Here at Havas Lynx we use our technical, creative and marketing skills to promote Helpful Change. That’s our motto, and our work in healthcare communications is all around achieving this with our clients from the healthcare and wellness sectors. In order to communicate with patients, their carer’s, and healthcare professionals across the world, we create a wide range of innovative digital solutions. We’re always focused on what is the most accessible channel – posing the question: How can patient’s best access the information that they need? The solution can include responsive websites, microsites, mobile applications and games, to name a few. To join this year’s Graduate Programme commencing in September we are looking for Junior Front End Developers to join us in our Manchester office.
We’re a large agency, with a flat structure and multi-functional teams of around 25-30 people. Our structure facilitates opportunities for great team work, communication and collaboration; we can be creative, innovative and provide a strong response to our clients. This also means that as a graduate you can expect to get exposure to a wide variety of projects early on in your career. At Lynx, we place a high level of focus on your skills and career development – we’re really proud to offer our internal training programme; you can find out more about the #LXAcademy via the blog area of our website – http://www.havaslynx.com/blog/. You will become one of over 80 graduates that have joined Lynx to commence their careers in recent years and you’ll be part of a cohort of over 30 graduates in 2016. We’re proud to say that developers who have joined us have quickly advanced their skill set, and many of our previous graduates have progressed into more senior positions within the company.
We’re looking for developers who have recently graduated with a relevant degree (2:1 classification or higher), or have already gained some professional experience from a digital background – either from a creative agency, or a software development house. We would like to see a portfolio of work which clearly portrays your technical knowledge and coding skills – you should be able to demonstrate a strong foundation level knowledge in all aspects of Front End Development. At Lynx, you can expect to work closely with experienced Developers and there is a significant lean towards WordPress. Knowledge of this area will be an advantage; but this is an area you can expect to learn on the job.
Whilst your technical skills are important for this position – genuine enthusiasm is also key. You should be creative-minded, eager to learn and keep on top of new technologies and share your knowledge with the rest of the team. We’re also looking for someone who works well with people – you’ll work with a range of teams in-house, so we’re looking for a real team player who has their own ideas, alongside the confidence to share them.
You will find we’re also very proud of our heritage and culture and we work in a sociable, friendly environment; take a look at our Facebook and Instagram pages for a closer look at what we get up to socially.
