What we need from you
- You should hold the VMware Certified Professional for Digital Workspace (VCP-DW 2020) certification and similarly relevant VMware or Citrix focussed certifications
- You should be able to demonstrate awareness of both on-premises and cloud-based workspace architectures, how business and operation requirements drive the selection between the two approaches and how these architectures are secured and scaled
- As a Digital Workspaces (EUC) specialist you will strive to maintain awareness of newly released services and improved capabilities with VMware, Citrix, Microsoft Azure and AWS end-user-compute technologies
- Consultative skills, with the ability to identify customer challenges, requirements and business needs
- Able to work independently as well as part of a team to achieve results
- Excellent time management skills and attention to detail with the ability to meet deadlines whilst maintaining the highest quality of output
- Being able to present complex information clearly, persuasively and elegantly through presentations and whiteboarding
