Keep vital systems up and running for Counter Terrorism Policing
Behind the scenes. Working 24/7. Keeping the UK safe. Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) plays a crucial role in national security - and so could you. As a Senior IT Support Engineer, you'll use your expertise to keep crucial systems running so our team can perform at their best. If you want to learn new IT skills, build a career and do your bit for the country, join us at the Met.
Joining the London unit of the National Counter Terrorism ICT Support team, you'll support systems associated with the National Digital Exploitation Service. It involves managing existing infrastructure based around Windows Servers and virtualisation, Cisco networks and Dell storage. Day to day, you'll make sure the estate is operational and working at its best by performing backups, applying patches and installing upgrades.
To look after a full stack estate of hardware, network, storage and applications you'll need a rounded IT skillset. We're looking for Microsoft Servers, virtualisation and Cisco device configuration in particular. You'll have honed this expertise in an enterprise IT support capacity, within an ITIL service environment. Now, you're a confident, proactive IT professional who knows when to patch systems. You'll also be flexible enough to deal with critical issues outside working hours and drive to other London sites if necessary. A clean UK driving licence is therefore essential.   
Discover a fascinating role that's key to the success of Counter Terrorism Policing. As part of our team, you can expect a range of benefits plus the chance to develop.
