If you’re a literary fanatic you’ll know that William Cowper first used the phrase “variety is the spice of life” and, if you’re not, you’ll have heard that phrase whenever someone gets you to try something new. With this role, we’re combining the two and offering you something new where you’ll get to work across multiple projects and technologies.

Our client have been working in the IT industry since Garfield made his debut in comic strips. They cover everything from IT Solutions through their MSP, to integrations of software packages and to security of infrastructures. Working across the UK with a large customer base they’re certified across multiple technologies, vendors and accreditations.

What you’ll be doing…
We’re looking for a pre-sales / technical consultant who can work with multiple departments to create solutions for customers. You’ll be involved in the full life-cycle of projects; assessing customer requirements, carrying out assessments of client infrastructures, producing HLD/LLD proposals and creating the technical solutions from scratch. Due to the variety of the services you could be working on multiple product offerings for clients; cloud migrations, storage solutions, virtualisation refreshes, infrastructure upgrades etc.

Luckily, you’ll have a good team to work with where you can work in a collaborative manner across projects. You’ll be providing technical guidance / advice to sales consultants, working with product development teams to create new solutions and working with the technical team to implement the solutions.

About you…
You are a nice person, who likes working with people to create solutions to help them. Yes IT costs but ultimately you’re helping someone to achieve what they need. From a background, you can either have come from a pre-sales / technical consultant background; already dealing with multiple customers to create solutions. Or, you’ll be in a technical position and look to step into a more consultative role where you can use share your knowledge with clients to create the infrastructure they desire.

What we are looking for…
As mentioned above, you may be from a technical background (3rd / 4th line, sys admin, infrastructure manager etc) or you might already be in a pre-sales / technical consultant role but we’re looking for skills / knowledge in the below areas;
* A sound knowledge across all IT Infrastructure (Networking with Cisco, Citrix etc / Office365 / Exchange) products and services.
* Experience with servers (Windows, HP, Linux etc), virtualisation (VMware, HyperV etc) and cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP etc) technologies.
* Ability to create technical HLD/LLD solutions across storage, disaster recovery, backups, hosted environments and infrastructure refreshes.
* Ability to engage with external stakeholders at all stages of the project lifecycle.
