Job Description

Head of IT / IT Manager - central London - £80,000
Fantastic opportunity for a driven and ambitious senior IT Manager to join a successful and fast growing financial services business, with offices in London, Germany, Singapore and the US.

The IT function has historically been outsourced and sue to sustained growth and successes, the business are now looking to begin the process of bringing the IT function in-house.

In the initial months, the MSP provision will remain whilst you work to set up the processes and procedures, policies, assess the internal IT infrastructure and undertake projects to look at cyber security, data management, governance and improvements to infrastructure set up where needed. There will also be a project to set up a new office in the US.

Although working at a strategic level within the business, the role will also be hands on and day to day you can expect to be pulled into a variety of tasks, supporting the users, networks, servers and systems.

Technologies in their infrastructure currently consist of:
Windows 7 and 10
Windows Server 2012
Exchange Server
SQL Server and 1 Oracle server (manager by 3rd party)
Sophos Firewalls
Cisco Switches

This is an entrepreneurial business in their 5th year, who have achieved much growth and have ambitious plans to continue doing so. This role would likely suit a similar individual, used to working as part of, or leading a small team, or perhaps even working stand alone, who has an appreciation of the breadth of the role and what is needed to bring an IT function in-house. Solid experience with servers, networking and cyber security are needed. Experience from within professional services organisations would also be beneficial, but not essential, as would experience building a team previously.

The salary on offer for this role is circa £80,000, with options to buy equity after a proven period. The offices are in the heart of central London. To register your interest for the role, please send a copy of your CV with the reference number ASH17384RT.
