When you join Verizon

Verizon is a leading provider of technology, communications, information and entertainment products, transforming the way we connect across the globe. We’re a diverse network of people driven by our ambition and united in our shared purpose to shape a better future. Here, we have the ability to learn and grow at the speed of technology, and the space to create within every role. Together, we are moving the world forward – and you can too. Dream it. Build it. Do it here.

What you’ll be doing...

Working within the pre-sales organisation you will support our enterprise clients, helping them to embrace innovation and drive change, not just react to it. Working closely with core sales and other pre-sales functions (such as pricing, contract management, legal etc.) your role will be aligned to specific sales teams or supporting a larger group of customers in EMEA. This position presents the opportunity to participate in our internal “learning-on-the-job” program and equip you with the skills and knowledge to progress your career within the pre-sales function. Here you’ll combine technical and presales training with real world experience.

You will continuously acquire and grow knowledge in Verizon’s technology offerings by completing training, attending corporate partner and vendor presentations, acquiring certifications, and assisting with specialized project requests.

As a partner with our clients, Solution Architects of any level are focused on the business problems that we aim to solve, not just the technologies that we use. You will become an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) professional who consults, designs, documents and presents to both IT & non-IT business Executives.

You will be expected to get up to speed quickly on basic foundational knowledge of Wide Area Networking technologies. You will have an aptitude to learn the business value and technical details of Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization. Additionally, you’ll need to work as a generalist, learning and supporting related technical domains (like Security and Unified Communications & Collaboration).

Other responsibilities:

  • Support higher level Solution Architects with their responsibilities.
  • Take ownership of work where required.
  • Provide pre-sales customer support, guidance and insight for activities focused on standard product based solutions.
  • Build and develop relationships with peers and client stakeholders, and participate in on-going governance programs to ensure best practice/effective communication.

What we’re looking for...

You'll need to have:

  • Some workplace experience, ideally in a business to business environment.
  • Experience of working with office tools such as Microsoft Office products or Google Suite (or similar).
  • Experience of delivering presentations, within either an academic or professional environment.

Even better if you have:

  • Work experience relevant to this job.
  • Academic qualifications in a STEM subject.
  • Ability to explain technical concepts to various audiences.
  • Strong communication skills, with the ability to convey thoughts and ideas effectively, whilst also listening to your audience and understanding their objectives.
