Job description

This contract with our central government client is for a Senior Network Operations Engineer for 6 months. The role is located in Central London and requires you to live within an hour and a half from the location.  

As well as taking part in interesting and ever-changing work where no two days are the same, you’ll be working in an environment that is supportive and inclusive. The team consists of people from various technical and business backgrounds who pull together to get the work completed. Your opinion will be valued and listened to and you will have the chance to help contribute to the strategic direction of future architecture of IT network. They offer relevant training opportunities alongside support from expert colleagues.    

As the team works on bringing new services and applications to their users, you will be a part of those projects and will be responsible for designing, procuring, and deploying the network infrastructure elements required to achieve the business requirements of the organisation.  

In their small team, you’ll have the chance to get involved in a wide range of projects, some of which may be outside of your day-to-day responsibilities, which will enable you to broaden your technical skills.  

 

Key Responsibilities:  

• Management of network infrastructure and devices including switches, routers, firewalls, and load balancers.  

• Monitoring network performance and ensuring system availability and reliability.  

• Ensuring the system remains secure by implementing best practices and procedures.  

• Designing, procuring, implementing, and fully documenting new solutions and improving resilience of the current environment.  

• Dealing with network incidents, performing failover operations, and managing the resolutions of faults, working with third parties where necessary.  

• Progressing continual service improvement by looking at new technologies, identifying gaps in existing services and how these could be bridged to help drive the roadmap for the team.    

• Assisting with the delivery of projects in the wider Service Delivery team, focusing on the network infrastructure element of the project.  

• Supporting the Head of IT Service Delivery to deliver projects to meet business requirements on time and within budget, from procurement to the delivery of the service.  

 

Daily actives will include:  

• Investigating faults in systems, processes, and services, and advise on the implementation of appropriate solutions and preventative measures.  

• Performing network maintenance and system upgrades including service packs, patches, hot fixes, and security configurations.  

• Supporting and administering firewalls.  

• Support in the procurement and management of services and equipment.  

• Plus, many more ad hoc technical, commercial, and business activities required in support of team’s work.
