Are you a Talented Junior Technical Support Analyst? Are you keen to work on the latest Microsoft technologies?
 

Excellent opportunity for a talented Junior-level Technical Support Analyst to join the Software & Applications Support team who power one of the largest housing associations in London and the south-east, providing homes for around 170,000 people. 

Experience of providing 2nd line support for Microsoft applications within a Service desk or Application Support environment would be advantageous.

Who we are:

We are one of London’s leading housing social enterprise, managing over 60,000 properties across the capital and building thousands more.

The ability to work to tight deadlines and prioritise own work is also essential.

Our culture of innovation means your ideas on how to improve our service will be welcomed. This role will be both challenging and rewarding. You’ll be highly motivated, with experience of working in a customer facing role. You’ll also enjoy finding new ways of doing things and are comfortable explaining recommendations.

+ Demonstrate the ability to prioritise own work and work with minimum supervision.
