    The firm will be hiring for over 20 roles once the academy is finished, and those that complete the initial eight-week programme will automatically gain an interview for a permanent position with Version 1's Belfast team.

    If a candidate is successful in their interview, they will then undertake a further four weeks of training in Cloud, DevOps and software development.
