Currently I am contracting as a consultant (Technical Director) providing presales support in renewable energy systems. Other parts of the role involve sourcing components from the Far East, vetting dealers, site surveys, bid responses, ITTs and internal and external project management. I have recently completed a Prince 2 management course and a Cisco CCNA course.
Earlier this year I was working as a SC Cleared Presales Consultant working with Nice Voice Recording – Quality Management Technologies for the Public Safety Market. My responsibilities included the Solution design and architecture of elaborate Voice Recording Solutions and Applications. I also presented Voice Recording solution designs and customised product demonstrations at all levels/audiences being technical or commercial.
This also involved providing technical expertise to meet the technical and business requirements in customer meetings.
My role involved providing Sales proposals, quotes, technical responses, solutions and pricing for Tenders, ITTs, RFQs. This would also involve liaising with Product Management, R&D for any customisation work that needed to be done via a commitment process. Working with product management to identify gaps in the product portfolio was another facet of my role.
The second part of my role involved planning installs with the customer for handover to the services team.
The tertiary part of my role was to perform onsite installations on rare occasions to assist the regional services teams. This allowed my technical knowledge to remain up to date and keep a close relationship with the customer.
I had attained the Chartered IT Professional Qualification from the British Computer Society whilst at Nice. I have always been able to work dynamically and multi-task multiple projects on my own initiative and have excellent problem solving/analytical skills.
