Helping you find a career in the Software engineering industry

Software development is a major component of the UK’s economy (£125 billion in 2015 to be exact), and one of the fastest growing sectors too. Software developers can work on a range of different product types: massive projects for government departments, critical business applications for corporates, or on apps and computer programs which we all rely on. Software professionals can earn large amounts of money quite quickly in their careers, although starting salaries are on average comparable with other professions.

There is a huge variety in size and type of organisation you might work in as a software developer - from global businesses like Microsoft, Google, and Oracle plus large-scale management, IT consultancies, and Government departments, to small independent businesses and consultancies. IT can be a bewildering level of choice for both graduates and for experienced professionals.

Within larger organisations you may be working as part of large project teams on huge projects, while in consultancies you will often work across a greater variety of projects for clients, potentially in several industries. At smaller organisations there will often be greater responsibility and less hands-on management for developers. Work-life balance can be challenging as projects are often scheduled to strict deadlines, requiring occasional late evenings or early starts.

Software Developers/Engineers may specialise in particular industries or particular programming languages (for instance Java, Python or C#). Usually developers will need to work with different business functions to understand the specific requirements for software and systems which they will be developing and maintaining. This could entail working alongside Project and Product Managers, Graphic/UX Designers and Sales/Marketing teams.

Much of the job will entail writing and testing code for programs, evaluating existing programs and integrating new functionalities and software, drafting technical specifications, ongoing operational improvement.


Skills & interests required for a career in Software engineering
Very few businesses in the Software sector will hire candidates without at least basic level of coding skills, and many may specify experience with particular coding languages or products as part of their graduate hiring requirements. While not all employers will require an IT-related academic background, you will nearly always need to display some level of skill and familiarity with coding. Strong numeracy skills are also important.

You may also want to consider whether there are sectors or types of software you are most interested in (e.g. Banking Software, Gaming) as you may want to work on specific sorts of projects. Your experience as a software developer will depend on the nature of the products an organisation, or its clients, is using.
Graduate schemes & other typical career progression routes in Software engineering
Typically, graduate software developers are hired into entry-level/junior roles. In larger employers there is usually a structured training programme designed to introduce you to working in larger teams across different elements of the business and its products. In smaller organisations you might find yourself given a lot of responsibility quite early on in your career, and it’s possible you will have less structured training.

Many employers will also offer to cover the costs of training in the wide variety of different coding languages and technical skills which software developers can work with, although this is not always guaranteed. There are also a variety of Microsoft Learning, Oracle and British Computer Society courses which you can take independently, but these can be expensive.

Software Developers will usually progress through taking on greater technical responsibilities on projects, writing highly technical specifications for programs. After about five years you might progress to a Senior Developer/Engineer, supervising a small team. At more senior levels, the projects which a developer will lead will get larger, and so will the teams. Often at senior levels people management skills are as sought-after as programming and technical skills.

Many experienced Software or IT professionals will work independently for themselves for at least a portion of their career. This can either be through taking a series of fixed-term assignments with other businesses, or through working with a variety of different organisations as a consultant. The benefits to doing this are that it can be highly lucrative and offers a lot of variety. However it can be unstable as you will need to think about sourcing your next assignment or contract. As an independent developer you will also have to fund any training from your own income.
Tips for getting into the field
Speak to your university’s Careers Advisor to discuss your interest in Software Development. Some universities will have Knowledge Transfer Partnerships with organisations which will facilitate work experience and/or internship programmes, which can be invaluable in securing your first role in the industry.

While at university, check with the Careers Advisors or Computer Science Department to see whether there are any free or subsidised Coding courses that you can attend as a student.
How much can graduates earn in Software engineering?
Graduate Software Developer/Engineer salaries are usually between £18,000 and £30,000. Larger employers in the Software sector will often pay at the higher end of the bracket. However their graduate recruitment schemes can be intensely competitive to secure a place on.

Salary progression in Software Development can be quite quick, as an experienced Developer/Engineer you might earn £30,000 to £50,000, while at senior levels you can earn up to £70,000. Senior Management roles can be very well paid, both in terms of salary and bonuses.

If you became an independent software developer, your earnings would depend on your level of expertise, the demand for your skill set and the nature of projects. It is possible to earn significant sums independently, but earnings can also be unstable.
What qualifications do I need for a career in Software engineering?
While not all graduate Software Development roles will require a specific undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Computer Science, IT or Computer Engineering, graduates with these qualifications can help themselves get a head start in a competitive field.

If you have not taken a directly related subject, you can still apply successfully to many programmes if you have experience of Coding.
