A reputable global brand is looking for a talented IT Systems Administrator with Linux skills to join an established dedicated infrastructure team based from impressive offices in the Paddington area, Central London. This will initially be a fixed term contract for 12 months, with good possibility of extension or becoming permanent for the right candidate.
Reporting into the Senior Systems Engineer, the successful candidate will be part of a team responsible for supporting and developing all elements of the UK IT infrastructure.
In order to be suitable for this requirement you must have proven experience working in an IT Systems Administrator, Windows Systems Administrator, Linux Systems Administrator, Infrastructure Engineer or similar infrastructure / 3rd line focussed role, ideally for a medium to large sized user base in a fast moving industry. It is essential to have broad technical experience including Linux (ideally Redhat), Active Directory and hypervisors (HyperV, VMware, Citrix, OpenStack, etc) systems administration skills as well as backup, storage and network solutions (switches, firewalls, routers, DNS, DHCP, proxies, etc). The ideal candidate will also be an IT Graduate with a relevant industry certification (CCNA, MCSA/MCSE, RHCA/RHCSA/RHCE or equivalent), but this is not essential.
This is also an opportunity for a tech savvy candidate to join a challenging and ever evolving global company where improvements to processes, systems and working practices are continually strived for, and the role is crucial to the company’s success. This role is paying up to £40,000 pro rata plus benefits including discretionary bonus, pension, season ticket loan and 25 days annual leave.
