This position is a role that is being created in reaction to business growth, and will involve overseeing a team of 2nd line support engineers – providing direction, co-ordinating their activities and acting on behalf of the management team in organising their day to day activities.

This role will be part of an existing team who are experienced in working to ensure that all of their clients information and IT systems are protected and functioning to the highest possible level. You will have a varied range of daily responsibilities and tasks, including the management of any Tier 2 level tickets and the taking part in scheduled professional services activities.

The position is aimed at an individual who is able to show previous experience in both providing technical support to clients, as well as supervising a team of support engineers, as the role has the potential for the right individual to move into a management role in the future as the company continues to grow.
