We’re looking for an ICT Officer to join our busy Operations team, which is tasked with monitoring and managing the Council’s ICT network. As part of a team, you’ll play an important role in supporting and maintaining the current network environment, and also developing the use of new technologies to support the Council’s drive to a ‘digital by default’ model wherever possible.
In this role, you’ll help to manage support calls covering a wide range of disciplines, provide clear advice and support to customers from a non-technical background and carry out daily maintenance tasks as required. You will assist in the configuration, monitoring, management and development of the various technologies employed by the Operations team, including web and mail secure gateway solutions, network switches, iSCSI storage and our virtualised server estate. You will also assist with IT Projects when required and liaise with external agencies where appropriate to progress technical issues.
You will be experienced in Microsoft Windows Server operating systems, Active Directory, VMWare vSphere and TCP/IP communications. Ideally, you will also have experience of secure gateway solutions for web and mail traffic (such as Clearswift and Forcepoint) and Cisco switching and routing.
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 www.spfo.org.uk.
