Network Team Lead
Take your career to the next level in this leading role with FCO Services. With us, you’ll work at the cutting-edge of secure technology, helping to protect the UK’s interests around the world.
You’ll be part of the team that delivers first-class digital solutions for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and other government departments. It’s a unique opportunity to understand the challenges – and increasingly advanced threats – governments face. Crucially, you’ll also have everything you need to develop innovative, intelligent answers to meet our evolving needs.
Deliver fast and secure global networks
As the leader of our Network Operations team, you’ll make sure our customers have access to fast, reliable and secure networks. Make no mistake, it’s an absolutely crucial role. Day-to-day, you’ll take charge of our network support team, making sure any issues are resolved efficiently and taking ownership of bigger incidents yourself. You’ll also play an important part in developing and delivering new network services, liaising with a wide range of relevant stakeholders.
Use your technical expertise to drive improvements
If you have a track record of leading a network team in a highly secure environment, this challenge could be for you. As well as experience of working to ITIL3 standards, you’ll need to be a first-rate people manager who knows how to get the best out of your team.
We’ll expect you to have a Cisco qualification, F5 experience, and knowledge of Aruba AP. You’ll also need technical expertise in a range of other areas, including: Cisco Switch, Router and ASA configuration and troubleshooting; Palo Alto Firewall management; Juniper Firewalls; and encryption/tunnelling techniques.
Enhance your reputation on a bigger stage
This is an opportunity to work in a service with millions of end users in some of the UK’s most important institutions. Develop and deliver the high-quality services they expect, and you’re sure to raise your profile in many ways.
All our employees have to be security cleared to the highest level, so you’ll need to undergo a comprehensive vetting process before joining.
