Future prospects

“i2N teach you such a large amount about the working world in a short period of time. They really encourage you to not only grow as an employee, but as a person. People supposedly dread going to work every morning, but I can genuinely say I look forward to it each day. The staff here are warm and welcoming and easy to get along with. They want to engage with yourself to hear your thoughts and ideas. Furthermore you get to work in an interesting and developing environment, one that makes an impact on society. If you get the opportunity to work here, I cannot recommend it highly enough. C.Whiteley, History & Criminology, 2014”

Things to consider

Because of the nature of our business, I am afraid we have to stipulate that you can show five years recent residency in the UK. Public transport is poor where we are, so you will probably need your own wheels.

About the employer

We are specialist system integrators: - All our development is done agile. - Our core expertise is for secure Applications in the cloud. - Our staff are SC cleared. - We have an excellent track record working with large Government Departments and Arms Length Bodies. - Our Service Desk is a key part of what we do (it’s why our customers tend to stay with us).
