Job Description

An organisation experiencing significant growth, is now looking for a capable and autonomous IT professional to manage their IT operations. Up to now, technology has been managed by external providers, but the company has decided to bring their technology function in-house, hence this new role coming to market.

This newly-created position is an independent role and will oversee all IT functions, from user support through to managing their database and software packages. You will be able to leverage the capability of the external technology partner and will give guidance and direction to this provider.

Key Responsibilities

• Stakeholder relationship-building and management skills, to include superior communication skills;
• Contribute and champion IT policy and procedures, and best practice guides for the organisation;
• Manage all IT services including telecommunications, applications and infrastructure through improvement and where necessary replacement;
• Maintain, conduct, and test monthly maintenance and disaster recovery plans;
• Project management of various initiatives;
• Experience with SQL, MS Office and Exchange;
• Desire to learn new database system.

Key to being successful in this position, will be to assist other, non-technical stakeholders in exploring, supporting and understanding information technology as it relates to the strategic and operational requirements of the company.

You will have the desire to own this technology environment and recommend new and innovative adoptions, ensuring well-thought out business cases support any such recommendations.
