From supporting safer drug trials, to researching cleaner energy, to developing flood forecasting techniques – Tessella’s technical staff work to deliver solutions that make a difference to real lives. Everyone in our technical team holds a scientific, numerate or engineering degree, most of whom have higher degrees and doctorates. This gives us the background to understand the challenging technical issues faced by our clients. All our staff are provided with an extensive training allowance of 20 days per year – three times the national average.
At whatever level you enter the company, your ability to solve complex problems will be essential in helping deliver consultancy and IT solutions to clients in our target sectors. You should have at least a 2:1 degree in a scientific or numerate subject and experience in at least one of our core programming languages: Java, C#, C++, C or VB.Net. Applicants with Masters and PhDs are welcome.
You will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects throughout your career at Tessella, many of which may be based on customers’ sites, so good communication skills and flexibility are also essential. The nature of our business provides regular opportunities for staff to travel to clients’ sites and to work away on projects for periods of time, from several days to a few months. Opportunities for longer secondments to other Tessella offices or to clients overseas may also arise.
