Valcon UK are looking to recruit a very experienced, self-motivated, highly logical and intellec-tually curious Senior Principal Cloud Consultant to join and lead our expanding Cloud capability in the UK. As a growing business area, the ideal candidate will have the opportunity to help shape the technical and business landscape, whilst delivering a variety of challenging projects.

As a Senior Principal Cloud Consultant, you will take the lead in in developing the cloud capa-bility whilst also leading a team of cloud engineers working on client projects.

You will be:

Joining one of the fastest growing consultancies in Europe. We are now 1500+ people. We’re doers who think. Who can take the client’s strategy, turn it into an actionable blueprint and help the client get it done. Who have deep expertise in operationalising strategy, process design, digitisation, data and analytics, automation, technology and change. But because the whole will always be greater than the sum of the parts, we weave these skills together in different ways to respond to new opportunities and challenges.

Preferably you can also say yes to

  • AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate
  • AWS Certified Developer – Associate

We offer you

The opportunity to work in a diverse and international environment with an informal culture, with a flat hierarchy, in which we cooperate across business areas and levels. You will be working with some of the most talented and experienced consultants, and you will become part of a value-driven company.

We care about results, not methodologies. But first and foremost, we care about people and how we can constantly challenge each other to become better. To do better. Your background is less important to us than your ability to create results, to create change. We prize excellence and ingenuity but know that both have to be grounded in reality. The reality of making our clients ready for the future.


We will be reviewing applications and conducting interviews on an on-going basis, so please send us your application as soon as possible.
