Live Job Roles This Week At Bristow Holland


As both a hirer and a candidate, Bristow Holland has been my IT recruiter of choice for the past decade. I was recently placed by Harry, who was imaginative to suggest an opportunity that I might not have immediately considered myself. He showed good communication and good humour throughout, which was very much appreciated.

How to create the framework for success: Making it make sense

Making it
make sense

Before we can make matches for either the candidate or employer, we need to make sure the proposition is sensibly aligned with the market. Only a specialist with a deep understanding of the sector can do this. For hirers, this means defining what you want to achieve with your new employee. For tech specialists, we’ll go over your experience, expectations and priorities for the future. If they all add up we can make things happen.

Finding a high-value match for both parties means everyone needs to bring their A-game. Throughout the search, selection and interview process, we ensure both businesses and specialists convey their value with clarity and honesty, so each understands and trusts what the other brings to the table.

Frequently asked questions

Still not found the answer you are after? Speak to one of our specialists today!
How do I get into DevOps, Networks and Cybersecurity roles?

The most straightforward route is via a good degree in Computer Science with experience or a specific interest in networking, IT infrastructure and associated security systems. This should help you appeal to prospective employers. Apprenticeships will also help you to get a foot on the ladder into a service desk post, and with experience you will be able to progress from there.

What is the career path in DevOps or Cybersecurity?

Entry-level roles would be at a service desk position initially, if you’re not degree-qualified, then progressing to IT Support, IT Analyst, and further to Systems Administrator and Infrastructure Engineer and Analyst. After this, you would specialise and branch off into aspects of IT/Tech infrastructure management like storage, messaging, networking, security or a managerial position.

How much should I expect to earn in DevOps, Networks and Cybersecurity jobs?

Salary for an entry-level role on a service desk would start at £16k-17k (apprenticeships usually £10k), progressing to around £45k a year for the most senior engineer positions. 

Do certifications or qualifications matter for DevOps and Cybersecurity jobs?

They can help back up your candidacy, but the reality is that if you have experience in the right areas for a particular role, then we will personally talk to employers who might have skipped your CV about how you are the most fitting engineer for the job. Knowing your way around certain systems, networks and servers can carry more weight than any qualification on paper.

What should I be targeting in my next DevOps, Networks and Cybersecurity job?

The hot topics and skill-sets that we are seeing right now in this field are obviously cyber security, the Cloud, storage, virtualisation and networking. With more and more networking, storage and business being conducted online, demand for engineers with knowledge in these areas is only going to carry on growing.

When is the best time to leave my current DevOps or Cybersecurity job?

You will know when you should leave your current job in tech/IT infrastructure support when you can see there is no progress taking place at the company. You might notice that your department is not keeping pace with the latest developments in hardware, the Cloud, or virtual networks, nor reaching out to new clients. This is a sign that eventually you will only be dealing with heritage technology and your knowledge and value in the industry will fall behind that of most contemporary engineers. If you want to keep progressing in your career, then this is the point you need to assess your options and see what else might be out there for you.
