The Company

We are working with a business whose mission is to provide businesses with exceptional, tailored IT and unified comms that are fit for purpose, exceed their clients' expectations and that their employees are proud of, and they do this by staying true to our core values.

They are looking for an experienced and ambitious 2nd line engineer to provide exceptional customer service and technical support to their clients throughout the Southwest and beyond. They are looking for someone who can talk to the person as well as the computer, who's focused on making their clients better, can man the helpdesk, help and guide first line engineers and who wants to work in a company where they can continue to learn, grow and develop in their career.

Being on the 2nd Line of the service desk, naturally, you'll be a point of escalation for our 1st Line Engineers. If they should be struggling to resolve something tricky, you'll be around to take over or lend a hand. You should be someone junior members of the team can look up to, someone they can trust, and someone that is happy to share their knowledge and expertise with those around them. They are looking for team players - not lone wolves.
