Are you passionate about technology? Want to get the best start to your digital career?

Get fast-tracked into a ground-breaking career as a software technology consultant working with innovative organisations like TalkTalk, Google, Santander, Amazon partners and government. You'll build in-demand skills specialising in advanced, cutting-edge software.

Every day you'll use specialised technology to power organisations into the future.

Supercharge your career in technology consulting. Join the QA consulting academy.

Although this role is advertised with a specific location you would need to be geographically flexible and willing to relocate anywhere in the UK.

What's in store

  • Training from seriously clever mentors
    Software solutions power organisations. The software you'll specialise in is high in demand, but low in supply. You'll master it with training at our 12-week consulting academy in London technology hub. You'll also develop your business expertise so you can be a successful consultant.
  • Your career in digital consulting
    After your training you'll work with one of our customers on their site - anywhere in the country.
  • Push yourself and your career further
    Learning with QA doesn't stop after 12 weeks. We encourage you to continually learn and challenge yourself technically - so you can fulfil your potential.

The perks

  • A monthly bursary during your training at the QA London Academy located at International House - London
  • Industry-recognised certifications to boost your employability and promotability (if certifications apply to your specialism)
  • Competitive salary of £23,500 post-training (if you're based in London this will increase to £26,500)
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Regular social events (like technical talks and hackathons)
  • Continued support to help you fulfil your potential - you'll keep advancing your technical skills throughout your career with QA

What's the job like

As a technology consultant at QA, you'll empower our customers to develop, test and support software solutions - so they can be self-sufficient adopters of the latest technologies.

You'll bring your technical expertise to the customer, wherever they are. You'll help them to develop, test and maintain cutting-edge solutions, so they remain competitive.

You'll bring your skills for testing but with the perspective and skills of a software developer, you will change the way software is designed and written.


  • Build end-to-end software development projects that cover all aspects of the software development lifecycle (including design, build, test and deployment)
  • Create tests aimed to uncover possible threats and weaknesses of the system, at earlier stages of the software development lifecycle.
  • Cover multiple development technologies including Java, C#, JavaScript, HTML, and Spring Boot.
  • Be proficient in Functional and non-functional testing
  • Understand the principles of excellent software coding practices.
  • Work with all parts of an application - the back-end code, the front-end website and the database.
  • Work in agile teams where we deliver working software to our customers in a two-week cycle.
  • Perfect your consulting skills to a high standard and professional level, ready to work with our prestigious customers.

What we need from you

Must haves

  • A genuine passion for technology
  • Enthusiasm and willingness to learn tonnes of new skills and new technologies
  • A go-getter with a can-do attitude
  • Most importantly, you MUSTbe willing to move anywhere in the UK - part of the job is working wherever the customer is
  • You must be eligible to be able to apply for a UK Security Clearance
  • A Levels or equivalent of Level 3 BTEC or above qualifications.

Not a must, but we'd certainly like…

  • Any relevant qualifications including but not limited to: BTEC, Diplomas, HND, HNC, Foundation Degree Apprenticeship, Bachelor's Degree or Master's Degree. Ideally in a technical subject.

We will consider applications from a non-technical background if you show aptitude, passion and enthusiasm for learning technology skills.
