You will be a key member of the team by performing day-to-day operational tasks as well as fault finding and diagnosis of our mobile, VOIP and other communication systems and services. You will assist in ensuring that all our services which currently support approximately 5,500 telephone extensions and 800 mobile phones are well maintained and run smoothly. 

The overall aim is for the team is to transform how our customers are able to collaborate with solutions that are mobile, secure and deliver reliable, seamless integrated voice, video calling & messaging.

You’ll be able to demonstrate flexibility and the ability to work under pressure, and you will have experience of working with a range of stakeholders. 

The post is available immediately and is a full-time, open post. Full training will be given to the right candidate if necessary.

Additionally, some ‘out of hours’ (including weekend) work may be required. Overall the working hours would be expected to be standard working hours in any one week (currently 37 hours). A flexi-time scheme operates which allows for flexible working within operational guidelines.
