This is a great opportunity for IT enthusiasts to develop and enhance a career in IT Engineering. We are looking for Senior IT Engineers and Junior Engineers/Technicians to join us immediately to work at our HQ in Alton and our client site at Farnborough.

Thorn SDS provides specialist consultancy and managed services into the European Space and Defence marketplace. Our teams of highly skilled engineers and technicians deliver critical services to our clients, often embedded within their core operational areas. We offer training and development opportunities and an opportunity to work in a flexible and supportive team environment.

We are looking for keen and knowledgeable generalist IT Engineers who would like to work in a fast paced, operational environment where they will be exposed to the challenges and opportunities afforded by working within the Defence sector in a DevOps culture. We are looking for people who bring not only some experience, but also a commitment to working in a team and a capacity to identify and share business improvements with them.

Candidates will be representing the company and need to be confident communicators, with a desire to learn and quickly develop their skillset to meet the changing requirements of our client.

Your approach to work will be more important than your level of experience or qualification.

All applicants should ideally have a relevant qualification in IT and some experience in some of the following areas:

Windows Server






Basic Scripting


MS Office

Virtual Servers

Training will be provided.

Benefits include up to 33 days holiday (including bank holidays), workplace pension scheme and potentially a subsidised on-site gym membership, if you are based at our client?s site. Salary will be dependent on experience.

Due to the security restrictions of a supported program all applicants must exclusively hold a UK passport.

Candidates holding or who have held high level security clearance in the past are most welcome to apply.

Please note successful applicants will be required to be security cleared prior to appointment which can take up to a minimum 18 weeks.

Owing to the requirement to commute between our sites, all candidates must have a current driving license.
