Network Field Engineer - South Wales

  • Reference IP28495-PD
  • Rate £180/day
  • Location Newport
  • Job type Contract

Network Field Engineer - various sites across South, West and Mid-Wales and some in Gloucester.
£150- £180 p/day & mileage expenses

Short term 2 month contract initially to finish off a project - may go on slightly longer though

We're looking for a Junior Network Field / Support Engineer who is confident with HP switches and able to travel to individual sites across Wales and the South West each day to help our client roll-out Multiprotocol Label Switching ( MPLS ) at around 20-30 offices to help improve their telecommunications networks.

The main Head Office for our client is near Newport but you'll be travelling to various sites up to Mid-Wales, West Wales and Gloucester during your time with them so you could just as easily be based in Newport, Cardiff, Bridgend, Rhondda, Cwmbran or Merthyr for this contract.

So you will definitely need your own car (mileage from home expensed) and be comfortable with travelling to various sites for this role (although your time on each site is likely to be fairly short so you should be home every night - no overnight stays are predicted).

You won't need to necessarily be CCNA qualified or be required to manage switch call stacks within Cisco, it's a fairly straight forward role that you will be able to handle if you've had a bit of experience with this type of work before. If you have some good experience with basic cisco and HP for small office setups and this sounds right for you please get in touch asap.

It's fairly urgent so likely to be a quick telephone interview and then an immediate start if that works for you. Please don't delay in applying if you're at a loose end for a couple of months or so and this sounds of interest to you.
