We are looking for candidates with an appreciation of what a HR service does, the services it provides and the types of systems and technologies used.

You will have an understanding of how effective digital developments add value to an organisation and the importance of user centred design.

Understanding the importance of robust system administration procedures is key, as well as an understanding of the ICT service lifecycle, including change and release management.
