I have an exciting and challenging opportunity for an experienced Senior IT Engineer / Consultant with my key client based in Berkshire. My client supplies a range of managed services, hosted telephony and telecoms to small to medium sized commercial businesses and local government clients. With an excellent reputation for outstanding service they have an ever expanding client base and are looking to recruit a Senior Engineer to help them as they grow as a business.

As Senior IT Engineer/Consultant your time will be split between BAU support, pre-sales work and hands-on deployment, you will also act as an escalation point and mentor for the technical support team. This position will suit a well accomplished and experienced technical engineer that has an outstanding attention to detail and wants to move towards a more customer orientated consultative role. As part of the role the successful Senior Engineer/Consultant will be involved in the entire lifecycle for customers including assessing the technical requirements of a customer, building a proposal and deploying/documenting the solution. Very much a hands-on role you will be required to build, configure and troubleshoot all aspects of the deployment and will then assist the support staff in troubleshooting any issues on telephone or on customer sites.

A key part of the role will be to work alongside the BAU Service Desk and engineering team to provide IT support to our customer base. For a very diverse base of technology you will act as a point of escalation and also take part in day-to-day Service Desk activity working with our customers to resolve complex issues and making recommendations for long term fixes and improvements. This role is the 'go-to' person for all IT related challenges and must be able to pick up the baton whether familiar with a particular technology or not, we are looking for an engineer with an aptitude that means they can apply themselves to any technical task in a logical, methodical manner.

The successful applicant will be organised, have a passion for technology and a solid understanding at an expert level of Microsoft Server Technologies, SAN Technologies, Virtualisation, Office 365 and Microsoft Exchange. General networking knowledge is a must, basic routing, firewall and switching concepts whilst Cisco configuration knowledge is desirable. They must be a self-starter, able to work in customer environments with minimal documentation or guidance. They must understand the concept of good service and that maximising uptime for our customers is imperative.
