4. Collaboration: Work closely with the primary network engineer to ensure seamless integration of new solutions and maintain a cohesive and robust network architecture.

5. Immediate Contribution: As this is a contract role with a short timeframe, you must be ready to contribute from day one and work independently with minimal training.

6. Core Competencies: Demonstrate expertise in Cisco technologies, including routers, switches, and an engineer monitoring system. A background in FortiGate will be advantageous.

7. Project Management: Take ownership of the routing and switching area, access control, and overall network project, and deliver results in a timely and efficient manner.
