PA Consulting Group graduates

Software Developer Graduate

Your challenge

You'll help us bring fresh, bold thinking to today's digital reality, where IT is no longer a back-office overhead but a front-office value creator. The rise of the Agile methodology means developers must now combine technical expertise with soft skills such as negotiation and collaboration. So while you can expect to work with cutting-edge technology (such as cloud computing, big data and mobile applications), you'll also have the opportunity to develop client-facing and consultancy skills.
