Job Description

Head of IT

Small Investment Management firm is looking to hire someone to provide technical support and to manage their IT landscape.
  • Sydney CBD Penthouse offices!
  • Permanent Position in a rapidly growing firm
  • $120,000 to $130,000 
As a result of unparalleled continued growth in Australia and a number of new acquisitions, they are looking for an ambitious, smart and agile person to manage their technology environment.

As a company of around 100 due to double over the next year, the Technology Manager will be an all-encompassing role and will involve both hands-on support and strategic components
The Role:
  • Providing support, wherever possible, to business users pertaining to all aspects of technology – networks, AV, infrastructure, email and systems
  • Providing a strategic review of the current outsourced IT support agreement
  • Manage any third party agreements and the vendors themselves
  • Take a leading role (along with business SMEs) in the implementation of a new IT set up
  • Set up and implement new IT strategy, This will be up to you to understand the landscape
  • Migration of O365 and other 3rd party applications into one single source for the business. 
  • Multiple different technologies need to be consolidated 
  • Stakeholder education around best practice for their systems
  • Develop a technology governance and compliance framework, as well as looking into other areas of corporate IT including document management and data
  • Any other duties that are deemed “technology-driven” issues or initiatives
Your experience:
Your experience will include most of the above, or someone that has come to close but is maybe performing a 2ic position currently and is looking for more ownership.
You will be interpersonal and will be very business focussed. You may find yourself in business meetings as the technology representative for the business, talking about how technology can help and drive investments!

You’ll be someone who will probably come from a similar environment – a small entrepreneurial type environment within Financial services, investment management, commercial property or find management or capital markets – where you remain technically hands on but also have a say in strategy. 

This may not suit guys who have managed teams who cannot (or do not want to!) help guys figure out why their email isn’t working or why their excel reports cannot reconcile! 
Above all, you’ll enjoy being surrounded by very high performing individuals and will be driven to forward your own career.
