IT Consultant at the Arctic Council Secretariat, Tromsø, Norway

Publicerad 2018-06-11

The Arctic Council Secretariat (ACS) serves and supports the work of the Arctic Council and in particular, the Chairmanship of the Arctic Council. The ACS has 12 employees and is located at the Fram Centre in Tromsø, Norway.

The Arctic Council Secretariat has a full-time position available for a recent graduate in computer science, IT, information systems management, or a related field who is eager to develop his or her skills and experience by taking on diverse operational tasks in an international environment.


As our new IT consultant, you will ensure that the ACS is operational and equipped to handle the broad range of tasks for which we are responsible. You will keep track of our technical equipment, software, licenses, and relevant agreements, and you will ensure that our security systems are up to speed. Work related to SharePoint and SuperOffice CRM will be important; support and consultation for our staff members will be other key tasks. We will look to you to improve our work processes by exploring and implementing new technologies and solutions.

The Arctic Council has a service agreement with a larger IT company in Tromsø, and you will have the opportunity to consult with them on various issues. You will have the opportunity to travel and participate in international meetings, but will not be required to do so. As we are a small team, you may also be called upon to assist with other tasks as needed that fall into the suite of tasks for which the ACS is responsible.

Ideal qualifications for this position include:

• A completed bachelor's or master’s degree in an IT-related subject
• Experience with SharePoint
• Experience with cloud-based solutions
• Experience with Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 365
• Strong organizational skills and ability to multi-task
• A solutions-oriented mindset and a flexible, service-minded disposition
• Good English capabilities, both oral and written
• Eagerness to work in an international and multilingual environment


In accordance with the ACS staff rules, article 5.2, applicants for this position must be a citizen of one of the eight Arctic States (Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and the United States). This is an absolute and non-negotiable requirement.


The position is initially a four-year contract. At the end of the four-year contract, there is the possibility of a permanent contract. The annual salary will be in accordance with the salary levels in the staff rules of the Arctic Council Secretariat, Schedule B, level 1 or 2 (NOK 465 852 – 589 154).

Membership in the Norwegian social security scheme as well as a private pension scheme will be provided. We offer flexible working hours with core working hours between 09.00 and 15.00. The ACS offers free mobile phone and home broadband, office subscriptions to newspapers, and an optional one-hour weekly workout during work hours. We encourage our employees to take relevant courses and training to foster professional development.

There is a six-month trial period for this position.
