Company Description

Version 1 is one of Europe’s fastest growing IT Consultancies and has been around for over 20 years, with 9 offices across the UK and Ireland.  

Our culture is centered on Trust & Empowerment and this has earned us a Top 10 spot on the Great Place to Work Europe List 2017, 2018 & 2019. We have over 1200 passionate employees working on projects and technologies that make a real difference in the world and enable you to make an impact. Our greatest strength is balancing our efforts to achieve Customer Success, Empowered People and a Strong Organisation, underpinned by a commitment to our Values. We believe this is what makes Version 1 different and more importantly, our customers agree. 

Version 1 in Scotland, based in Edinburgh, has been operating for five years and in that time has expanded with significant work at leading Scottish & International customers including large global banks, international construction companies and large utilities customers providing a broad range of Digital, Cloud and ERP services. As we are continuing to grow, we are working with a number of public and private sector organisations to effectively support them in their transformation and application modernisation journeys.  

A new customer is about to come onboard and we are growing the team that will help deliver services to support their digital transformation. The roles will be based primarily in Glasgow city centre onsite with the customer, with opportunity to work from Edinburgh intermittently once the team is up and running.  This team will support their existing platforms including the infrastructure platform, Office365 and knowledge systems as part of a wider team. Having embarked on a Data Analytics programme, they are looking for assistance in a project to set up data visualisation tools such as PowerBI. This is an exciting time to get involved in the early stages of a new programme of work: the team will grow and expand in the coming months and this will provide opportunities for everyone in the team to do so too.
