Job Description

The BES Group are the leading end to end solution provider in the Testing, Inspection, Certification and Compliance sector. Our team of experts (hand-picked by our Careers Team) cover an extensive range of engineering services.

We’ve gone from strength to strength over recent years, welcoming the very best risk management businesses to our Group. As a result, we’ve grown both our team of experts and our suite of solutions in line with our customer’s needs. We’re private equity backed, which means we have the flexibility and support to move quickly and grow faster than any other company in our industry. We’re innovative and forward thinking and have the awards to prove it, but most of all we’re focused on helping make sure our customers leave nothing to chance.

Our head office is based in central Manchester and is the home to many of our central functions. To support our continued ambitious growth plans, we are delighted to be recruiting for a Power Platform Developer to join our fantastic IS team.

What are we looking for? 

Job scope:

This role offers an outstanding opportunity to join BES Group at a key moment in the growth of our business and, the evolution of our Group operations and systems landscape

You will join our Manchester based technology team in a software development role that will keep you close to both business users and hands on development work.  Our business generates a constant stream of interesting challenges requiring technology solutions.  Due to our size, the benefits our solutions generate are significant, yet our agility allows you to rapidly see the impact of what you deliver.

Our technical environment is Microsoft centric with core systems of Dynamics 365 CE, Dynamics 365 Finance and Office 365 integrated with a range of in-house developed Azure deployed services and portals, and a Windows based mobile platform for our 700 strong team of field-based Engineer Surveyors.  Over the last 3 years we have also developed a rich portfolio of Power Platform apps to solve a variety of business problems.  

This core responsibility of this role is to be the lead developer building new apps and help maintain and improve existing ones. You will need to be able to communicate effectively with both the business users of the apps that you deliver and members of the IT team.   

We are a relatively small technology team tasked with a significant responsibility for transforming and continuously improving our business operations. This role demands someone with passion for technology and solution delivery.

Your goal is simple: to find ways to use Microsoft technology to make our customer services even better and our operations more efficient.

Important:  If you are not already a Power Platform developer, we are open to recruiting someone with a C# or SharePoint development background who is interested in expanding their skills for a period working with Power Platform technology. We have other C#, DevOps and project management roles available in our IT team, so this role could be a stepping stone into them. 

What will I be doing?  

Key Responsibilities:

Building new and enhancing existing SharePoint and Power Platform business applications.

Integrate Power Platform apps with a variety of data sources including CDS, SQL Server, SharePoint and various applications exposing APIs.

Collaborating with business operations staff and IS business analysts/architects to understand requirements and translate them into Power Platform solutions

Supporting and taking hands-on responsibility for solution deployment and provisioning activities (including out of hours and at weekends on occasion)

Working with our DevOps team and supporting the improvement of our software development tools, frameworks and processes with a particular focus on adapting them for SharePoint and Power Platform technologies

Identify opportunities for using technology innovations to improve our business and leading/participating in prototype exercises to prove them

Success of this role will be measured by:

The timely delivery and evolution of business applications that deliver business value and meet the needs of our end users

Demonstrating a deep knowledge of multiple Microsoft technologies and how they can be applied to solve business problems and create new business opportunities

The contribution made to evolve our software development processes to encompass Power Platform application delivery

Your contribution to building to a collaborative, innovative and supportive environment within the IS team and with the wider business operations team
