Your Role

As a SAM Intelligence Consultant, you’ll work with customers to provide proactive remote and on-site SAM services. This role has the support of the wider Asset Intelligence Services team, and training will be provided depending on experience. We support a variety of customers, and as you progress you can expect to work with increasingly high-profile and rewarding organisations.

You’ll perform Microsoft ELPs and lisence optimisation projects for customers, host monthly calls and meetings to assist customers, and you'll produce monthly reports for customers using data from Snow and ongoing tracking of tasks agreed with the customer. You'll need to liaise with vendors, customers and internal resource where required to ensure accurate entitlement and contract information is kept up to date and you'll work closely with customers to ensure they are achieving the maximum value from their assets.

What we need from you:


  • Ideally, you’ll need demonstrable experience of Microsoft licensing models and schematics
  • Experience of producing Microsoft ELPs is preferable, but training can be provided depending on experience
  • You will be expected to work towards the Microsoft SAM MCP qualification if not currently held
  • Licensing knowledge of Microsoft, Adobe and/or VMware is essential
  • Experience of Hardware Asset Management would be advantageous, as would experience of license management & discovery tools (e.g. Snow Software, MAPs, SCCM)
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Self-sufficient and innovative, with the ability to work autonomously as well as part of a team
  • Full driving licence
