Job Description

Objective of Role
As a Technical Consultant you will be a very competent and skilled technician rated highly within the organisation. This role will see you assisting with design but primarily deploying Microsoft based solutions and the various networking technologies on which they, and other services, run. It will be a highly customer facing role. The daily role will involve delivering client systems, services and networks to the highest standard.

You are considered key to the technical project delivery function of the Professional Services team. You will be expected to maintain a technical understanding that is second to none and remain up to date in your knowledge of cutting edge technologies and changes within IT generally.
