My award winning client, based in Central Manchester, are currently recruiting for an AWS or Azure Cloud Consultant/Architect.
This is a high level role where you will help build and progress the AWS / Amazon Web Services / Azure capability for the business and help develop the strategy moving forward.
Ideally, they need someone with AWS or Azure experience (they are an AWS Advanced Partner and an Azure Gold Partner) and have ambitious plans to grow the cloud teams. They are open to candidates who dont have any AWS or Azure experience as training will be provided (to get you certified to the professional standard), however candidates with AWS / Azure experience will be strongly preferred.
Rackspace/VMware/Google Cloud experience will be considered instead of AWS or Azure but the strategy is to use AWS and Azure and to grow in these two key areas.
Recent cloud based solutions experience is a must. A solid technical background, on premise architecture and consultancy experience will be ideal.
You will be working on enterprise scale projects so excellent stakeholder/vendor management experience will be a strength.
