Graduate Opportunities in Software Development

(From £20k plus generous benefits)

UK’s No. 1 Educational Publisher seeks Graduates to join IT Development Team

CGP is growing rapidly. We have created and now market around 1,000 titles (including digital products) and our range continues to expand. Based on four sites in the Lake District, with over 200 employees, we’re looking to recruit graduates with an interest in software development.

We develop all our own operational IT Systems so they are flexible and do exactly what we want — which is fundamental to our annual sales of over 11 million books and digital products.

If you are a bright graduate (or final year student) with a real enthusiasm for technology in general or software development in particular, we’d love to hear from you. We’re open-minded as to your degree (although we think maths, science or computing would work well) but whatever your background, you’ll:

  • Be open-minded with a desire to learn and develop
  • Have a logical mind and be switched on by technology
  • Enjoy structure and working with methodologies
  • Be self-motivated and driven by high standards

An existing understanding of C#, SOLID design principles or Agile delivery methods isn’t necessary but, if you’re the right person for this role and for CGP, you’ll be keen to research what they are and how they’re used in developing business systems. You’ll learn and develop with the team and all training will be provided in house. Then it’s up to you to make it work.


To apply, email your CV with a covering letter and (where applicable) your current salary details. Please remember to tell us what excites you about technology generally and why you're suited to this role and a career in IT.

Closing Date: Monday 29th January 2018
