Job Details

Royal Greenwich is proud to be a borough synonymous with first class modern services. A world heritage site, our communities are vibrant and diverse, and we pride ourselves on being a well-managed and well-run authority.

We have also recently published our first digital strategy. To make that strategy into a reality, we need to hire a new digital, data and technology team to join our existing skill set.

The infrastructure team will be pivotal to our ambitions to move to the cloud, use new platforms to help our staff and residents more easily use services, and strengthen our approach to security and resilience. As senior infrastructure engineer, you’ll be leading us into this new world.

You’ll lead the building, testing and monitoring new and existing services both on-prem and in the cloud. You’ll design and carry through new ways to solve complex problems and make our platforms better and easier to use. You’ll lead the configuration, documentation and support of our services,, as well as acting quickly to solve day to day issues with your team. You’ll help build investment cases for new platforms and services.

You will take pride in providing highly available stable services to allow users to perform their role uninterrupted. You will stay up to date with emerging technologies within public cloud and infrastructure. You will help to evaluate new technologies and support delivery, adoption and ongoing operational support.

You’ll be passionate about technology and offering a great user experience. You will be motivated and confident, with the ability to explain complex ideas to any audience, including senior leaders. You will be a strong leader, able to motivate other people and guide them day to day, supporting them to thrive. You’ll be able to work with suppliers, demanding the best from them while creating common goals.

You’ll be happy to do some on-call work out of hours, for which you’ll be paid. You may have a specialism within infrastructure, which is fine and we welcome that. We’re looking for people who are already in well-established infrastructure careers who are looking for leadership and seniority.

You’ll be working a mixture of home-based and office-based, with some work at remote locations to install equipment and provide infrastructure support.
