As the Systems Network Administrator you will be responsible for the installation and monitoring for one of Australia's leading defence industry companies' IT Hardware Systems.

This role will see you liaising with key stakeholders and contributing to the successful completion of programs and initiatives while having the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of defence projects.

This role isn't your typical Systems Network Administrator job, its much more than that.

My client is well known and respected around the world. Their products are key not only to defence, but all major industries.

They look to their employees to ensure that the best outcome can be achieved in a harmonious environment. A collaboration is needed to ensure this, with both staff and management working towards achieving the best results for both the stakeholder and the client.

Flexible working arrangements and support for interstate relocation is available to the right candidate.
