IT Manager – Azure

IT Manager – Azure

Glasgow | £50,000 - £60,000 | Permanent

Published: 25.03.24 Ref: BBBH46538_1711377164

I am working with a growing software product company in Glasgow and Edinburgh who are looking to recruit an experienced Azure focused IT Manager to the team.

The company:

The company are 30 years old and have recently grown to around 150 staff, with steady growth across the business. They operate within the Financial Services sector and create a specific type of platform and product. Their software helps to automate a process and saves the client valuable time - as well as cutting operating costs in half.

The company are based in central Glasgow and Edinburgh and are continuing to grow their tech team. They have an experienced and healthy software development team inhouse, and you will work closely alongside them as well as the IT Support team. This role is a hybrid position and they are looking for someone to be in the Glasgow or Edinburgh office twice a week. The role also comes with good benefits including strong holidays (34), a discretionary bonus and private health care.

The role:

This is an IT Manager position, however it is still very hands-on. It is a new position within the business, having formed a new support function 12 months ago to assist with the growth of the organisation. You will be looking after two IT Support Engineers, with the managerial element of the role fairly minimal. You will be expected to be someone who wants to remain very hands-on with lead responsibilities. This role is definitely not a pure Manager of facilitator role, much more of a 'do-er'.

The environment is Microsoft and Azure driven, and they are very much looking for an Azure hands-on expert. They are looking for someone to be able to troubleshoot complex technical issues across Windows Hybrid Domain, Microsoft 365 and end-user computing. You will work across departments and differing stakeholders to align business needs and objectives. Although people management is not a huge part of this role, having some form of leadership experience is desired.

Your background:

** Having mentored or managed a small technical team

** Very strong hands-on Azure experience - Azure:- Active Directory, Virtual Machines, Firewall, Networking, Site Recovery, Sentinel

** Windows Active Directory & Windows Server

** Powershell or Bash scripting

** ITIL

** Linux, Terraform/Ansible, MS SQL Server (all desirable)

** Having worked at a Software company would be useful (ideally SaaS)

** Financial services knowledge (bonus)

This is an opportunity to work with a thriving and employee-first organisation. You will get to work on some largescale projects and with some huge organisations, whilst leading and working alongside some very bright individuals.

Candidates

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.
