To stay hands on or not stay hands on… the question facing most Senior or Lead Engineers in the tech space.



  • Stay hands on? Why not… who doesn't want to stay close to the technology. I mean technology constantly changes. Last week I bought a new iPhone and by the time I'd paid for it and left the Apple store, a newer version has been released!

  • Move into a hands off role? Ahhh… leadership. Managing people. Dictating strategy. Doing appraisals. Leading projects. Progression.


Well… what if you didn't have to choose?


How about joining an organisation where you can work in a hands on capacity with some of the latest Cloud/DevOps technologies including AWS, Terraform and Kubernetes?


But you're also leading a team, getting involved in high-level technology strategy and Cloud-based architecture in a serverless model?


Don't you deserve the best of both worlds?


One of the UK's leading IT Management Consultancies (i.e. this organisation) can offer you the best of both worlds and so much more:



  • Training - they invest thousands into each and every employee, including putting you through industry-leading certifications (e.g. Kubernetes Administrator, AWS Solutions Architect, Certified Scrum Master).

  • Reputation - they have delivered over £1 billion of Cloud-focused projects over the last 5 years, all to blue chip customers spanning Banking, Financial Services, Utilities and the Public Sector.

  • Culture - they have been voted a 'Great Place to Work' 5 years running. They are confident that number will soon become a 6.

  • Opportunity - they actively encourage self-learning and personal development. They also operate a meritocracy so just because you're the newest member of the team, it doesn't mean you cannot be considered for that promotion.

  • Technology - they are an accredited AWS, Google Cloud and Azure partner and have their fingers in a number of pies. Think AI, Machine Learning, Cloud, DevOps etc.

  • Money - they offer salaries ranging from £75,000 - £90,000 (not bad for Yorkshire), as well as annual bonuses that will take your package north of 6 figures.


Simply put… this is an opportunity that does offer the best of both worlds. However, what I think isn't really the point of this advert. The key is what you think. If you think this role can offer you something (anything) then reach out.
