The Opportunity
Are you an IT Assistant looking for an in-house role? What about one working at the forefront of science and technology?

Sound good? Read on€¦

The Role
As a subsidiary of a world-renowned University we work at the cutting edge of scientific and technological research. Our IT systems are crucial and so as our IT Assistant you'll be responsible for ensuring our hardware and software reflects this and we can provide support to researchers across the institution.

Working closely with the IT Manager you'll be the first point of contact for staff who require desk side support and those off-site who are based remotely using Citrix. Alongside resolving these 1st and 2nd line issues in your new IT Assistant position you'll be involved in larger IT projects, upgrades and reporting in to members of the senior management team.

Owing to the nature of our work the databases we use are considered business critical so a key priority for you will be ensuring these are maintained and run efficiently. Like the research we support we're constantly looking to improve so any ideas you can bring to the table to increase performance, efficiency or reliability across the IT provision we offer will be appreciated.

The Candidate
If you're an IT Assistant, 1st or 2nd Line Support Engineer looking for a challenging, innovative in-house role we'd love to hear from you.

Whether you're from an in-house or MSP background we're looking for a fairly standard set of skills. Experience of Windows Pro 7 and 10 is a must, as is McAfee, and you'll need to know your way around the latest SQL and MS servers. As mentioned we have staff based around the globe so to any IT Assistant coming in will have worked with VPN, wireless networks and remote working.

Our databases are key so a knowledge of Topaz, Inteum and Filemaker would be highly beneficial.

This IT Assistant position will involve a lot of colleague and Director level interaction so, to ensure you enjoy your time with us, you will need to be a people person who thrives in this kind of environment. As we are still a fairly small, very busy company everyone helps out wherever possible so if you don't like the idea of occasionally putting up a table or doing some filing this probably isn't going to be the job for you.

The Company
Whilst the work we do has global significance across multiple industries as an organisation we're fairly small, with around 70 users across 2 businesses. The IT Assistant sits within the Operations team which provides support across those streams and because of that we're a close-knit bunch.

Given the nature of what we do most of us have a wider interest in academia, science and technology so if you enjoy innovative conversations over your morning coffee you'll fit right in.

The Package
£21k - £25k basic salary (dependent upon experience)
Up to 10% PRP bonus
Pension
Continuous professional development and subscription opportunities
25 days holiday plus Christmas shut down and bank holidays
Season ticket loan
Child care vouchers
Healthcare scheme
