Senior Consultant - IT Infrastructure

Central London

£45,000 - £52,000

Remaining technically hands-on is extremely important but long gone are your support days, and you're either managing an infrastructure team or consulting and executing projects for a number of clients. Your role encompasses pre-sales, infrastructure design and project management/delivery. Excellent service goes hand in hand with your technical prowess. You're able to assess a business' requirement. You can architect and implement an IT Infrastructure solution to solve it. You have worked with the majority of A-list vendor technology - VMWare, CITRIX, Veeam. Microsoft server and cloud infrastructure should be embedded in your day to day.

You will be doing more of this with my client. The difference this time is the consistent reward for doing it. Extremely complex issues, more responsibility, further exposure to new technologies, financial support for technical certifications.

You will carry out your duties with autonomy, and an ethical approach, to make a real difference. Clients will range from 50-2000 users. You will provide a technical escalation point for junior members and the complex issues they come across, helping to mentor them as they look to progress. As an employee, you will be given the support necessary to achieve your long-term ambitions.


* Able to demonstrate a track record of implementing high-level IT Infrastructure solutions
* Experience with managing multiple projects with competing demands, using PRINCE2 or Agile methodology
* Able to implement and use ITIL framework for service delivery
