Working exclusively with a company in South Nottingham, I am looking for an enthusiastic Application Support Specialist to join their small help desk team!

The working environment there is excellent, both in terms of layout and also modernity; it’s an open plan office with a funky theme, bright colours, plants, etc. it’s a really nice space to be in! They have some social events between colleagues, such as movie nights, birthday celebrations, occasional pub visits, and some of the techies frequent local tech meetups as well! At lunch times, you can go for a walk or picnic in the park around the corner, visit the tuck shop, play on their pool table or games console!

Being part of a small team with a pleasant and positive culture, you will provide application support via phone, email and a ticketing system. You will monitor, log and own all types of incoming support requests, providing first time fixes when possible, and identifying where issues need to be raised through to the development team for resolution, whilst maintaining a high level of client communication and improving the overall support experience.

You will need excellent communication skills (verbal and written), combined with a very outgoing and sociable personality, too, as it’s a collaborative environment that you’ll be working in. Your personality is just as important to this role as your technical skills! There is plenty of room for progression here - both within the Support function, and even Development and beyond!
