What will the apprentice be doing?

You will be working in a dynamic Helpdesk role within an IT department that carries out most tasks in-house. This will involve working in various databases, and as such, an understanding of how they work is strongly desirable. The Helpdesk role is expected to allow you to progress to be an awesome IT all-rounder. We pride ourselves on our ability to resolve issues on first contact. The hope is that in time, users with a problem printing could rely on you to know about how to reposition a device for better efficiency, get toner and paper into a device, right through to how Word prints, driver installation and configuration. We haven’t even mentioned macros and utilities we develop in house. Mobile device enrolment, Telephony, cabling should all become second nature.

Your duties and responsibilities in this role will consist of:

  • Resolving or referring the calls raised by colleagues as appropriate.
  • Maintaining, developing, regulating and over-seeing the operation of the firm’s Call Logging software.
  • Instructing other users in use of the Call Logging software.
  • Liaising with providers outside the firm where necessary.
  • Preparing statistical reports of calls logged for the IT manager
  • Managing, organising and updating relevant data using other database applications.
  • Contribute to maintaining a safe and healthy working environment.
  • Contribute to maintaining and improving office procedures.
  • Any other duties which are required by the firm.
