Job description


Infrastructure Engineer - Identity & Access (4059)

The primary focus of the role is to provide identity and access management (IDAM) technical skills and guidance - supporting an enterprise system with over 40,000 students and 4000 staff.  The role requires you to be an established IT professional with an understanding and interest in directory technologies, federated authentication services and enterprise level IT identity lifecycle management. This role offers an opportunity to develop and focus your career within the IDAM space – with a defined career pathway and mandatory training delivery.  You will be working alongside other focussed IDAM professionals within the team to learn, and drive positive change in these key systems. 


You will be working within an IDAM focussed team of 3 within Core Infrastructure, with support also provided by a close partner relationship.  The team along with others makes up the Infrastructure & Operations Department, consisting of approximately 40 staff members.  You will be working closely with colleagues across all of ISDS, but specifically with teams such as Collaboration, Cyber Security Operations, Networks, Servers, Database & Web, End User Compute and Information Security.  


Over the last 2 years Man Met has fully embraced the opportunities provided by conditional security controls – and the IDAM team lie at the heart of developing this function yet further, whilst updating and rationalising our on-premise environment to keep pace with our rapidly evolving suite of services. 


This role offers an excellent opportunity to develop your skills in a forward-thinking higher education IT department where your opinion is valued and acted upon. You will work as part of a high performing team in a large organisation, developing your skills in IDAM services.  Along the way you will be a key part of exciting projects, technical changes and sector leading initiatives.  The role profile also includes assisting in the day-to-day maintenance and running of the focus area, including managing and owning third line support issues to resolution and participating in investigation and troubleshooting activities where required.
