About the Job
The Senior Systems Administrator is a technical role within the IT Operations and Support Team.
You will become part of a highly skilled team in a very busy environment. The team is accountable for the successful delivery of high availability infrastructure services for internal and external customers with an availability SLA of 99.5%. Working with a wider team of around 15 IT specialists in the Infrastructure & Networks team you will work closely with the technical and leadership teams to make sure that delivery and support infrastructure solutions meet the customer needs and are in keeping with corporate infrastructure behaviours of the team and the wider organisation.

After the initial six months probationary period, this role may attract an "on-call" allowance where the candidate can apply to participate in the existing "on call" rota on a 1 week in 4 basis.
