The IT Support Analyst role is often the first point of contact for IT across the business. Customer service is key to this role and the IT Support Analyst will need to seek to fully understand the needs of the customer and have a real desire to help them get to a successful conclusion.

The successful candidate will also have the following:

  • Achieved, or currently studying, an IT/Business qualification
  • 1-2 years’ experience of working in an office environment
  • Excellent customer service skills. A real desire to help people and to have the drive and tenacity to own issues from start to finish
  • An excellent approach to problem solving. To have detective like skills and take a positive approach to understand and solve even the most complex problems
  • A proactive and consistent approach to work and an ability to drive improvement in their areas of responsibility and beyond
  • A desire to work as part of a collaborative team

It would be great if you had:

  • 1-2 years’ experience of working in an IT role
  • Experience of end user support in an IT environment
  • An understanding of Active Directory, Office 365 Administration, Group Policy, DNS and DHCP.
  • Good A-Level results in Computer Science, Maths, Physics or ICT
