  • Prior experience with core IT networking systems including MS Server or cloud environments (AWS / Azure).

  • Full, unrestricted rights to work in the UK (British, holds indefinite leave or EU settled status). Applicants with time-restricted visas or visas requiring company sponsorship will not be considered.

The role can be office based or hybrid (minimally 2 days in the office).
