Full Time

I've been tasked with finding someone with strong networking skills that can work in a fast paced environment, and can deal with an ever changing IT landscape. No two days are the same and you will never be sat still. You will need to be able to multi-task and be able to prioritise throughout the day. The role will require client contact as well as dealing with internal customers/team members.

You could be fixing a server or Azure Active Directory issue one minute and then have to drop everything to deal with a client issue. This role will test your technical and organisational/Project Management skills. You'll need to be able to think on your feet and not get frustrated if you don't get to finish a task. Strong communication skills go without saying and a professional approach to everything you do

There will be server refresh projects every year or two. In summary you need to keep the IT infrastructure of this software company ticking and always be thinking of ways to improve it!

This role isn't for someone looking for an easy ride, it will be demanding but also very rewarding. You will join the company as an Engineer and there will be plenty of opportunity for progression after approx 12 months. The company already has a path in place for you!

Key skills are:

Active Directory, Azure, Powershell or similar scripting language; batch script or cscript etc

Office 365 administration and configuration

Network management, Local DNS, DHCP, Networking (cabling), TCP/IP, Public DNS management, VPN configuration and support

Switches/routers network hardware configuration

IT Qualifications are desirable but not essential

If you have the technical skills and the appetite for a challenge, I look forward to receiving your CV
