solutions for our clients. You will be confident in critical thinking, enjoy tackling difficult problems in a structured way and are highly motivated self-starters. You will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with confidence to communicate with both internal and external stakeholders.
