Job Description

Junior Network Engineer
Abingdon
£21,000 - £22,000 + Benefits including pension + 25 days holiday + bank holidays

The Role
We are looking for a Junior Network Engineer to provide initial support for one of the fastest growing technology companies in the UK.

The company have been going through exceptional growth and as a result this is a newly created role working in a team of Network Engineers reporting into the Head of Networks.

The role is responsible for supporting the network which is Cisco and Juniper based dealing with enquires from customers. We are looking for an enthusiastic all-rounder that is keen to get their foot in the door with a fast moving environment that has a huge potential for learning. You`ll be working alongside engineers upto CCIE level so a lot of experience in the department and this will give further real world experience on top of your existing skills as you look to further your career in networking.
Your background:

You could be a graduate with a relevant technical degree, or a support engineer that has invested in recognised networking qualifications such as the Comp TIA+, CCENT or CCNA and while ideally you will have commercial networking experience, we are happy to discuss with any customer focused IT professional.

Any Juniper experience would be a real advantage, as would any exposure within an ISP/Telecoms/Technology company.

The company:

Environment wise, the closest comparison would be to describe the company as a technology start up, even though they have been in operation for a number of years and have a multimillion pound balance sheet. On
that basis, experience of having worked in a fast moving technology growth environment would be a big advantage but much of this will be down to your personality, and ability to take some responsibility from day one, and contribute to the network issues that typically are faced by a support team.

As a Junior Network Engineer you'll be involved in the following:

*Providing network services and support to customers
*Routing, VLANs, Ethernet, RSTP
*Taking ownership of issues and managing cases from beginning to end
*Ensuring that all tickets are logged and kept updated
*Liaising with 3rd party carriers
*Managing case queues using Salesforce

The Requirements

You will be a strong communicator and will be looking for an opportunity to work with cutting edge technologies in a growing company. It`s a fast moving, fluid environment and you`ll have to think on your feet - it`s something that many job specifications will say, but it is essential on this one as while the environment is becoming more structured, it`s still fluid day to day but the right person would view this as a selling point!

You will have strong analytical and troubleshooting skills and will have worked in a similar role before.
