    Think salary might be on the low side for me too though
    What sort of start date is it?
    I see this as more of a techie role right? It's not technical sales , more support of the sales...? What's the scope for moving between the two..

    vik,

    Start date - we needed someone in january so ASAP.
    It is a highly technical role. The name contains "pre-sales" but that only really represents the fact that we work very closely with the lads & lasses in sales, and we're a more "outgoing" and "people friendly" set of techs (which is why I like to recruit edugeeks). Chance of moving into sales ~0% as its a different mindset.

    Also, if anyone wants to recommnd a friend, and we hire them... I am sure I can fish out some sort of monetary reward.

    The role is most likely non-transferable I'd guess as the Sales lads and lasses are Leeds Based. Southampton is the developers and gurus that are there when you get blonde IT Managers....

    ...I wish - just the sort of job I can do - being an outgoing sort of techie type - but Leeds? That's north of Watford Gap, right?
    I could be a red-headed IT manager sort of person in Southampton

    Yes, it's a leeds based role (though plenty of travel) I am afraid - we're a bit odd in our "dual home" nature! Southampton have all tech support, whilst we do sales up here in Leeds, but we have a dedicated team for planning, pre-sales help and installs, and they live here with me in Leeds. Eventually, I imagine we will get a dedicated arm of pre-sales lodged in the support office, and possibly vice-versa, but who knows.

    FWIW, there's a similar opportunity in the Southern California area if anyone is interested.

    Is working in the states considered as a hardship role? As in, do you get an allowance for being overseas? Is it easy for a brit to go there for work...? i'm learning to like the sun

    I don't know. I'm wondering about sending a brit out. It's proving to be a PITA to recruit for.

    Most of our traffic is from the USA and as of Jan 2011 we had approx. 5000 US members. Maybe worth a post in the US regional forum to see what interest it generates
