Are you our next ICT expert? If you are, we would love to hear from you!

The Opportunity

Maitland City Council has an exciting new opportunity available! We are currently looking for an experienced Network Administrator who will be responsible for implementing and maintaining reliable and secure ICT network and communications infrastructure for Maitland City Council. As the successful candidate you will be responsible for providing high level user support to ensure Council’s ICT users have access to information and systems. You will provide an efficient and effective service to the organisation when liaising with management and staff on security system issues.

You will also perform the following tasks:

  • Research, design, implement, monitor and support an expandable storage management solution.
  • Implement and proactively monitor systems that mitigate possible security threats to Council’s ICT network & data, manage risks associated with virus attack & intrusion detection, and provide identity & access control and physical network & device security.
  • Research, develop, implement and test the disaster recovery plan to mitigate risk against ICT environment failure.

What we are looking for

Our ideal candidate will possess industry experience in Network Administration, and bring a highly technical skillset to the Maitland City Council team.

Your technical and diagnostic skills will make you adaptable to even the most challenging tasks, and will aid you in delivering projects on time and within budget. For this opportunity a Degree level qualification in Information Technology would complement your technical skillset, but is not essential.
