Field Hardware Engineer (Storage) required for my client based in Basingstoke for a permanent role, salary up to £28K + on call (£3-3.5K).
My well established client are seeking a Field based Engineer who can provide support for the hardware element of Storage systems.
The work will include hard drive swaps and remote log analysis for RAID systems across multiple vendors.
The role is split approximately 50% in the office and 50% out in the field, so the Engineer should be based within a commutable distance of Basingstoke.
The majority of the work can be carried out within a day, but there will be the very occasional overnight stay required (once per month, or every other month)
Travel for the position will be based within England, with a particular concentration of work situated around the Thames Valley and London (when travelling to London you will travel by train), but there will certainly be work further afield as well.
You will need to drive and have your own vehicle. When out performing field work, there are pool cars to use. You must be over the age of 25 to meet with my client's business car insurance policy.
You will be working a 37 hour week, usually 9am - 5:30pm, however 1 week in 5 will involve a 4pm - 12pm shift.
Once trained you will be part of an on call rota, 1 week in 6, however incidents are rare, and you will receive extra remuneration for this (around £3-3.5K over the year, with further remuneration for any incidents actioned). Any late working will be compensated for with time off in lieu. There may also be opportunities for overtime.
Due to the nature of the customers you will be visiting, you will be required to be eligible for DBS checks, and some basic financial checks.
My client are very open to the background of the Engineer they are seeking, but ideally you will possess knowledge around some of the following areas:
· RAID / NAS / SAN / Tape based storage systems
· Have previous field based experience
· General IT awareness
This is an excellent opportunity to break into the Storage industry.
Please apply ASAP for more information.
