Network Engineer
£70,000-£75,000 per annum

One of the world's leading network, cloud and hosting service providers is currently looking to bring a top-notch Network Engineer on board.

Their network connects 21 countries worldwide, and allows their business clients to gain a competitive advantage by providing the highest availability and lowest latency network in the industry.

They sound interesting, what would they like me to do?

In essence, they want you to provide the backbone to their Networks team, working to ensure that facilities and implementations run smoothly, configurations are completed in good time, and daily maintenance levels are upheld.

You'll provide Level 3 support within the NOC environment; design, deploy and support both internal and client network systems; and ensure smooth running of the LAN/WAN infrastructure - handling Level 2 and Level 3 switches.

Am I the sort of person they're looking for?

You might be. Certainly are if you have bags of energy and enthusiasm and don't crack under pressure. They put a lot faith in their Networks team, and that means you'll be working on a wide variety of BAU and project work, often having to juggle multiple tasks at the one time. You'll need to put that enthusiasm and quick thinking to good use.

This role would suit you if you are good with other people and building relationships. Collaboration is the order of the day, and you'll often find yourself working with people of various skillsets on the same project. So those skills will come in extra handy!

Are you able to undertake some international travel on occasion? It won't be very often, but this business, as I mentioned before, run a network that links 21 different countries, and that will require you to pop over to one of their international offices from time to time.

Ok, so what sort of experience do they need me to bring?

You definitely need experience of a few things:
* Fluent English
* Knowledge of routing protocols
* Firewall/Security support
* LAN Architecture
* SNMP Monitoring
* Knowledge of Linux

If you can bring these to the table, so much the better:
* Fluent French
* Control of network equipment - Cisco, Brocade, Juniper
* CCIE certification

And now the nitty, gritty. What do I get from this?

Well, you'll receive a salary of up to £75,000 per annum. Not bad at all.

They're working on their benefits offering even as you read this - but the list is going to build upon training and career development opportunities, generous holiday allowance, international travel, and flexibility to work from home or the office on occasion.

This sounds pretty good. What do I do now?

If you have your CV ready to go, that's great news! Click apply and send it through without any further delay!

If you don't have your CV quite ready yet, that's not a big deal, you can fix it up and get it over at your earliest convenience. It would be good to know you are interested though in the meantime, so feel free to drop me an email on or give me a call on 0161 835 8686.
