Your infrastructure job questions, answered

Are there lots of IT infrastructure jobs available?

Yes, definitely. The shift to remote and hybrid working means there has been a spike in demand for cloud infrastructure skills, in services such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.
Also in the spotlight? Contractor infrastructure specialists, who are needed due to the continued building of new equipment, and second line desktop support experts, who have increased in strategic importance as cloud services continue to be rolled out. There will, after all, always be teething issues when implementing something new.

Which industries are hiring for infrastructure jobs?

The public sector, and the NHS in particular, has prioritised infrastructure hiring over the past year. Cracks in the digital infrastructure of many organisations were exposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, accelerating the roll out of transformation programmes to meet service needs and access operational data.
As a network engineer, infrastructure engineer, infrastructure manager or infrastructure architect you’ll be in a strong position to secure a new opportunity.

Are there both temporary and permanent jobs in infrastructure?

As a rule, there tend to be more permanent opportunities in IT infrastructure. Its focus on consistent, robust service delivery and business continuity means opportunities are often longer term rather than project based.
But, the increasing number of digital transformation initiatives means contractor roles are also available for migrations and other one-off projects, particularly if you have niche expertise.

What salary can I expect in infrastructure?

This will depend on the role, location and company. At the more junior end, service desk analysts can expect anything ranging from £23,000 to £28,000, whilst 2nd Line Support analysts might see an average of £28,000 to £33,000.
At the more experienced end of the scale, a salary for an infrastructure engineer or network engineer salary might range from £35,000 to £50,000 dependent on experience, with an average salary of £45,000, and a day rate of £350 to £450. An infrastructure architect salary might average £83,000 and above in London.

Which infrastructure skills are in demand?

Cloud skills have seen sustained demand since the pivot to remote working and will continue to do so.
Cyber security skills are also sought after, and if you’re an infrastructure engineer looking to upskill, you might consider moving into a network security or security specialist role.
Whilst technical skills remain essential, softer ones such as stakeholder engagement also help an infrastructure manager secure buy-in on changes and new initiatives from varying audiences.

What qualifications will help me in infrastructure?

If you’re a network engineer you should consider Cisco qualifications such as CCNA, CCNP and CCIE. Infrastructure engineers working on remote servers would find VMware certifications useful.
If you’re looking to better understand how business objectives and digital and IT capabilities inform each other, you could consider a move into service management. Both IT and infrastructure aligned, industry-standard service management qualification ITIL uses a systematic approach.
It covers both continuous improvement and service strategies and will help you to adapt infrastructures at your own organisation and give you the agility to react quickly to change.
