I am working with a company in the public sector to find a Platform Specialist to join their dynamic IT team. Your responsibilities will include system design, technical documentation, task automation, and leading medium to large-scale IT projects.

Your day to day will be varied but you will be:

  • Providing subject matter expertise in Office 365, emphasizing migration and support.
  • Supporting legacy Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange environments in a hybrid enterprise setup.
  • Leading the technical implementation of SharePoint & Power Platform solutions.
  • Automating routine tasks using PowerShell and Azure-based DevOps tools.
  • Delivering administrative support to service users across Office 365, SharePoint, MS Teams, and Power Applications.

To be successful in this position you will have:

  • In-depth expertise in Microsoft Office 365, Exchange Online, Azure AD, SharePoint, MS Teams, and Power Tools deployment.
  • Proficiency in advanced scripting (especially PowerShell) and automation.
  • Management and administration of enterprise-level Azure tenancy.
  • Strong project management skills, including experience with methodologies like Prince 2.
  • Excellent communication and organisational skills.
  • Familiarity with IT industry standards such as ITIL, ISO, and Prince 2.

My client is offering a competitive salary of up to £68,000 for this position, alongside an excellent benefits package. This includes access to a comprehensive health and wellbeing programme, as well as supported learning and development opportunities. And, while initially a 12-month fixed-term contract, there is potential for the role to transition into a permanent position for the right candidate. The role offers a hybrid working arrangement, with a base in my client's London office.
