With a reputation for engaging staff and students in partnership to deliver services, for three years running UK students have voted us best for IT support. We are committed to delivering and supporting excellent customer focussed services and to do this we need to recruit the best staff, invested in higher education and dedicated to supporting sector leading learning, teaching and research – and that’s why we need you…

We have an exciting opportunity in our department for someone with a passion for Linux looking to use their skills in Linux desktop administration and packaging to make an impact on the delivery of Linux and Unix desktop services.

This role sits within the Desktop Team within Infrastructure Operations, which is a small, close-knit team responsible for providing a wide range of desktop services both within the department and to the wider University. You will have the opportunity to work in a varied and diverse environment working on a mixture of development and operational tasks including that of using various provisioning, monitoring and configuration tools to manage the environment. This will give you the chance to investigate new technologies and be involved in project-based activities alongside the other general duties of the Desktop Team. Additionally there is the opportunity to learn about the complete range of desktop services from windows through to Mac clients.

You should have the experience of, or the ability to, work in a large and varied computing infrastructure with knowledge of relevant systems, policies, legislation, and quality standards pertaining to the deployment of Client Devices.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK.
