Programming is an essential part of the IT world, and programmer jobs are sought after by many graduates and IT professionals alike.

If you're interested in programming, you can find work across a range of tech industries, including working in game developer jobs, database and software developer jobs, as well as more general vacancies with virtually any company with an IT infrastructure. Education-wise, most programmer jobs require a relevant degree in Computer Science, Programming or other related subjects. There's also scope to learn with various courses online while in your current career, making programming a popular, flexible choice for professionals with existing IT skills.
As it's a popular industry in Scotland, and in particular in the Central Belt, junior programmer jobs can be found in a variety of Scottish IT companies and many have schemes for agency or in-house work. These roles are ideal for recent graduates or those who've retrained, and teach the core principles of the discipline on a practical level.
