Since 2007 we have run an undergraduate programme and during that time we’ve welcomed over 40 undergraduates many of whom have left us with graduate offers of employment.

The roles that will be covered under this programme are Developer, and Business Analyst / Project Manager placements.

We’re passionate about encouraging talent into STEMM and this is just one of the ways we actively support it.

“Software Solved has given me not only the opportunity to improve my technical skills, but also my confidence. The company has made me feel welcomed since day one. The projects have also been fun and challenging to work on, expanding on my existing skills and enhancing my knowledge by learning Xamarin and Aurelia.”
