Job Description

IT Manager & System Administrator - Advertising Studio

£30,000- £35,000 - Central London

We are looking for someone with a background in IT Support to join a London based Creative Agency and take charge of their IT systems, along with providing IT support for the user base.

The role will involve running all aspects of IT for a company of around 50 people, which means it will be a varied role encompassing IT support, systems administration, project work, and the continual improvement of systems and processes.

This is a great opportunity to join an industry-leading company, and play a key role in the delivery of a first class IT function.

The core focus of this position will be to ensure the IT systems run smoothly and securely and to provide support for any technical problems. This will mean taking ownership of the infrastructure, maintaining it on a day to day basis while looking to improve it in the long term.

You will also take responsibility for IT security, and be expected to manage relationships with third-party suppliers. You will be working in an environment alongside software developers and will have the opportunity to get involved in systems administration and devops projects.

To be considered for this role you must have a proven track record of experience in an IT Support / Systems Administration role, but more importantly, we are looking for someone who has run the IT function for a small business.

You will need a broad technical knowledge, but also will be confident in your abilities, and able to operate effectively in a standalone position. We will be looking for evidence of the following;
