Hi MSCUG members,

I just placed a candidate with this Manager and he is looking to hire another talented SCCM Administrator. If you are open to exploring this opportunity please message or call me direct at 612-216-8438.

The Manager is looking for candidates who are more experienced as an SCCM Administrator on the Server side as opposed to the Desktop side. Additional assets include having the SCCM Certification and 3-5 years of experience using SCCM in a large corporate environment patching servers.

This is a permanent opportunity that will move fast, your information will go directly to the manager and an interview will be set up for next week.

Warm Regards,

Chris Massey
