This job has been filled
Java developer sought to work in Ilkley near Leeds, England UK.
Pay: GBP�16K upward
Java Certification Valued but not essential. Attitude, apptitude and knowledge as important as commercial experience.
Working on Server side Java, servlets, jsp, jdbc, Linux etc etc
Will only consider applicants who are based in and entitled to work here in the UK. We do not want to go through the whole immigration red-tape thing. If you are not in the UK or do not have a work permit you will not be considered. Email me at

Again, you must be entitled to work in the UK.

Marcus,
Although I realize this post is quite dated. I'd like to comment on your statement about the hassles of permits. According to a UK Government website and several recruiters that I spoke to, if you're on the skills shortages list located at http://www.workpermits.gov.uk/guidance/business/application/index.shtml (if you do Java, you are), then the permit process is extremely easy and costs the employer no money.
FYI

Since that posting we have recruited several excellent programmers who sit close to me and have no current openings.
When considering overseas applications it is not just the red tape factor but there is the issue of how do you interview someone who is not in the country without someone spending a shed load of money on airfaires. Like most employers we would be very reluctant to employ someone without seeing them "in the flesh".
Also an amusing aside, I recieved abotu 30 resumes from my postin of this vancancy and about two of them were from people in the UK who had a work permit.

What, I've spent so many hours studying to get certified and now a web search is only coming up with jobs like this. Is �16k really the going rate for certified Java programmers in Yorkshire?
