Job Description

Grafton Technology is currently recruiting for a Level 2 IT Services Engineer on behalf of our client, a market leading consultancy based in Belfast. With an expected headcount increase of 50% this year alone this company is definitely one to watch. This is the company which many IT professionals aspire to work with during their career.

Over the last two years they have grown significantly as they have won a series of major contracts with organisations across the UK and Ireland. What sets them apart from other consultancies is that they have some of the most talented people, including IT engineers, sales professionals, and project managers in Northern Ireland. This is very much a long term career move and will open doors to opportunities not attainable elsewhere in Northern Ireland.


WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING…

Now expanding on their Tier 2 Service Desk team, there is a new opportunity for a 2nd Line Support Engineer to work within an exciting, expanding company and fast paced support environment. We are looking for someone with a flexible approach to undertake exciting new project-work as well as high-end Network and Server Support.

You must be able to demonstrate a genuine enthusiasm for IT and a willingness to remain 100% hands-on in the on-site technology. In this role you will be working as part of a dynamic service desk providing support both remotely and at customer premises working with IT users to resolve problems and answer questions on a variety of hardware components and software programs.

  • An understanding of network technologies (TCP/IP, VPN, DHCP/DNS, Firewall etc.)
  • Basic PowerShell & scripting
  • It would be a huge bonus if you have obtained recent Microsoft, Citrix, Cisco or VMware certifications


This is a project and support role with a great deal of autonomy working under the IT Operations Manager as part of a team of Support Engineers. An ability to demonstrate previous project experience with the above technologies would provide a sound base of knowledge for this role and the focus of the business.

You will benefit from working within a team of highly experienced and well qualified support specialists where best practice and knowledge is shared openly. The team are not restricted in the issues they support and are able to develop their skill-set whilst in the role.
