After recent years of very successful and structured growth, this modern and progressive organisation are seeking to enhance the IT Infrastructure Support Team by recruiting a challenge motivated IT Systems Administrator with IT Projects experience.

  • Maintenance of Desktops, Laptops, Network Appliances, Printers & Scanners
  • Microsoft Exchange Server and MS Office 365
  • Microsoft Windows 7 and 10
  • Proven track record of delivering IT Projects on time and budget.

Your "Day to Day" responsibilities will involve:

  • Handle escalated calls from 1st & 2nd Line Service Desk Engineers
  • Administer and maintain Active Directory, LAN, Internet, Firewalls & Exchange/Office 365
  • Administer VMware or HyperV virtualised infrastructure including SAN technology
  • Monitor and troubleshoot server and network performance utilising the monitoring system to ensure any necessary action is taken

  • Management of relationships with third parties and suppliers
  • Administer telephony system
  • Keep operational documentation up-to-date
  • Out-of-hours working is occasionally required

Technology accreditations such as MCSA, MCSE and VCP are desirable but will not take precedence over solid and proven IT Infrastructure and IT Systems Administration experience.
