Samantha Beckwith

Technical Recruiter at Apex Systems

I was actually reaching out to see if you knew anyone in the Nashville area that might be interested in a Disaster Recovery role for one of our clients. I briefly scanned through your profile and thought you'd be a good resource to reach out to regarding referrals your market. If you have a clone that would be ideal! :) Would love to talk to anyone you think might be a good fit for the role below. I only listed a few bullet points, but if you would like the full job description please let me know! Overview: · Great attitude, passion, collaboration, and communication (spoken & written) · Experience with BCP or DR tracking tool (e.g. Fusion) · Experience with the design, planning and testing of disaster recovery procedures. · In-depth understanding of IT infrastructure and different application architectures Process-oriented mindset and ability to change/adapt quickly.

I asked questions and got the following in return:

this is a long-term contract and we do see with our client that they usually convert over to full-time. The resource does not HAVE to have Fusion - they really are just looking for someone who can act as a liaison between application/infrastructure teams and the business continuity teams. So they are really looking for someone with a Project Coordinator/Project Management background with experience working with Disaster Recovery! Let me know if this changes anything, our pay rate we are looking at right now is $45.52/hour.
