- Networking knowledge (IP Networking, cabling, Cisco, network security etc)

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Service Delivery Leader or Manager who has progressed from a technical background to join a well established organisation in central Edinburgh and while this is an initial 6 month fixed term role, there is potential to become permanent.
