As this is a third level support role, we would anticipate demonstrable experience in business continuity and disaster recovery planning. In addition to ensuring continuous service availability, you will expected to report on patch management and that it remains above the defined threshold.

 

The successful candidate will have good interpersonal and communication skills in discussing resolutions with users and their team. They should be willing to go the extra mile to take responsibility in ensuring a high level of service for our partners and other organisations we support.
