Senior Support Analyst
The Job

The Lead Agency has experienced significant growth over the last year and an opportunity has arisen for a 1st & 2nd Line Support Analyst within our IT Team. This role will be required to triage all incoming software support requests, addressing BAU technical tasks wherever possible and then raising tasks to development teams where further support is required.

The role will be both internal and external client focused and therefore include support and training for external clients using our client software products.

Initially reporting to the Support and Infrastructure team leader, there is the potential this role will evolve into a team leadership role itself as the support function grows.

The Responsibilities

Your main daily focus will be as follows:

  • Triage support tickets using the JIRA Helpdesk system
  • Handle incoming client support telephone calls as required
  • Investigate and resolve issues/tasks where possible
  • Escalate complex issues to development teams as required
  • Provide client software training and release support
The Skills

The right candidate needs to demonstrate a clear ability to prioritise work under pressure, manage complex technical tasks and know when to seek assistance. Communication is a key focus and you must be adept at building strong relationships with both internal and external stakeholders and clients.

You will be working in an innovative ‘tech’ environment. The right candidate will demonstrate a passion for technology and be been to learn.

You would ideally have experience/knowledge of:

  • Database querying using SQL Server
  • Triage/Ticket Management
  • General troubleshooting and technical investigation
  • Consulting with business stakeholders and working to tight deadlines
  • External client support and training
  • System configuration and support
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Able to build basic user guides

A ‘can do’ attitude is a must and the successful support analyst will have the opportunity to fast track their career both in terms of knowledge, training and responsibilities.
