In this varied role, you will support the charity and its staff, whether that be in how to use the carer database; email issues; phone or laptop problems and office tools.

About the role

In this varied role you will be involved in a wide range of tasks from the detailed to low level assistance to our 88 staff.

Assisting the IT manager, your role will include a mixture of tasks from trouble shooting data/technical issues; medium sized analysis and developments around the systems; Training; local hardware configuration; liaison between the outsourced network/phone providers and general IT questions and solutions.

You will also play a key role in helping the IT manager to drive change and deliver efficiencies.

About you

Our systems and solutions are not complex and as such, this role is not a highly technical role but one where you must bring along practical experience and know-how, in order to build a rapport and a trust with the frontline teams. What is more important is that you have the ability to find solutions through support / process system change in order to ensure the business teams can function effectively.

Somebody with a medium level of IT skills/knowledge in a wide range of abilities is more preferable to a candidate with expert knowledge in one field. The successful candidate will have the ability to converse with outsource providers on IT subjects (such as VoIP; Cyber security; Active Directory) in order to get the best support for the organisation.

You must have demonstrable experience of handling a variety of technical enquiries in a busy environment and experience and understanding of IT and mobile phone equipment and hardware.  Furthermore, you will have experience of code writing in VBA at a minimum and a mid level knowledge of SQL coding.  You will also have proven experience in collating, analysing and reporting on data.
