Rare opportunity for an IT Infrastructure Engineer to join a new IT managed services consultancy that was launched last year by a highly experienced management team. With a successful track record in a previous MSP that they built over 10 years and then sold - they are financially back by a combination of recent contract and tender awards together with the personal funds realised from historical successful IT ventures. Therefore, this is an opportunity for skilled IT Infrastructure Engineers to join near the beginning of this company's journey and will offer candidates excellent career progression as the company grows quickly.
The company is a technically centric IT provider that is building on the historical success of its founders who have a strong reputation in a sector that is not affected by the current challenging conditions.
The company is seeking a likeminded, passionate, and motivated technical specialist that is ready to seize the opportunity to become part of the driving force behind the continued growth and success of the business. As we are focused on the person rather than the CV, we invite applications from those with varying experience.
*** There is a strong preference for candidates who have MSP / Managed Services exposure and/or recent accreditations such as MCSA, MCSE, MCP, VCP, VCAP or VCDX***
The role is open to IT Infrastructure candidates who have experience from 3rd Line up who have strong skills and experience in recent versions of Windows Server and VMware experience in either support and/or implementation. The most important aspect from the company's point of view is to find someone who is passionate about technology and delivering the right service & solution.
