My employers are currently looking for someone to take over as head of one of the Computing Service's divisions: http://www.cam.ac.uk/cs/jobs/

The University has its own ducts and fibre connecting almost all University sites around the city with gigabit or 10gig ethernet. We host the EastNet POP for UKERNA, which provides connectivity for 8 universities and many 6th form colleges. We're currently replacing the old BT switch with VOIP, which will eventually be handling about 5-10,000 phones. The division also runs the CS's managed workstation service, which includes a large central filestore and public access computer rooms all over the place.

That isn't the problem. I'm just not a manager :-)

Do you think I'm qualified, I'm kinda missing being responsible for a large system (or set of)..

It's more the kind of job where you are responsible for the people who are responsible for the system: a few months ago we advertised the "networks major projects" post which would probably have been more up your street, since it should become the chief network engineer post when the current one retires.

I've pinged my network manager at CLC. This might be the type of thing that would catch his eye. He's brought college from a basic school system to something close to a small university level network, including telephones etc. He's also quite a good all round guy. Oh, and he is looking for the next move. You never know...
