Main purpose of the job

We have long been established as a leading provider of high quality IT solutions and is now seeking to recruit a Senior Infrastructure Consultant to address a growing number of customer engagements around Microsoft products..

This role requires both significant customer engagement and engagement with internal teams in order to design, deliver and support high quality cloud solutions using public or hybrid cloud technology, complemented by the existing solution portfolio.

Along with excellent people skills, the post requires excellent knowledge of cloud technologies derived from the execution of production grade cloud projects or cloud related product development. Since cloud technologies are constantly evolving, it's crucial that the successful applicant is willing to keep up to date with the latest industry developments on an ongoing basis and share such knowledge both internally and externally, with our customers and in supporting company activities within local technology communities.

This post will require an individual who is willing and able to work independently equally well as within a team. Whilst support is always available within the company, roles at this level are typically lightly managed and the ability for the successful candidate to use their own initiative is key. This role requires a willingness to travel across the UK and Ireland.
