    Experienced Network Engineer £30 - £35k, Middlesex

    A position is arising in my team for an experienced network engineer (we run HP ProCurves), who can also manage wireless (Aruba System), and also has a wide experience of Windows Server. We are a VMWare house, with XenApp and XenDesk, so familiarity with these technologies is desireable. This will make the IT Team up to 5 - myself, 2 techs, and an Apple specialist are already here. This position will be vital to the running of the school, so applicants should be professional with a helpful attitude, and should be flexible with regard to hours.

    A full job spec will be available shortly, which will likley contain additional items I have forgotten at this point!

    Interviews will be professional, with a third party involved who is highly technical (no tyre kickers need apply).

    Job pack going together very shortly, and will appear on website and online somewhere (I forget where!). Will post links when it's up.

    Here is the main blurb:

    Hampton School’s IT network is a critical component of the school, for staff, students and management.

    Hampton therefore requires an experienced person to assist the Network Manager in the installation, configuration and on-going maintenance of these core infrastructure and desktop systems.

    The candidate should be experienced in the following:
    • Wired Networking, preferably with HP ProCurve switches, and have a sound knowledge of networking principles including VLAN’s, VPN’s, LAN’s and WAN’s.
    • Wireless Networking, preferably with Aruba based solutions, and is comfortable managing our current 140 AP System.
    • Windows Server 2003 knowledge is compulsory, with Windows 2008/2008R2 highly recommended, any candidate must have at least 2 years’ experience supporting Windows Server 2003 or higher technologies. A good knowledge of VMware vSphere 4.x is also preferred.
    • Knowledge of Citrix products would be an advantage, specifically XenApp 4.5/5/6 and XenDesktop 4.0/5.0.

    This is a vital role in the school, and any candidate should be capable of working professionally in a demanding environment.

    Duties for this role are as follows:
    1. Install or assist in installation of all new hardware, systems, and software for both server and networking devices.
    2. Plan and support network and computing infrastructure.
    3. Monitor system performance and implement performance tuning.
    4. Document network problems and resolutions for future reference.
    5. Oversee network security.
    6. Support administration of servers and server clusters.
    7. Assist in troubleshooting analysis of servers, workstations and associated systems.
    8. Assist where necessary with general IT duties in the School.

    Additionally, this role will be required to support, where necessary, the day to day tasks of the department to include user account maintenance and general support enquiries. The general support role will normally be as second line support, however as this is a small team role flexibility is expected.

    This would make it 5. One is Apple only, and spread across three sites. One is a junior role, mostly for printer/projector/basic support. Then a general front of house guy, and myself.

    Nope. It's a slight re-organisation into front of house, and back office roles, and a more plannning and server side role for me. The three already here will be front of house, this new role will be switches and servers mostly, with planning and project input with myself. We'll both do support for back-end systems.

    It's a person who when looking at a car to buy, kicks the tyres. From that he can tell you the full history and what will happen to the car during your ownership.
