Cisco Network Engineer

6 Month initially with potential to extend. Immediate start possibility - interviews next week.

This role is based North of the Brisbane CBD

Our client is a leading Australian institution looking for a dedicated and experienced Cisco Network Engineer.

The purpose of this role is to work alongside our Client's engineer(s) to ensure our Client receives expert technical delivery covering BAU whilst they upgrade all aspects of their network.

Due to the nature of this project this is a very hands on role requiring an experienced, autonomous, technically astute engineer. The client infrastructure is predominately Cisco with Routers and Switches numbering in the high hundreds connecting multiple geographically diverse sites. You must be able to visualize remote sites from the Router console and be confident enough to cover day to day operational tasks and BAU with a minimum of direction.

You will cover BAU as multiple projects cut over from one network provider to another, and have the following type of core skills:

Cisco 6500/Nexus 7000 Series
An excellent understanding of TCP/IP
IP services over Frame-relay, ATM, X25 ISDN (PRI and BRI) and E1/T1
IP services on Ethernet, FastEthernet, Token-ring, FDDI
IP VPNs using MPLS, MBGP and BGP

Hands on Cisco, Cisco, Cisco with excellent troubleshooting experience

A thorough understanding of network security would enhance you application - although this is a more network engineer than security engineer role.

The ability to work autonomously with very minimal supervision is a key element of this role. You must have excellent communication skills and a proven certified Cisco history.

Please state how your skills & experience match the requirements of this position, your salary expectations and your availability.

Due to current response rates, ONLY SHORT LISTED CANDIDATES WILL BE CONTACTED. Thank you.
