We’re looking for an ICT Officer to join our ICT team, supporting the Council’s database and integration environments.


As part of East Renfrewshire Council’s ongoing drive to channel shift to a “digital by default” model wherever possible, we are committed to continuing the expansion of convenient, 24/7 access to our services for both internal and external customers. As part of our team, you’ll play an important role in both developing new systems and supporting and enhancing existing ones as we continue this expansion.


In this role you will be able to demonstrate experience of Microsoft SQL Server 2008, 2012 and 2014 and be able to understand and troubleshoot ETL (extract, transform and load) tasks using SQL Server Integration Services.


You will assist in management of database configuration, including installing and upgrading software and maintaining relevant documentation.  You will monitor database activity and resource usage and optimise database performance and assist in forecasting resource needs.


You will maintain integration services to meet business demands.


You will review system software updates and identify those that merit action.  You will tailor system software to maximise hardware functionality.


You will initiate and monitor actions to investigate and resolve problems in systems, processes and services, and determine problem fixes/remedies.


You will draft and maintain procedures and documentation for databases, and contribute to the setting of standards for definition, security and integrity of database objects and ensure conformance to these standards.


You will be an excellent communicator and team player with the interpersonal attributes to develop good working relationships with a range of ICT colleagues, internal customers and external suppliers.

Employees with a contract of employment for 3 months or more are automatically included in our Local Government Pension Scheme which is a career average scheme.  Pension contribution rates are based on a tiered system determined by your annual full time equivalent pensionable pay.  For example for those earning up to and including £21,800 the contribution rate you pay is 5.5% of your salary. The council pays the rest of the cost of providing your benefits. This amount varies but it's always enough to make sure your pension can be paid and will be at least 19.3% of your pay.  In addition you get tax relief on your contributions - the tax you pay on your salary is calculated after your pension contributions are deducted. 


Other main pension benefits include a pension that increases each year in line with price inflation and the ability to exchange some of your pension to provide a tax free lump sum.  Further details can be found in the attached document General Information for Applicants or via the Strathclyde Pension Fund website
