Cisco Network Engineer - Leeds - £25k-£35k

I am currently looking for a Cisco Network Engineer to join my clients Infrastructure & support team in their Leeds city centre offices. Salary £25k-£35k depending on experience and skills.


You will be responsible for troubleshooting and diagnosing network related issues as well as expanding the network and where applicable re-configuring networking equipment based on provided specification.


You will need to have a deep understanding and knowledge of the following technologies:

  • Network provisioning/Addressing (IPv4 & IPv6)
  • Network troubleshooting
  • Routing (BGP, iBGP, OSPF, IS-IS) on Cisco, Juniper and/or Brocade hardware
  • Switching (VLAN, STP, MPLS, LACP) on Cisco, Juniper and/or Brocade hardware
  • Firewalls (Cisco, Juniper, Linux/*BSD)
  • VPNs SSL/IPSec (Cisco, Juniper, Linux)


Cisco Certification is advantageous but it no means a pre-requisite. Experience is more important than certifications. Knowledge of Linux systems and VOIP Platforms running on Linux would be highly advantageous but not necessary. Experience working in a Carrier or Service Provider environment is desirable but again not absolutely necessary.


You'll have a 'can do' attitude and be able to show initiative and the acumen to learn quickly. You'll be working in an energetic, fast paced environment with early responsibility. You will take part in the on-call rota providing 24/7 support and you will be interacting with our customers, suppliers, contractors, team members, senior management and directors and therefore excellent communication skills and the ability to work to deadlines and flexible hours are essential.
