Exciting opportunities have arisen within the Digital Services Team at the Scottish Prison Service as we recruit for a VOIP Infrastructure Specialist on a full time basis, working 37hours per-week.

You will be responsible for assisting in the support of the SPS' Cisco VOIP infrastructure, which is in the process of being implemented. This role will also involve general support and maintenance of the SPS's network & Security infrastructure. You will provide guidance on relevant issues to management and support teams, as well as participate in exciting assignments and projects with minimal direction from higher level resources.

Whilst the Digital Services Team are based in Edinburgh Headquarters, this role is open to hybrid working, meaning we won't specify how many days must be worked in the office, but rather based on business needs, expectations and a degree of personal choice. We care about how you work rather than where you work and we'd welcome a conversation with the successful candidates on what remote working may look like for you.

We are providing voice and video call technology and looking to provide these services into individual rooms alongside a self-service portal with access to online services. We are also looking at data warehousing, data analytics and artificial intelligence to support staff decision making and develop a new case management platform to support staff with the prisoner journey.

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or relevant experience in a large geographically distributed environment
  • Experience of working in the Unified Communications Support/Design fields
  • Experience or strong working knowledge of multiple Video Conference platforms (e.g. Polycom, Tandberg, Cisco etc.)
