  • Handling support calls and escalations from end users.
  • Responding to support calls within strict SLAs.
  • Handling escalations from junior service desk members and providing advice.
  • Attending customer sites to resolve issues which cannot be handled remotely.
  • Ensuring the smooth daily running of our infrastructure and performing maintenance as required.
  • Programming and installing VoIP handsets at customer sites.

Key skills:

  • Windows Server 2008R2/2012R2/2016 administration and maintenance.
  • Microsoft Exchange 2010/2013/2016
  • Active Directory and Group Policy

  • Configuration and management of routers, firewalls and switches and networking diagnostics and troubleshooting.
  • Experience in a service desk environment and with a ticketing system is preferable.
  • Experience or exposure to Citrix XenApp and Citrix Netscaler.
  • Experience of VoIP telephony.
