As a network manager, yours is a role of two halves. You’ll be responsible for installing and maintaining your company's computer networks, and also to train staff to provide first rate technical support.
If there are problems with the system, it’ll be down to you to have a recovery plan to minimise any disruption to the business. As most organisations are becoming increasingly reliant on technology, this makes your role particularly vital to the smooth running of the business.
Depending on the size of the organisation you may have more than one type of network to manage. As well as existing systems, you may also need to help develop new systems to assist with the continued growth of the company.
You'll work as part of an IT team with project managers, network engineers and support staff. You could also be asked to attend meetings to discuss the IT needs of the business, from an operational or profit/service related viewpoint.
