The details

We’re a team of the brightest and most curious minds with a fundamental belief that every organisation can be better.

We crack some of the toughest business and public-sector challenges of the day. Not with reports or copy & paste thinking. But by pinpointing and implementing the changes that will make the biggest difference.

We never start out assuming we know the answer. But we’re always certain we’ll find it and see it through to the finish. By uncovering the data that means the most important decisions are made with facts, not opinions. By bringing together a group of people who live and breathe delivering results. And by embedding in your organisation this same passion, self-belief and know-how to thrive on any challenge in the future.

We believe so strongly in what we can achieve together that we stand by the founding idea of Newton – guaranteeing 100% of our fees against delivering results that are recognised by everyone, from the frontline to the boardroom.

We demand better in everything we do. We think you should too.

What is the role?

From the moment we think about where we can help a client, to scheduling our consultants through to tracking our project delivery it’s our Salesforce platform which steers our business.

You’ll work closely across the many areas of the business to understand and advise on changes and improvements to our business systems. You’ll design, build, test and support applications which run our business processes across the whole life of the projects we carry out for clients.

  • Proactively identify where we can make our systems and business processes better
  • Delivering software via our Salesforce platform to add value to users across Newton
  • Working with a wider team to collaborate on solutions and communicate progress
  • Developing and maintaining a strong understanding of how Newton works and requirements of the people and teams who work within it

  • Help improve how we design, build, test, document and deploy software
  • Working with our IT support team as a third line resource for line of business applications to identify and resolve incidents
  • Liaising with technology vendors and their support teams to ensure resolution of queries and issues
  • Help coordinate and plan our software delivery

Supporting you starts from day one. Throughout your time at Newton, you’ll get support from several sources – from stretching projects, on-the-job feedback and developmental guidance from our leaders.

We offer a highly competitive salary and our generous benefits package includes Life Assurance, Income Protection, pension contributions and 28 days holiday.
