At Alfa, we look for people who are bright, inquisitive, technically minded, and fun to work with. We have a collaborative company culture and whilst we give our employees plenty of responsibility, we also ensure they are fully supported. Induction and pre-project training is around 10 weeks so new joiners need to be ready to take on lots of learning from the start of their career. If you have a 2:1 or better and As and Bs at A Level, we know you are bright. Add to that motivation to learn about technology and asset finance and you have a successful Alfa employee! This is why we have IIP Silver status, Best Companies accreditation and are one of TheJobCrowd's Top Companies for Graduates to Work For.

Our junior consultants are recruited from graduates of the highest calibre across all disciplines. New recruits are given an intensive induction into areas such as the asset finance industry, software development and consultancy skills, before being assigned to a project where they can put their training into practice. Supervised at all times by more experienced consultants, recent joiners will find that the open culture means they also have easy access to senior managers and directors for discussion and guidance. With some help from their colleagues, our newest consultants will be helping to change the way businesses work from the very start of their career.

Your initial training period will be delivered by your new colleagues from junior to senior. You'll then be working on a client site or based in the London office, and your first role will typically involve software development. During a project, as well as the design and development of the software, we also need to modify business processes to ensure the client is working as effectively as possible, test that everything works, transfer all the data from the old system to ALFA, and provide support through the go-live process and into the future. During your career, you will spend time working in a variety of roles in these areas. As you progress, you will develop particular abilities and interests and you can choose your training to support that. You might want to work towards being a Project Manager for instance or a Technical Architect of our software; that's up to you.

Skills Required

As well as top class academics, a good Alfa consultant has the ability to see an end goal, break down the steps to get there, and put in the effort to achieve it. To be successful you must have a genuine interest in IT and finance.
