About us

Want to be part of something really exciting? We are transforming the way health and care is delivered. Working with our customers, we are leading the way in the delivery of patient centred, connected, digitally enabled health and care services.


Our customers and partners are using our solutions in all health and care settings, from GP surgeries and community care to high street pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, not for profit organisations and specialist services. We are committed to developing the next generation of healthcare technology that will truly make a difference.

Your new role

As a tech professional with an interest in progressing your career within hosted engineering, you will be joining a team of Platform Consultants working remotely. At EMIS our Platform Consultants are responsible for the stability, security and availability of our Hosted infrastructure which includes; installation, decommissioning, configuration and supporting our software tech stack. This covers physical infrastructure, hypervisors, operating systems and management software such as security, monitoring and automation tools. Whilst we are moving to a more hybrid approach, at present 99% of our infrastructure is on-prem and therefore you’ll be able to utilise your experience with HyperV and VMware technology.

With some experience in a similar technical role, you will assist with BAU activities such as investigating and co-ordinating the resolution of service issues, communicating with colleagues around the business and assisting the wider Hosted Services team. An exciting challenge for you to progress within your career in technology as you will begin to assist with projects. These could be anything from building clinical systems to building patient-facing services. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to regularly use a variety of technology such as virtualising and clustering technologies (ESXi), active directory and windows server operating system.

A fantastic opportunity to join a forward-thinking team that is currently moving towards a more hybrid approach between on-prem and cloud-based services. This gives you to progress within your career and to further develop your skills around AWS/Azure.

What you’ll bring

  • We want to make sure you’re set for success so the key skills we’re looking for in the role are below. We know not everyone ticks all the boxes and we’ll provide training on some of the areas if you’re the right person for the role.
  • Desirable if you have previous experience in virtualisation and clustering technologies (Hyper-V & VMWare)
  • A natural interest in technology and desire to develop your understanding of enterprise infrastructure and applications
  • Knowledge of Microsoft System Centre suite (SCOM, SCVMM, SCORCH)
  • Troubleshooting skills with the ability to prioritise and work under pressure

What we’ll give you

As well as a competitive salary you’ll get a benefits package which includes a generous pension, a healthcare cash plan, life assurance and buying and selling of holidays.

We also take our corporate social responsibility pretty seriously and we believe in giving back to our community, so you’ll get the chance to be involved in lots of fundraising events throughout the year.

Next steps

As a Platform Consultant, you will receive continuous support throughout your career at EMIS and have the opportunity to work with four petabytes of data. The development of our employees is vital to our business and you will receive access to the learning platform Udemy to progress with your technical skills.

This role will be working partially remotely with the opportunity to work within the Leeds office. Our Platform Consultants are a brilliant team that handles challenging incidents by working individually and collectively.
