Launch your new career in IT

Network Specialist

To become a Network Specialist, you need the right education. But employers don’t necessarily look for Degree-level qualifications anymore. Most employers prefer a technical certification as it’s direct proof of your knowledge and suitability to do the job you’re applying for.

Career specific training here is key. Yes, employers will expect to see your knowledge of LANs, WANs and other networking systems alongside your expertise with routers and switches. They’ll also look for personal attributes too - if you have the ability to analyse and problem solve, have good communication skills and can describe technical terms in non-technical ways, you’ll stand in good stead.

What Does It Mean to Be a Network Specialist?

As a Network Specialist, you’re the main port of call when it comes to the integrity and security of a company’s network and the systems connected to it. Your knowledge of network connectivity, network security devices, network types and common OSs will be second-to-none.

Your role will see you responsible for troubleshooting, diagnosing and actioning repairs and identifying ways of streamlining processes. As your career progresses, you could see yourself responsible for monitoring security threats and network access. 

That’s the benefit of a career as a Network Specialist – you’re indulging your passion for tech with a clearly defined career. Your earning potential is incredible - we’re talking an average starting salary being £20k, with advanced roles anywhere up to £46k.
 

How Do I Qualify as a Network Specialist?

There’s no simple fix for becoming a Network Specialist – you’ll need to put in the work to build up your knowledge. There’s no point spending time and money getting a certificate that’s of no benefit to your career. You’ll need to get a professional certification that’s geared towards your career path – think of qualifications for specific vendors that will boost your career like Microsoft, CompTIA and Cisco.
