Our platform base includes 350 PCs and 25 servers (Novell and NT) from Whangarei to Invercargill, email, intranet, VPN. We have 450 users using Melbourne-based RS 6000 and AS/400 systems for major applications. My qualifications include CNA, CCNA, A+ and I am learning MCSE. I am responsible for all hardware and software support through outsourcing partners, plus all strategic and business direction projects for New Zealand in consultation with Melbourne head office.

My major recent projects include the integration of the Auckland head office, with offices in Wellington and Christchurch, following the purchase of another equal-size company.
Candle IT & T Recruitment replies: Without knowing the staff management dimensions of your role, it is difficult to be too exact. We suggest that if yours is a sole-charge role and therefore very hands-on, you would be worth $65,000 to $85,000. However, if you are in a management role with direct reports carrying out most of the hands-on work, this could stretch to $85,000 to $105,000 depending on the number of staff you have reporting to you.
