If you relish the challenge of an organisation that is growing and constantly adapting and evolving, then read on…

We are looking for someone who thrives in a fast paced, growing and sometimes ambiguous environment where it’s not just about getting things done – it’s also about “how” you get things done and help others to do the same.

You will be an experienced SQL DBA (ideally with ASP.NET, C# and javascript – desirable not essential), looking to make their mark at Hardware Group.  You will be working on an established technology stack that is vital to the running of our business and our customers as well as developing new projects.  You will be responsible for the smooth running of the MS SQL deployment (including reporting and integration services), provision and integration of systems with 3rd parties.

  • You pay attention to detail. As far as you are concerned, anything worth doing is worth doing right, every single time
  • You think on your feet. You like learining new things, and you can learn quickly.  When things change you know how to roll with the punches
  • You are motivated and driven and you’re going to take ownership of the time you spend with us and truly make a difference
