What you will be doing

Our IT teams play a fundamental role in ensuring all of Colt's systems run smoothly and securely, using Unix to run all of our major applications from our 850+ data centres around the world.

Unix is pivotal to the functioning of Colt systems; from SAP to mail and billing, all major applications in Colt run on Unix. There are almost 2000 Unix servers - making it a critical role to Colt so you will spend time in our data centres developing your knowledge of our systems. All external, customer-facing systems in Colt also run on Unix so security is a huge priority for us.

Your role will involve monitoring Unix servers for faults, installing new servers for our growing number of projects, and maintaining exceptional standards of service.

Everyone, no matter their role, is encouraged to voice their ideas and question how things are being done.


Our people set us apart and we celebrate our differences and support everyone's individuals goals. Whatever your interests or aspirations, our global network is somewhere you can explore and develop. We pride ourselves on an open environment where you can define your career with the effort you put in and the skills you develop with us.

From graduates to apprentices, Colt's network of bright, connected minds is transforming the way that we work at a time of digital transformation as we rapidly evolve.
