We have an exciting new full-time opportunity for a Senior Systems Administrator to join the department. Reporting to the Deputy IT Manager for Infrastructure, this role is pivotal to the smooth-running of the IT operations.
You will be expected to organise your own time appropriately to effectively provide day-to-day support, as well as progress longer-term projects to meet deadlines, and maintain agreed service levels. You should understand departmental IT strategies and policies, and will be expected to proactively contribute to the creation and evolution of them.
You will have a degree in Computer Science and/or relevant experience, a good understanding of TCP/IP networks, proven expertise in enterprise Linux systems administration, virtual infrastructure administration and enterprise grade storage and backup systems administration (ideally in a large-network environment), demonstrable troubleshooting skills, a proven record of project delivery as technical lead, and excellent communications and organisational skills.
Whilst the role is a grade 8 position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at grade 7 (£33,309 – £40,927 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
Applicants will be required to upload a supporting statement, setting out how you meet the selection criteria.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Tuesday, 7th of June 2022. Interviews are expected to be held in June.
