Lead IT Engineer required to join a leading broadcast facility based in London, on a permanent basis.

As Lead IT Engineer you will be the key person responsible for the IP network architecture, suggesting ideas for new workflow projects and handling challenging complex interrelated networks.

Key experience also includes knowledge of Linux OS (Redhat/CentOS), maintenance of network equipment and virtualisation using VMWare.

This role would suit someone with experience of stepping into a senior role with a desire to lead, excellent communication skills and the ability to adapt appropriately to clients, staff or colleagues.

This is a great opportunity to join a leading broadcast company producing a range of live content, so if you feel you have the skills and experience to be successful in this role then please apply now for consideration.  Please note, only applicants who are already fully eligible to live and work in the UK without the need for visa sponsorship can be considered.
