You will be working within the support team and work closely with the directors providing 1st and 2nd line support and services.

You will be supporting a wide range of clients with differing setups, across all industries, SME sized (2 to 150 users). Most clients are local to Poole/Bournemouth and surrounding areas, but some travel to further sites will be required. Full driving license is essential - a shared company van is provided for a majority of journeys, but you should also be willing to use your own car when necessary.

Responsibilities:

  • Participate in pro-active monitoring of customer servers and networks
  • Call logging and administration using our helpdesk system
  • Prioritise and manage many open cases at one time

Requirements:

  • Microsoft Office 365, Windows Server, Windows 7/10, IP Networking and Firewalls
  • Full driving license
  • You should be self-motivated to learn and advance your technical knowledge with a keen interest in the IT industry and new technology.
  • You should be able to work on your own (sometimes under pressure for time or technical issues), but also as an important part of our small, friendly, team of engineers and office staff.
  • The role is customer facing and representative of the Company, so your customer facing and liaison skills must be exceptional.

Benefits:

  • Private Healthcare (currently BUPA) after 12 months.
  • You will be required to use your own car on some occasions, and therefore must be insured for business use. Mileage allowances for business related trips will be reimbursed monthly.
