Graduate Applications Engineer

Are you the go-to IT guru amongst your friends?

If so, you may have what it takes to become an expert Applications Engineer. The role plays an essential part in setting up and managing commercial software packages, making sure they're performing as expected, and helping users find remedies for their IT blues.

Dorset Software create and maintain bespoke IT systems for a range of clients spanning multiple industries. Working either in-house or at client sites across the UK, you will be configuring and maintaining complex, custom-made programmes, as well as providing ongoing technical support.

Applications Engineers are the expert users of all applications, but we don't expect you to join with any previous experience. Before you’re assigned a live project you’ll get the chance to develop all the necessary skills while getting paid.
