Web developers design, build and maintain websites and web applications to meet their client's needs. Jobs can range from creating a staff intranet for an organisation to building a payment system for an online retailer.

 

If you want a varied job, can find creative ways to solve problems and have good programming skills, this could be the career for you. You'll also need to be a good teamworker, with the ability to meet deadlines.

 

Most web developers have qualifications and experience in IT. You can join a graduate training scheme after university or start as a junior developer with a company and work your way up.
