What do I need to know? 

  • What does the online assessment involve?

    The online assessment will be a coding based challenge through the Codility website. You will be given approximately one week to complete the challenge. Once you begin the coding challenge you will be under a time limitation in which to complete it. The difficulty of the coding challenge will depend on which role you are applying for.

  • What can I expect in the selection process?

    The selection process will be made up of a couple of different sections, including an interview, group activity and whiteboarding. More information on this will be available closer to the time.

    We conduct competency based interviews, so you should prepare some examples from your current or past experience using the STAR method:

    • Situation - describe the situation you were faced with.
    • Task - what were your tasks (talk about ‘you’ as opposed to 'the team')
    • Action - what actions did you take.
    • Result - what was the result.
  • How long does the recruitment process take?

    The process, including shortlisting, technical testing and interviewing takes about one month. We will keep you informed during the process and aim to give you feedback as soon as possible.  

  • Where will I be based?

    We are adopting a hybrid remote and in-office culture. We will continue to work virtual-first, with office time in our Dublin or Belfast offices dedicated to a specific purpose or based on personal choice of working environment. 

  • What are the working hours at Liberty IT?

    We work 37.5 hour weeks and have core hours of 10am to 4pm. Please note that you may be required to work outside of these hours from time to time to meet business demands.

  • I'm an international student, can I apply?

    Yes, you can apply as long as your visa allows you to work legally in UK and/or the Republic of Ireland. If you are applying from overseas, please note that if you are offered a role, you do need to be based in NI /ROI.

  • I am currently studying in another country, can I apply for an Intern/Graduate role?

    Our intern software engineer positions are distributed among our partner universities and third level educational institutions, so unfortunately they are not open to students from other universities. You can apply for our Associate Software Engineer graduate positions if you are studying internationally but please note the requirements in the question above.

  • What will my salary be and when will I be paid?

    You will receive a competitive base salary along with a bonus and access to our benefits scheme. You will be paid monthly.

    Benefits include financial (pension, bonus, life assurance, Perks card), health and wellbeing (employee assistance programme, health insurance), professional development (Training Academy, support for study and certification and a wide range of training and events) and social benefits (social and corporate responsibility committees and company-wide events). We offer generous paid holidays, flexible working and recognition awards.
