    Reporting directly to the Director of Custom Development, you will be responsible for working on a set of bespoke applications and pick up on many of the aspects of software delivery that are not specifically programming; such as (but not limited to) analysis, issue investigation, project monitoring, reporting writing and management of progress, checking for completeness and accuracy, training and documentation.
