We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
An exciting opportunity within the dynamic and ever-evolving IT Service awaits the right candidate. This is a busy, high-volume but friendly environment that will suit an organised person with a great eye for detail and plenty of team spirit.
As we begin our maturity journey within asset and inventory control, the successful candidate will manage the ‘as is' process, whilst also leading the development, design, and implementation of a modern fit for purpose operating model that is compliant with recognised industry best practice and University policies. This is a unique opportunity to embed and develop a new and innovative approach within asset / inventory control within a specialist set of IT related product lines.
Reporting to the Supplier and Contracts Manager, you will be skilled in cross functional working within a range of different key stakeholder groups as well as having a wealth of experience in the management of multiple asset / inventory product lines in various disciplines to drive our maturity within this key operational area.
The successful candidate will be responsible for planning, implementing, and managing the IT hardware asset life cycle strategy, developing and delivering a high-quality asset / inventory management approach.
A passion for driving change, quality improvement, and efficiency identification will be critical to this role and will form a key component of how we measure success. Appreciation of the role and value of configuration management in an IT context would be an advantage, but, not essential.
The University is an exciting and dynamic place to work, dedicated to world-leading education and research. Benefits include excellent pension; flexible working options; a minimum of 37 days holiday (including public holidays); discounted travel for the Metro and local bus services; and discounts for national retailers. You can find out more on our benefits web page.
We are committed to building and maintaining a fair and inclusive working environment and we would be happy to discuss arrangements for flexible and/or blended working.
