Graduate Job Profile - Development

Development offers a wide range of responsibilities and tasks and so there may be very different roles available once your development training has been completed. You may find yourself working on new projects as part of a development team; attending design meetings, liaising with clients/customers, writing, developing, testing and reviewing code.          


Alternatively, you could be responsible for supporting existing applications. With this you will liaise with end users to fix bugs, find solutions and test them. Also for any changes requested you would check the feasibility, communicate with the client, and implement. Similarly, you would be able to add additional functionality to existing applications; exploring, designing and implementing solutions upon gathering requirements.


A passion for technology and strong interest in the industry is essential, as this is a demanding career path. An analytical mind and a problem solving approach are desirable attributes and such candidates are likely to excel in IT development. In addition, you should be aware of, and have a desire to keep up with, developments in the industry and emerging technologies.
