Senior Application Support Analyst
At Hammersmith & Fulham, we are ambitious in reforming the council to ensure this is a place for everybody. Within the Resources department, our ambition is to be 'ruthlessly financially efficient' in everything that we do, to ensure that our residents and services are receiving the best value for money whilst challenging old-fashioned thinking, unfairness and removing waste where possible.
Focused on H&Fs supplier hosted Planning, Building Control and Regulatory Services application (currently Idox Uniform but migrating to NEC Assure). An experienced and organised analyst with solid technical ability and excellent people skills to lead across all aspects of application support and related project delivery. Early areas for development will be system integration, business intelligence and potentially a migration to a new supplier.
Our mission is to be the best council. To do this we need the best people to help build our vision. Successful candidates will be self-motivated, able to communicate effectively at every level, and driven to challenge themselves and us as an organisation to be the best we can be.
If you’re looking to develop your career in a fast-paced, professional environment whilst making a difference, then we look forward to hearing from you.
