Job Description

Looking to make a bigger impact in your career? Join our 17-strong Infrastructure team, and you will have a fantastic opportunity to work with key secure technologies, develop specialist knowledge and skills, and enjoy some fantastic Civil Service benefits – all while helping to safeguard people, assets and information around the world.

Fix complex infrastructure issues as quickly as possible

As a subject matter expert within our 3rd line team, you’ll be responsible for solving the more complex technical problems and incidents that other engineers are unable to work out. The job involves working closely with Infrastructure teammates, as well as architects, project managers, developers and incident managers, in order to fix technical problems as quickly as possible. You will also need to identify and escalate repeatable issues to help ensure they do not happen again.

Use your expertise to benefit colleagues and customers alike

You’ll be expected to mentor junior staff members and to provide authoritative technical advice to a wide range of customers and stakeholders, including members of our change management team. It is therefore essential that you combine excellent communication skills with a solid understanding of how systems work. Specific areas of knowledge we’re looking for include:

• Linux
• SAN/backup storage knowledge,
• Apache/NGINX Server installation
• Shell Scripting
• TCP/IP Network Knowledge

Enjoy great career opportunities – and great rewards

Our government partners look to us to respond with agility and innovation to their ever-changing security challenges. So there will be plenty of opportunities for you to grapple with complex issues and find ever-more effective solutions to the issues our clients face. You will also enjoy excellent support for career progression, including training on all the latest technologies to help you keep up to speed. Then there’s all the benefits we offer. Excellent work-life balance. Flexible working opportunities. On-site OFSTED-registered nursery. Civil Service pension. And lots more. In short, it’s your job bigger.

All our employees have to be security cleared before joining us, so you will need to undergo a vetting process if you’re successful in your application. This role would require you to undergo Security Check (SC) clearance. You can find out more about vetting on our website.

This role is part of an on call rota.
