The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is looking to hire an array of technology and data specialists. 

The department is currently advertising 24 vacant posts covering three core disciplines: software development; data; and user research. 

Software developers must possess skills in a major development language, such as Java, C++, Python or, ideally, C++.NET. 

The data specialists sought by the department, meanwhile, will need experience of working with SQL or PL/SQL, as well as “providing data reporting services with BI tools or integrating data sets with intuitive CRM systems”.

“Prior experience of technology such as Node.js, BizTalk, Ms Azure, or Informatica is also distinctly advantageous,” the job advert said.

Prospective user researchers require “a successful track record of business analysis or user research in a similarly diverse environment”.

The annual salaries on offer range from £28,320 to £65,080, and the jobs will be based across Defra offices in Bristol, Reading, Warrington, and York.

“The Department… requires a multitude of skill sets across the UK,” Defra said. “Together we will launch an audience-informed programme of digital change across the organisation, revolutionising how people in the UK understand, interact with and manage our natural environment.”

Applications are open until 15 October.
