A highly successful organisation with over 40 years of experience and operations throughout Europe, USA and Asia is looking to recruit a talented Linux Systems Administrator to be based in the Cardiff area, South Wales (commutable from parts of Gloucestershire, Somerset and Avon).

The successful candidate will be part of the infrastructure team responsible for the strategic planning, maintenance and audit of all global IT infrastructure services - multiple data centres and approximately 500 virtual machines. The role will involve designing, delivering and controlling complex IT global infrastructure solutions, co-ordinating operation strategies as well as leading on infrastructure projects.

In order to be suitable for this role you must have worked in an IT Systems Administrator, Senior Systems Engineer, Linux Systems Administrator, Unix Systems Administrator or similar role. It is essential to have proven Linux systems administration experience (ideally RedHat), thorough technical knowledge of administering virtualised environments (VMware) as well as detailed technical knowledge of the LAMP stack or the ability to resolve web application (JBoss, Coldfusion, Apache) issues on Linux systems. The ideal candidate will also be VCP / RHCE certified and have some exposure to Solaris, Coldfusion or Amazon Web Services (AWS), however this is not essential.

This is an excellent opportunity to not only gain experience within a large global infrastructure, but also join a changing business that provide a flexible environment with plenty of progression and training opportunities. My client is paying a maximum basic salary of £33,000 plus benefits including pension, flexible benefits, flexi-time and 25 days annual leave.

If you would like to apply for this Linux Systems Administrator role please email a Word copy of your CV quoting reference ASH12305JGH in your subject line.
