The Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law, as part of the exciting Legal Innovation Lab Wales initiative, seeks to appoint a dynamic, enthusiastic developer who can turn their hand to anything that comes their way, who can embrace new challenges with enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in.

We know that the \'perfect candidate\' doesn\'t really exist, we\'re looking to find the right person to join our team. Use the points below to complete the application form to give us a good impression of who you are and why you would be able to excel in the role.

Usually based on Singleton Campus in Swansea, remote workers will be given equal consideration.

The day-to-day requirements of the role will be varied; you will be working on a wide variety of LegalTech projects, the vast majority of which will be in their early stages (proof of concepts and prototypes).

The Lab will also support the development and testing of software that can be deployed within projects seeking to mitigate the risk of criminal and terrorist exploitation of digital platforms, as part of the work of the School\'s Cyber Threats Research Centre (CyTREC).

The Software Development Team will support innovation in LegalTech and cyber threats. The team will have creative opportunities to shape project proposals and to develop prototypes.
