IT Manager – Azure

April 17, 2024
£50000 - £50000

Job Description

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


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.
