IT Officer, Cairns
Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is a unique Christian not-for profit organisation using aviation and technology to bring help and hope to some of the world’s most isolated communities. We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced IT officer to join the team at our Cairns Support Office and use their skills to make a life-changing impact in the communities we serve.
As a global organisation, sometimes working in very remote locations, our IT infrastructure is core to our ability to function safely and effectively. The IT Officer will be part of a global team responsible for maintaining and supporting IT services not only at the office in Cairns but for many locations across international borders.
This exciting role is varied and could involve working in a variety of different IT disciplines including end user support, networks, servers, telephony, business applications and projects. The IT Officer interacts with all departments and teams, including remote flight operations and Christian outreach teams.
The successful candidate would be expected to have good experience in at least four of the following areas:
• Supporting Windows environments, including MS Office
• Hardware support (laptops, desktops, servers, etc)
• Understanding of file servers, virtual servers and active directory
• Understanding of computer networks, such as
o IP protocols, TCP/IP, DHCP Configuration
o Configuring routers, firewalls, WANS and VPNS.
• Good level of customer service and care
• Understanding of incident management and ITIL methodologies
• Formal IT qualifications (such as Microsoft MSCE)
The successful candidate should be self-motivated, passionate, friendly and an excellent communicator with a ‘can-do’ attitude, taking a real interest in new technology and ways of working. They will need to be a person who holds themselves accountable and who is motivated to serve the Lord, taking ownership and making sure that tasks are performed accurately and efficiently.
Applicants must have the legal right to work in Australia and ideally should hold a relevant professional qualification and or experience. Acceptance and adherence to MAF International’s purpose, vision and values are an essential condition of employment.
This is a full time role based in our Cairns Support Office.
