SOLAS, the Further Education and Training Authority of Ireland, was established on 27 October 2013 and its mission is to fund, co-ordinate and monitor a range of Further Education and Training (FET) provisions that is responsive to the needs of learners and employers.  It is an agency of the recently formed Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science.  SOLAS works in close collaboration with Education and Training Boards (ETBs) across Ireland on provision of high-quality further education and training, equipping learners with relevant skills and knowledge, and providing a pipeline of talent into employment and to the Irish economy and society.

At SOLAS, we put the learner, employers and communities, which FET serves, at the heart of everything we do.  In May 2020, SOLAS launched its first People Strategy, as a catalyst to transform our working environment and culture, and create the conditions for our future organisation to thrive and achieve its goals.

We are currently recruiting for a Software Developer in the ICT division.  Working in conjunction with the IT apprenticeship team lead and business stakeholders, the successful candidate will work as a developer on new functionality in the SOLAS application space, but also in the support and realignment of existing legacy software.  Key to this will be support and development of reports and statistical data extracts to serve the business need.
