An exciting opportunity has arisen for a permanent Network Field Engineer in a Film & TV Production Company, based in Hayes. We're looking for a smart candidate who doesn't necessarily have film based technical experience, but does have a passion for Network Infrastructure. You'll be working in a fast paced environment with high expectations and constrained resources, but with your knowledge and skill set you will help to support many of the largest feature films produced in the UK and across the world.
