Hi

 

I work for an IT consultancy company in NZ and we are looking for an IT Administrator.  Here is a brief of the expectations.  If you are interested in the position, PM me for the full details.  The job will be going on Seek tomorrow, but here is an advanced listing for fellow Geekzoners.

 

 

About the role

 

In this position you’ll need to take ownership and fix technical problems: we operate in a Windows environment and responsibility will fall to you to pro-actively maintain this. You’ll provision laptops and also assist our pre-sales team with Customer Demo kits. We deploy AWS Cloud technology, for us and some of our Customers, and we’ll need your help with the administration of this – we can provide training in this, as well as some of our internal SAP systems so you’ll be able to support them as well. In return, we’ll be looking for a quick learner – someone who is obviously passionate about technology and enjoys being in a position to assist others through ensuring systems are “available” and preventative maintenance is in check.

 

Our ideal person

 

First of all, you must be legally entitled to work in NZ – for this position, we cannot offer visa sponsorship.

 

Other than that, though, there are two types of experience that would really suit us.

 

     

  1. We really need someone who has 1-2 years’ experience providing desktop and server support and who is looking to commit to this role for 2 years. After this, we can help you develop your career in other parts of our business – because we specialise in SAP, a career in SAP software or infrastructure can be considered. Our current IT Administrator is doing just that - and this is why we need to replace him. Unfortunately, we cannot consider recent graduates unless you have the required work experience - this is because we need someone who has already faced similar situations and technical challenges so you know what to do.
  2. Alternatively, you could have many years’ IT Support experience under your belt and are simply looking for a great job with a great company and can see yourself doing this role for years and years to come. Not everyone wants to progress their career up the IT ladder – some of you just want to work with wonderful people, be appreciated for what you do and put in a good day’s effort, every day. If this sounds like you, then we’re looking forward to your application.

Very good point.  Preferably Auckland but they would consider Wellington.

'looking to commit to this role for 2 years'

 

Recruiters should drop this useless line, every person sees this, parrot phrases it back in the interview and then leaves after 10 months.

 

Especially in this economy. My partner gets about 1-4% pay rise every year because he's not willing to change jobs, I have had 4 roles in 2.5 years and have gone up 28k in that time.

 

Be realistic, "we are looking for someone who is willing to work hard for as long as they are happy working with us" 

 

 

 

This is not a dig at you, your not the HR person who wrote it but this stuff needs to die.

Honestly I don't know!  Thanks for the PM, I've sent the details to you.

 

For anyone else who may be interested, I'll check with personnel and update the thread.

 

Thanks

this goes both ways.  Some employers wouldn't hire you because of this.  Its all good in a sellers market...
