Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service have an exciting opportunity for an ICT Solutions Developer to join our small dedicated team based at our Service Headquarters in Birstall.

You will be developing and maintaining current systems and delivering software development projects using tools such as Visual Studio, SQL, SSIS, SSRS, PowerShell and K2 business process management software.
You will be self-motivated with the ability to work alone or as part of a team. A high degree of accuracy and attention to detail is essential.
