Date: 29-Jun-2022

Location: Oxford/ Hybrid, GB

Company: Nominet

NEVER HEARD OF NOMINET? 

Our name may not be familiar, but you probably use our services every single day – ever visited a website ending in a .uk?

We’ve been running the national internet namespace for a quarter of a century, sitting proudly at the heart of the UK's critical digital infrastructure.  

Such a responsibility requires world-leading cyber security and we’re gaining a reputation for our innovative new security solutions, protecting our own systems and beyond. 

But we’re also a Public Benefit business. We invest in making a positive impact of the lives that are being most disrupted in our digital age: young people. We’re known as one of the UK’s leading ‘tech for good’ funders and the commitment to building a connected, secure and inclusive digital future drives everything we do. It’s not just rhetoric – ask our staff. 
  

THE BEST BITS 

At Nominet you can expect a competitive salary (depending on experience of course), plus excellent benefits including 30 days holidays, Healthcare, Pension Scheme, Life Assurance, Wellbeing allowance, Remote Working,  Flex benefits and much much more.

 

ABOUT THE ROLE

 

Our registry and DNS platforms are used by our customers throughout the world to operate .UK and other top level domains. These are critical systems, subject to high service level agreements and we are accredited to the ISO 20000 international standard for IT service management. 
 
As IT Service Manager you will deliver, develop, and improve our IT service process management. You will take on the day-to-day management of our ISO 20000 accredited IT Service Management System, including configuration management, change management and problem management. 
 
A key responsibility will be for our configuration management system. You will have the opportunity to lead a project from identifying our requirements for asset management, reviewing available tools against our requirements to then recommending a solution and implementing the new CMDB. You will also provide life cycle management for assets including hardware, software, licences and warranties and ensure that international standards for asset management are complied with. 
In addition, you will manage ongoing ISO 20000 activity in other areas and will work to identify opportunities to improve processes. 
  

ABOUT YOU AND WHAT YOU NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL:    


We are looking for someone to coordinate the work that goes into meeting ISO 20000 standard, but who will also look for continuous improvement actions. Substantial experience of delivering ISO 20000 ITSM or ITIL standards is a must have in this role.

You will have a collaborative approach to engage with teams and senior managers across the wider business to coordinate our response to the requirements of the standards. 

You will be able to demonstrate that you’ve delivered process improvements in previous roles, embedding a culture of continuous improvement.
