Published: 12.09.22 Ref: BBBH37564_1662975952

A growing consultancy/digital agency, who also develop their own in-house products, have an exciting opportunity for a Front End Developer to join their team. They are experiencing a period of growth; their existing clients are keeping them busy and there's also new clients and projects kicking off!

They know that technology plays a big role in any company's success - which is why they want to help their clients to get it right.

What will I be doing?

Good question!

As mentioned, the company are looking for an experienced Front End Developer.

You'll have the opportunity to work on a variety of exciting projects and you'll be involved in the full design and development process from idea to delivery. The team are a very tight-knit bunch, so you'll work closely with the Designers and will be encouraged to bring your own ideas to the table.

The company work with several clients which will allow you to work with and gain insights into many different sectors which keeps the role exciting!

Who am I?

The company are looking for a Developer that has commercial experience in a Front End role. If you've got experience working in an agency/consultancy then this could be the perfect role for you - not to worry if you haven't, they're keen to see people from all different backgrounds!

Ideally, you will be skilled in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, TypeScript and React. As React & TypeScript are their main technologies they use for the Front End, you should have commercial experience with this. You'll be working on bespoke products for a range of clients (who may have different technology stacks) so you should be flexible and up for learning new things. Some of the other tech that they work with but is not limited to is React Native, Node.js, C#, MVC .Net and Net Core. It would be really helpful if you have knowledge of any back end technology but this is not essential.

The role involves working closely with clients and so it is important that you have strong written and verbal communication skills.

Who will I be working with?

As mentioned, you'll work very closely with everyone else in the team, especially the Designers and Software Developers in the team. Everyone is happy to bounce ideas off each other and really get stuck into each project that they have. There won't be any shying away in this role due to the size of the team so you should be someone that likes to put their ideas and opinions forward!

The company's senior team are very experienced too and are great to work under. They're very flexible and there's no micro-management. It's up to you to manage your time.

What are the benefits and where will I be based?

The company have offices in Edinburgh City Centre and the team are currently go into the office 3 or 4 times per week. If you're not based Edinburgh but are really keen on the role, they are happy to consider remote working but there would be an expectation to visit every now and then.

The salary on offer is up to £40,000 (+ 10% annual bonus) but they could potentially go to £45,000 for the perfect candidate. They also offer "10% time" meaning that you can spend a portion of your working week on side projects, upskilling or training in new technologies.

If you're an experienced Front End React Developer that wants to work for a company on the rise in the Edinburgh's City Centre, then please apply and/or contact Jack Steven at Cathcart Associates.

Our clients


She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen
