We are recruiting a Software Tester for an exciting role offering the chance to learn new development technology skills whilst experiencing life in another city.

On offer is a once in a lifetime opportunity to join a market-leading client offering the chance to live and work in another city.

After this initial period (approximately 9-12 Months), you will then work from the Glasgow software development office to continue the role with the team that has gained this experience already and are now based there.

Our client offers an opportunity that will also provide skills and exposure in a role that offers a scope of work that you would not learn here in Glasgow. They want you to enjoy and good work/life balance and as part of their commitment will provide regular flights back to Glasgow. They will also find and cover the costs of your own personal apartment accommodation, and a fully expensed company car (usually a Volvo) so it real opportunity to experience life and culture in another country and city whilst being offered in-depth training and on the job mentoring before moving back to Scotland.

Applicants should have skills and experience as follows:

  • Ideally a 2:1 (or better) degree or qualification in IT / Software related.
