It's a nice idea, based on a false assumption, I'm afraid.

Our finances are balanced. That means we have roughly the same aount coming in
as we have going out - except for some savings that we've made over the last
year by not having any full-time employee (these are one-off savings, as soon as
we hire someone we'll be balanced again, but with a slightly bigger bank account

So I don't think we have the money to hire a part-time sysadmin, and I think
we'd have difficulty finding one (to work part-time). It's certainly something
worth thinking about, but the answer will likely be "we can't (yet) afford it".
