  • Salary 

    Based upon individual skill/experience level, against our competency framework:

    About Opencast 
    Opencast is an ambitious, successful, and growing technology consultancy. We pride ourselves in the qualities of our people. We're inclusive, creative, and collaborative. 
    It's an exciting time to join us on our journey as we grow and expand our services to help our clients tackle bigger, more complex challenges. We plan to treble the size of our team by 2025 — but we’re determined not to lose our unique culture. 
    What makes Opencast right for you? 
    You don’t have to tick every box to join us. We’re looking for those brave enough to ask the right questions and do the right thing. We value and empower our people, doing right by each other. We work flexibly and keep hierarchy to a minimum. 
    Inclusion at Opencast 
    Opencast is an equal opportunity employer and we’re committed to creating an environment where everyone thrives. We don’t discriminate based on age, disability, ethnicity, family status, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation. 
    If you’d like to be part of a team where your voice is heard and your involvement matters, please join us. We’re a better company because you’re with us. 
    Where you’ll work 
    At Opencast, we’re not remote-first – we’re hybrid. Our hybrid working model is about being in the right place at the right time to deliver your work, taking into account the requirements of your client and your team as well as your own. This could mean working at a client site, remotely at home or at one of our offices around the UK.
    Interview process 
    Interviews take place over Microsoft Teams. If that doesn’t work for you, we’ll do everything we can to support and make any necessary adjustments. We want to ensure everyone has the best possible interview experience. 
    Applicants from overseas 
    We accept applicants from overseas but once you’re appointed you need to work in the UK.
