Advertised Salary: £35,000 to £40,000
Date published: 17-Jun-2020
We are currently looking to add an experienced Infrastructure Engineer to our IT support team. This role would be working out of either our Manchester or Leeds office, but would join 3 other infrastructure engineers, in a wider IT support team of 10.
The role is to provide support for all IT infrastructure including all Data Centres, Servers, Networks & Telephony. In addition, you’ll act as 3rd line support to any escalated IT service desk queries. You’ll need to proactively monitor the IT Infrastructure, troubleshoot and diagnose server and network issues to ensure that the IT infrastructure is secure and operates in line with security policies and controls.
Given the technical requirement of this role, it’s important that you have the knowledge and experience with the systems you’ll be managing, which would include:
* Ideally 3 years+ experience in supporting and maintaining IT infrastructures
* Microsoft Windows Server 2008 - 2016
* Capacity planning and optimisation
* Microsoft Hyper V or equivalent experience
* Active Directory
* Microsoft Exchange
* Clustering Technologies (Server Clusters, NLB)
* Scripting and automation skills (Powershell)
* Familiarity of networking topologies (switches, VLAN trunking etc.)
* LAN and WAN management
* Monitoring and managing the availability and scalability of resources, including CPU usage, disk usage, network storage systems
* IT Security including IDS and IPS systems.
* SAN Management (Netapp or EMC preferred)
In addition, it would be great if you had some exposure to:
* Cisco / HP Pro Curve
* Fortinet / Citrix (Xen Desktop Preferred)
* Microsoft System Center / SQL Server
* Private Cloud Management / Data Centre Management
So why would you join us?
Well it’s a role that offers flexibility, you get to work within a grown up team who all understand that IT support in a law firm means it’s important to provide a guarantee of service and that sometimes means working outside of core hours - but what that doesn’t mean is that you just work longer hours than everyone else. There are some interesting projects that will allow you to learn or show off your understanding within different areas of infrastructure support, and as a growing business there are relocations, new offices, and mergers with new sites that will hopefully provide you with the challenge you’re looking for on a day to day basis, but also give you the chance to progress and develop your career.
In addition, there’s a salary between £35,000 - £40,000, good benefits and they’ll be progression opportunities – both more seniority but also in terms of learning and skill development as you go along.
So, if the above sounds attractive and you have the experience and capabilities, then we’d be keen to hear from you.
