The Opportunity:
Lead Network Engineer required for this fantastic opportunity that will provide an ambitious Network Engineer an environment where they can really push for their ideas to become a reality. Our City based client is a cloud-first organisation and early adopter of both Azure and AWS. They’ve replaced legacy voice systems with a cloud-based UC platform and the on-premise infrastructure is currently being redesigned and replaced with a leading HCI platform! To aid them on their continued journey they are looking to recruit an expert hands-on Network Engineer to shape the direction of the network function. With a HQ of 200+ people, two data centres and 8+ remote offices around the country they are looking to exploit more open-source technologies to complement their use of best-in-class commercial systems providing even more opportunity to work with multiple products and technologies.

You will be expected and fully encouraged to share and discuss ideas with yours peers to aid collaborative decision making.
