IT Infrastructure Engineers Ref. 1016
Do you want to be part of an organisation that uses cutting edge technology, makes a real difference to the UK, provides excellent development opportunities, and gives you the chance to build an exciting, challenging and varied career? If you already work in the technology sector, our organisation has a wide number of technology-related roles available, to which applicants are able to apply at any time.
Our organisation is tasked with protecting the country’s people, businesses and interests in the cyber age. Working with colleagues in MI5, SIS (MI6), the MOD, the National Crime Agency, the police, academia (and many others), we gather and analyse intelligence from digital and telecommunications sources, and ensure that IT networks, systems and data are secured against hackers and other threats. Nowhere else will you be able to apply your technology expertise in such a unique environment, against such a varied set of challenges and with such interesting colleagues!
Our organisation has headquarters in Cheltenham – geographically located within an hour of Bristol and Birmingham – as well as Bude, Harrogate, Lincolnshire, Manchester, London and Scarborough. Despite the (necessary) secrecy around some of what we do, the urgent nature of our mission means there will always be opportunities to work with partners, industry and academia from across the UK, and even to re-locate between offices.
At our organisation we’re proud of our inclusive and supportive working environment that’s designed to encourage open minds and attitudes. Just as we offer a wide range of roles – specialist, technical as well as more general roles (HR, project management, finance, leadership…) - so too do we welcome applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. To do our job – which involves solving some of the hardest technology problems the world faces - we need all talents and we need people who dare to think differently. In return, along with excellent training and development options, we’re committed to providing a healthy work/life balance that enables you to perform to the best of our ability.
We build, maintain and support some of the country’s most complex and powerful computing and processing estates. While we deploy the most cutting-edge technologies available, we also support some critical infrastructure that is decades old. This requires a high level and variety of expertise. So we have a range of roles involving IT solution architecture and design, network design and implementation or deep technical second and third level support. Most of these roles also involve providing technical consultancy and advice, so you could be working closely with other teams and solution providers to define IT requirements and assure solutions for a range of projects.
