Your IT infrastructure recruitment questions, answered
Can I hire either an infrastructure contractor or a permanent employee?
It is possible to find both contractors and permanent employees within infrastructure. The professional you hire is of course dependent on the type of job they need to do – some digital transformation initiatives, such as the rapid rollout of remote working systems and equipment, may be better suited to contractors. Roles that require a more constant maintenance of services, however, are probably best filled by permanent employees.
Most of all, you need to be really clear on one thing: all these professionals are in demand and competition is high, so you must act fast – plan your talent pipeline in advance, and don’t leave it too late to secure the right person.
How much should I pay an infrastructure professional when hiring?
What skills should I look for when hiring infrastructure professionals?
But, don’t forget about soft skills: it’s these which really separate the great from the average. Look for someone with the vision and ability to drive continual tech transformation, and the communication and stakeholder management skills to act as a connection between operations and software development. As the IT infrastructure of most organizations is hybrid, with in house and outsourced components, the ability to manager third party supplier is often required.
How can I assess for skills from infrastructure professionals?
Ensure they are confident communicators, adept at working with and securing buy-in both from highly technical professionals and those with far less technological know-how. Finally, make sure they come across as a technical authority on infrastructure, including data centres and the cloud.
Is competition for infrastructure talent high?
Furthermore, as a result of the mass rollout of remote working and ongoing migration to the cloud, contractor infrastructure specialists are still highly sought after, as are 2nd line support engineers – there will, after all, always be teething issues when implementing something new.
