Technical Consultant

We are currently looking for Graduate Trainees to join our highly skilled team. You will work with industry-standard technologies and develop sought-after database skills.

We're looking for people with at least a second class honours degree in a science-based subject and a strong technical background. Your degree will have heavily featured the use of programming and you will be proficient in at least one programming language such as C#, Java, Visual Basic or SQL. A strong mathematics background as part of your degree would also be preferable.

Equally important is your ability to fit into our small, close-knit team. Ideally, you will be proficient at pool. Not to the extent that we can’t ever beat you but enough to give us a challenge… If pool is not your thing, there's plenty going on in the office at all times with chat ranging from shoes to star wars!

As a graduate technical consultant, you will be exposed to industry-standard technologies and develop highly sought-after database skills. We are not hierarchical so you will have the opportunity to gain experience across a range of clients and really interesting projects. We have a friendly team, a great office (overlooking Haymarket Station), and offer a competitive salary, bonus and training.

Working for Optima will give the chance to work with some big names, like Matalan, Flybe and Lloyds, with all of the benefits of a smaller company - ideal for graduates looking for the best of both worlds.

Established in 2005 Optima Connect is one of the UK's leading marketing service providers. We are specialists in data strategy, marketing database development, customer journey planning, predictive modelling, marketing campaign planning, performance reporting and data visualisation. We work across multiple sectors with big brand clients and almost 30 million customer records under management. We are a Microsoft Certified Gold Partner in Cloud Competency.
