Location: Croydon (near East Croydon Station)

Hours of work: 37.5 hours per week Mon to Fri 1 Year FTC

Salary: £30,000 to £33,000 per annum

The Role:

Joining HCML as a junior software developer, you’ll work in a hands-on role as part of our team of experienced .NET Core and Angular developers, developing software used by HCML’s case managers and our treatment partners when helping our clients rehabilitate after suffering injuries – often life changing ones.

You’ll work across the entire stack – IIS, SQL, .NET Core and Angular 2+ – on your own user stories, either independently or pairing with one of the team.

You’ll take part in our Scrum lifecycle as an integral member of our daily scrums, planning sessions, retrospectives and backlog sessions. You’ll join for an initial period of one year, with potential to progress to a permanent role.


You’ll have 6-12 month’s commercial experience – and might be a recent graduate or have completed a recent apprenticeship. You’ll have strong ASP.NET/C# and JavaScript skills and experience with T-SQL.

You’ll have a passion for picking up and using new technology & architecture patterns and you’ll be keen on developing applications using a microservices approach. You might have an interest in technologies like SignalR and Redis, platforms like Microsoft Azure, or containerisation tools like Docker and Kubernetes.

You’ll want to be part of a fun but professional team and enjoy continually delivering quality software to our staff and partners to help them in their roles.

You’ll have excellent verbal and written English and will be comfortable liaising directly with our users about their requirements when required.

Benefits and Salary:

You’ll have access to a full PluralSight subscription, and the opportunity for mentoring from our existing developers, and we’ll provide you with support in upskilling to the latest versions of Angular, TypeScript and .NET Core.

You’ll work in our friendly Croydon office based just 300m from Boxpark, HCML enjoy a fun and professional atmosphere with regular social and charity events, and weekly fruit deliveries.

You’ll benefit from our company health cash plan as well as access to a range of perks, offers and assistance programmes.

We offer 25 days annual leave from day 1, as well as bank holidays.

In addition if eligible, you’ll be auto-enrolled into our workplace pension scheme at the required level after your third month. From the end of your probation you’ll receive an upgraded pension – you’ll contribute a minimum of 2% and HCML will contribute 6% – double the UK Pensions regulator requirements.
