About our Client:
Fruition is delighted to be exclusively partnering with Geelong’s premier IT managed services provider. Forward thinking, cloud ready, and leading with strategy to help their clients drive their business goals and create a roadmap for positive change, our client supports a range of businesses from micro and small operations through to national brands. Established for over 15 years, by not only taking care of their clients day-to-day IT needs but also their long term business performance objectives, our client provides operational efficiency peace of mind, and as a result of increasing demand for their services, an exciting full time opportunity now exists for an experienced IT Systems Administrator to join the team.

About the Opportunity:
A high visibility role within this progressive organisation, you’ll maintain the design and integrity of client software systems and server infrastructure with performance, enhancement and security. Providing technical support relating to issues involving Microsoft’s core business applications and operating systems, at the network level (WAN and LAN connectivity, routers, firewalls, security) and in performing programmed testing and reporting of business continuity solutions, you’ll ensure clients’ data is protected, backed-up regularly, recoverable and securely stored for disaster recovery purposes. Together with the Professional Services team, you’ll assist in implementing a catalogue of business projects and will actively strive for continuous improvement, seeking out ways to enhance, streamline and secure clients’ infrastructure and systems. Also acting as the escalation point for the internal Service Desk team, you’ll ensure service availability levels are maintained on critical systems and be required to maintain documentation and asset management. Communicating systems downtime and planned changed to clients is an important aspect of the role, as is helping users understand systems when required.

About You:
Accustomed to working in a fast paced and rapidly evolving environment, you’ll have a positive attitude and an ability to build strong relationships quickly and with ease. With significant experience in a similar role and a proven track record delivering outstanding customer service, you’ll have a good understanding of core networking principles, experience with networks, load balancer, firewall and cloud security and experience working with M365 and Azure technologies. You’ll be experienced in testing application functionality, ensuring application performance and performing application change management functions. Well informed on technology trends, best practices and options, you’ll be self motivated and complemented by excellent written and verbal communication skills. Reliable and able to remain calm under pressure, you’re also able to manage high workloads with excellent attention to detail and can effectively manage competing priorities accordingly. With strong analytical and problem solving abilities, you can work to tight deadlines, and while you’ll ideally have a current Microsoft accreditation, tertiary qualifications in Information Systems or similar are desirable but not essential.

About the Perks:
Our client fosters a culture focused on innovation, fun and high performance where individual and team efforts are recognised. With a history of generously rewarding their people, on offer is a competitive base remuneration, plus a phone allowance, car allowance and laptop. You’ll also benefit from challenging career pathways working on interesting projects that make a difference, continuous professional development, and the opportunity to learn from a diverse team of talented individuals. In addition, you’ll receive genuine work/ life flexibility (including location flexibility and the option to work up to 4 days per week from home), fresh fruit, monthly corporate massages, pizza/ casual Fridays, quarterly team dinners, annual flu vaccinations and more!
