IT Support Officer

This role forms part of a small team of IT professionals, providing local IT desktop, server and application support to staff and students within the Department.
You will be responsible for a range of IT related tasks and will work closely with members of the Department and with external IT colleagues. You will ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget and will use initiative to problem solve, and implement improvements to current working methods.
You will have knowledge of email clients, PC and Mac operating systems and proven technical skills for a range of IT products, in particular MS Excel and MS Access. You will also have proven interpersonal skills, along with self-motivation and ability to work independently to tight deadlines.
Whilst the role is a Grade 6 position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 5 (£24,983 - £29,799 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. The development from Grade 5 to Grade 6 would be supported with suitable training and clear objectives and it would be expected that the progression from Grade 5 to 6 would be within 12 months. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
All applicants must complete a short application form and upload a CV and supporting statement. To apply for this role, please click on the ‘Apply Now’ button in the link below.
