We pride ourselves on the positive impact diversity has and promote inclusivity and equality of opportunity for all. Our recruitment process is anonymised, which means that your name, date of birth and other personal details will not be seen by the sift panel.

Job description

At DVLA Digital we focus on user needs, whether that is a citizen, an organisation, or an internal user. We are committed to providing the most efficient, effective, and secure services to meet the needs of a diverse and ever growing digitally aware customer base.

We are seeking a Lead Infrastructure Engineer to join our Telecoms Team. In this role, you will lead diverse projects to deliver the benefits of our new cloud omni-channel contact centre system. As a subject matter expert, you will leverage your extensive systems knowledge or deep product expertise to drive improvements and develop team members.

You will lead and manage a variety of projects focused on enhancing our cloud omni-channel contact centre system. Acting as a key subject matter expert, you will apply your broad systems knowledge or specialised product insights to the role. You will provide guidance and mentorship to team members, fostering professional growth. Reviewing and improving existing processes to enhance service delivery and implement technical best practices will be a key part of your responsibilities. Additionally, you will serve as the escalation point for 4th Line Engineers, overseeing work plans and providing general support.

To qualify for this role, you should have proven experience in infrastructure engineering within a telecoms environment, along with strong expertise in cloud omni-channel contact centre systems. The ability to work independently and lead projects with minimal supervision is essential. Excellent problem-solving skills and a proactive approach to process improvement are necessary, as well as experience in mentoring and developing technical teams.

There may be an opportunity going forward to participate in an out-of-hours support rota which will attract an additional allowance. Please note this rota will operate 5pm – 7am Mon-Fri and 24/7 on weekends and public holidays.

Join us and be a part of a team that is driving innovation and excellence in our cloud-based contact centre solutions.

Your responsibilities will include but will not be limited to:

  • Overseeing programmes and projects.
  • Working with technical architects to translate the architectural designs into operations and support technical architects in operationalising the designs.
  • Leading and directing infrastructure specialist teams in building, managing, supporting and maintaining solutions according to departmental policy (if taking a managerial path).
  • Advanced problem solving to meet the needs of telephony customers and supporting other technical leads where appropriate.
  • Working in teams to deliver continual improvements.

For further information about the role please see the attached role profile.

Additional Information

Applications will be accepted for full time. Full time roles at DVLA consist of 37 hours per week. To contact the vacancy holder, please use the job contact details listed under ‘Contact point for applicants’.

Person specification

With expertise in Telecoms and communications, you will excel in managing high-volume omni-channel call centre technologies and possess a keen eye for detail. You will have a strong understanding of cloud-based contact centre solutions (CCaaS) within telephony. You will proactively stay abreast of new products, tools, and techniques, promoting their use within the business to enhance capability continuously.

In this essential role, you will plan, support, and lead the development and implementation of new technologies. Your responsibilities will include providing support to junior staff and fostering successful relationships with key stakeholders.

We strive to ensure that DVLA is a great place to work where everybody can be their true self, be treated with dignity and respect, and according to their individual needs. We have a number of staff network groups run by staff to support their colleagues.
