This largescale enterprise has 8000 users and 150 heads in IT.  They are right in the thick of an enormous multi-million-pound digital transformation. Arguably one of the largest end-user change projects of its kind where and roads lead to Microsoft 365!

Given the sheer scale of change, there are significant technical challenges to overcome, hence the need to hire an M365 specialist to enhance and optimise all elements of this enormous Microsoft enterprise infrastructure. This role is ideally suited to someone who wants to put their stamp on M365 over the next 6 months, although it’s likely this engagement will run and run!

What you’ll be doing!

Advising non-ICT colleagues and presenting clear accessible reports/business cases for senior managers and elected members.

Using extensive practical knowledge of Microsoft services, secure solution design, identity management and M365 services to enhance and optimise enterprise-grade Microsoft 365 products

In-depth knowledge of securing and managing application and data services including mobile apps

Operating at a senior level in a large ICT Service environment, managing and delivering change

Proven success managing large complex ICT projects and leading a project team

Knowledge of PowerShell and PowerShell scripting 

Experience in using Microsoft Compliance and Security portals

Given the size and complexity of the project, it is likely that this will be the first of many engagements, however, the initial contract is for a min of 6 months. As such this role will be outside IR35. However, it will give you the opportunity to gain invaluable experience, together with fully funded formal Microsoft training alongside many other opportunities and benefits! 

Please note, you would be expected to be on-site in Derbyshire, one to two days every two to three weeks. Start dates would be immediate or up to 4 weeks, for notice periods and there are multiple roles available. The interview process is slick, virtual and will offer first-time contractors a way into the contract market!
