Assignment History

(This Candidate has recently been shortlisted or contracted for the following people4 assignments)

  • Cisco Engineer - Urgent: Freelance Cisco engineer required for ad-hoc VPN tunnel set-ups on an ASA5510 Firewall. Work can be done remotely after initial meeting. Urgent Requirement.
  • VOIP Technician: Need a VOIP technician for help in setting up small office IPPBX and 4 VOIP phones. Have all the equipment brand new, just need help by either remote access, MSN, or phone to help configure the system ASAP. Please apply if you can help over the christmas period. Ideally looking for set up to be completed on or before 5th Jan.
  • Wireless Network Engineer: We require a wireless network engineer to go out to sites and complete site survey and return to site to complete installation.
  • Cisco: Our client needs someone with a high level of expertise configuring Cisco Routers for Voice Calls. The model of the route they have is a rather old Cisco 3745. The suitable freelancer would work remotely by accessing the unit across a VPN. The estimate is that this could take a few days depending on the candidate experience. If you’re interested and would like to find out more please contact Hannah Cockill at People4business.
  • Cisco Engineer: Hi, I'm a freelance IT consultant who needs a Cisco engineer to configure my Cisco ASA 5505. I've created a network design, and have managed to log on to the 5505, but unfortunately I've forgotten most of what I learned when I took the CCNA. Basically, I feel I could eventually do this, but I just don't have the time and would much rather get someone who knows what they're doing to simply get on with it.
