This role will suit a motivated and career minded IT Systems Administrator seeking a springboard into the upper realms of the IT world encompassing the ISP, Telco, Broadband Media and Fibre Optical arena.

Your key areas of expertise and responsibilities include:

  • Solid IT operating systems (Windows), particularly Windows Server Domain controller

  • Maintain the software licence register to ensure compliance between licences owned and used.
  • Manage and control the firm's laptops
  • Manage the internal cabling infrastructure
  • Handle telephone enquiries in a professional and polite manner, taking accurate messages.
  • Prepare correspondence on behalf of the IT Director, including the drafting of general replies.
  • Deal with incoming/outgoing e-mails and post quickly and efficiently.
  • Working as part of a team with other members of the Department.
  • Any other ad hoc duties as and when required.

On this client-facing platform you will need a consultative DNA, a high-level of Service Ethic, and a "Customer is King" attitude.
