What you will have
You don’t need any prior experience in Software Development or know how to code; our training will get you up to speed in no time. Instead, a good Alfa Consultant will have the ability to see an end goal, break down the steps to get there and put in the effort to achieve it.
You are a high achiever, with As and Bs at A level (or equivalent) and a 2:1 or above from a top university
You are logically minded
You are proud of your work and what you acheive
You are a real team player
You are looking for a future immersed in Technology and Finance.
We are Alfa
There's so much more to life at Alfa than the job description.
We are at heart a Software and Consultancy business.
We write Alfa systems, which is software dedicated to the Finance industry, but on top of this we work closely with our clients to implement this and effect business change.
We put a lot of time and effort into ensuring we have a really good culture within the office here. From international trips to coffee in the office and dodgeball club to drinks after work, there's so much more to life at Alfa than the job description.
Whether you want to travel or to work on particular roles in the company, our international expansion across new markets and regions means that the possibilities to join us and make your mark are endless.
Having a great time at work is incredibly important to us.
It's a delight coming into the office every morning due to our own coffee bar and barista, who prepares our daily caffeine hit alongside other sweet treats.
Throughout the week, there are always social activities to get involved with, from Football to Photography clubs. If your interest isn't already here, there's plenty of support to start a new group.
Come Fridays after work, there is always a group ready to celebrate the successes of week with a few drinks.
As well as our Annual Conference, which never fails to be a fantastic time. In the previous years, we have jetted off to Crete, Monte Carlo and Miami.
Our relatively small size lends itself to an atmosphere that is both inclusive and collaborative, and we enjoy the luxury of knowing all of our colleagues.
We offer amazing career progression opportunities.
It’s a telling sign when you look at how many of our senior management joined as graduates.
There is so much opportunity here that it is no wonder people remain with us to help us grow and develop.
