  • Ensure ongoing compliance with network and related security policies
  • Ensure that network and related solutions are documented, including network diagrams, “as-built” configurations, IP address data, and support procedures e.g. “how to fail-over a connection”, etc.
  • Maintain good relationships with other team members, other teams, customers and suppliers in order to maximize team working and collaboration.
  • Continue to look for ways that the service can be improved and, where agreed, lead or assist with the implementation of service improvements. In particular, focus on service automation opportunities in line with the wider hosted services strategy and available tools; continue to optimize performance, efficiency and utilization.
