IT Project Engineer (Cloud/ Virtulisation)

Nottinghamshire | Permanent

Ref: 469

Technologies: Microsoft Environment, part Virtualised, projects moving to Azure, O365. Infrastructure support / project management and systems deployment.

Are you looking for a diverse and exciting cloud infrastructure support role leading into infrastructure project management? This is an opportunity that will open doors to new skills and experience.  

Our client is an internationally recognised, award-winning software solutions provider in Nottingham. Within their sector, they are thought of as a trailblazer, trusted brand and an organisation that positively impacts the lives of its customers through incredible technology. They have a stable workforce situated just outside of Nottingham and are about to embark on a programme of infrastructure change, implementing virtual/cloud technologies that will facilitate further technology change and transformation. 

The role involves 3rd line infrastructure support but also opens the door to Project Management / Delivery, a skill set and experience you may be interested in gaining or strengthening. IT infrastructure deployment will be delivered internally and via 3rd parties, including Microsoft partners who will be used for the ‘heavy lifting’, you’ll manage and be responsible for both. Acting as a final escalation point for issues and incidents day to day, you’ll also design and deploy Infrastructure, moving towards a virtualised, Cloud environment (Azure and AWS). Mixing what you know with new areas that will undoubtedly take you out of your comfort zone!

You’ll have an ITIL service delivery mentality, outgoing personality and desire to work in a highly visible role, supporting users and stakeholders at all levels. You’ll be at a 3rd line-level but perhaps looking for more diversity in your role. You’ll have been involved in IT projects and deployments and now be ready for the next move, perhaps more focused on the design and taking the lead on projects. You’ll have an in-depth administrative knowledge of Microsoft Windows, AD, DNS, GPO etc together with experience of virtualisation technologies, VMware (ESX, VCenter, VSAN, VDP, SRM etc.) Any previous experience of TOGAF would be an advantage but not essential. 

Although this is an office-based role, this organisation offers some flexible and home working options along with excellent benefits, holiday entitlement and a fantastic office environment with a large onsite gym.
