Job Description

The Role: Solutions Architect (Cisco)
Location: Basingstoke
Package: £60,000-70,000 basic plus benefits including 15% bonus, pension, 25 days holiday and more

The Opportunity:

We are looking for a Cisco network designer to work for a household name telecommunications company.

Working as a Solutions Architect as part of a national team, this is a varied role that will be fundamentally based on your detailed Cisco data / design network skills, but it`s not just that technology knowledge that we`ll be looking for - we are looking for LAN/WAN Cisco design experience but then the ability to evolve into a true architect & consultant role that will own and drive customer solutions throughout the entire life cycle.

We'll help you get to the point where you`ll lead the technical solution, initially documenting and agreeing customer designs and process considerations, collating costs and assessing the technical risk on a per project basis. The further varied nature of the role comes from supporting product management, engaging with vendors and supporting with business-wide change initiatives as required.

These are enterprise level customer solutions with tier one customers in both the public and private sector.

Your background:

These roles are challenging and varied, and you`ll display aspects of solutions architecture as your main skill but then we would be hoping for the ability to get involved in pre-sales & service delivery.

The positions will suit a professional that comes from a technical background, and as a Cisco gold partner, Cisco data networks (L1, L2 and L3 with CCNP R & S as a minimum) and large scale LAN/ WAN solutions at carrier level are being assumed. You will also have previous pre sales experience.

It`s a data bias role, but the more exposure you have to voice, the better.

Ideally you`ll have worked for a Telco, ISP or systems integrator but we are open minded on this.

It`s not just a pure technical position so you`ll need the personality to match but we think it gives a senior network engineer with great customer skills to chance to move into a true, all round position.

The Company:

National telecommunications company with a market leading reputation for working environment, training and development prospects. A Cisco gold partner that will support and encourage you to reach your technical goals, and hopefully join the number of CCIE engineers in the business already.

In our experience, one of the few companies that actually live up to their mission statement and while it`s a hard working, fast moving environment they try to not take themselves too seriously so you`ll need to bring a sense of humour alongside your technical knowledge.

Salary for this Solutions Architect role is up to 70K plus Benefits package is flexible but includes bonus of upto 15% of salary, excellent pension scheme, private healthcare and a list of other things to choose from
