About You:

You’ll be very customer facing and able to provide excellent customer service. You will want to put the Customer first as the focus. The role has a lot of phone useage, so you’ll be comfortable on the phone, dealing with numerous support queries and capable of handling pressure.

You'll be able to prioritise technical call tickets efficiently and effectively, and self manage your tickets to minimise Customer interruptions so that tickets are completely in a timely fashon.

You’ll exhibit professionalism at all times, and aim to ensure that the customer remains delighted.

A key need is to be able to talk to our Customers in non-technical English, when they are not technical.

Ideal candidates will be aware of and have experience using remote control tool, or remote monitoring, maintenance and control tools (RMM) from major vendors.

This role is primarily office based, but could gradually involve Customer visits, as you know more about each site.
Out of hours work is likely to be required periodically, particularly when responding to out of hours calls, or weekend work, during a system migration or office move, but this will not be on a formal rota and not a main aspect of this role.
