Systems Administrator – Gull New Zealand Ltd

From a single service station eighteen years ago, Gull has grown to be a formidable player in the New Zealand fuel sector. Gull has built a market position as a leader on value and a reputation for being at the forefront of technology, being the first fuel retailer to really embrace and grow the unmanned service station model.

Our rapid and continuing growth has given rise to this position. Behind our retail and commercial operations is a backbone of infrastructure that is key to enabling our business to operate and grow effectively and reliably.

In this fulltime position, reporting to the IT Manager, you will be using your outstanding communication skills and keen team-player attitude to work with our support office team, helping them with any and all IT-related queries and challenges. You will also pick up responsibility for Gull’s in-house servers and systems and be ready to help look for ways to further streamline the way we do things.

Along with experience providing support to end-users, you will be familiar with Windows server environments (both physical and virtual), plus have a working understanding of accounting packages. Third-tier support will be available to you via third-party contractors so you don’t need to know all the answers, just how to get them.

At Gull, we have a very lean and nimble team, which can only be achieved by being cooperative, flexible, supportive of each other, and ready to have fun.

Based in Takapuna, the position will be largely be office-based. Due to the 24/7 nature of fuel retailing some after-hours reactive work may be required.
