Job Title: Field IT Technician + Lead Technician (EPOS WiFi)
Location: Gloucester (UK Travel)
Salary: £22,000-24,000 / £28,000 to £32,000
Benefits: Pension, Bonus and generous holiday entitlement
We are recruiting for a leading provider of event food & beverage solutions in the UK that operate at over 200 events a year, working in partnership with prestigious sporting and entertainment venues such as Silverstone, Twickenham and Wembley.
ICT will play a major part in their expansion and development over the next five years, as they seek to exploit emerging technologies to enhance efficiency and meet both client and consumer expectations. This role has been created to deliver and support on-site services for our event teams, including WiFi, EPOS and card payments but the future possibilities are endless.
If you prefer not to be cooped up in an office, enjoy the buzz of events and aren’t worried about crowds, but enjoy technical challenges then this could be the role for you.
You should have demonstrable experience of deploying and managing WiFi networks within high density environments, and deploying and supporting satellite connections; you must possess good Layer 2 knowledge (reasonable IP knowledge including subnets, routing, VLANS etc.); you should have experience of CAT-5 cabling, fibre, and PoE; you have proven understanding and experience of PSTN (DSL & ISDN) and VoIP.
However, good technical skills alone will not be enough; to succeed you will require good planning and time management skills with the ability to prioritise appropriately and meet challenging deadlines, and equally good communication skills with the ability to build effective business and colleague relationships, and explain solutions to a non-technical audience.
It goes without saying that this role involves the need to work longer days around events and stay away from home frequently (including at weekends). You will need bags of stamina, a flexible attitude and the ability to remain calm under pressure.
