About my client
My client is a local, privately owned consulting and IT managed services organisation based on the city fringes, near tram and parklands.

They share the profit across the whole company and there is no hierarchy, as they have a very flat org chart. I have been recruiting for them on and off since 2013.

Unlike a lot of the “big” MSPs they don’t care if you don’t have certs. If you can do the job that’s good enough! If you have an interest in doing certs, however, you will be able to study during working hours, take paid time off to sit the exams and have the cost covered. You will be fully supported to further your professional development, this can include working towards certifications, attending conferences, webinars, networking events, tech sessions held by vendors etc

This is a consulting role and you will need to account for your time - the old "billable" hours. But they will not flog you like the Big 4 do. You will have work life balance and the opportunity to study whilst working and participate in industry events, networking events, social events and more.
