The Ashdown Group have been engaged by a hugely successful global IT business, seeking to recruit a bright and talented recent graduate in IT, networking, forensics or software engineering with excellent communication skills to join their market leading business. The successful person will also be willing to learn and receive further training in leading networking technologies and will enjoy training and certification in their world class training facilities.

You might have some IT Support experience already, but in this role you will essentially learn to deliver confident support both remotely and face to face at client sites, assisting with installations, maintenance and consultancy and demonstrate experience with administration, installation and troubleshooting of Windows or Linux based devices and networks and gain a good commercial understanding of network environments and topologies.

From your studies, you should have some knowledge of:
Common networking protocols,
TCP/IP, DHCP, DNS
routing, switching,
VPN,
Firewalls
Any knowledge or experience with Juniper, Blue Coat, Checkpoint and F5 would be particularly advantageous, but not essential to securing the role, as full training will be given.

The role will be based in the central Bristol office, but will involve being on call for Field Support up to 50% of the time. In reality, you are rarely called out. The working hours are 9am - 5.30pm, however the incumbent must demonstrate a flexible approach to working as some field work will take place outside of these times and involves some nights away. Due to contracts in place, the person to secure this role must live within 30 minutes of central Bristol.

This is an excellent opportunity for a driven graduate keen to continue their learning of networking and IT and progress their career within a truly global technology business. As well as the basic salary of between £25,000 -£30,000, depending on skills and experience, you have either generous car allowance or company car, benefits and training.
