Camden is changing on the inside to make life better for everyone. Because we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind.
Our Technology Service provides innovative, efficient, and scalable technology solutions that empower our Staff and our Citizens. We are a team of collaborators and knowledge sharers working in an agile, fast-paced environment.
The IT Service Desk / Face to Face Hub is critical to our user base offering a front door to IT services with a key role in providing a user experience that will influence the overall perception of our IT services. We handle over 75,000 incoming user contacts a year, primarily through phone and e-form channels. We're looking for someone who can work collaboratively with colleagues in IT and across services to understand their needs, using that understanding to help shape an inclusive service while continuously looking for ways to improve the user experience. While self-service portals and AI-powered chatbots have a role to play, there remains room for the human touch, particularly where empathy is required, or complexity encountered.
We are seeking enthusiastic, customer focused individuals, who are strong team players with a passion for meeting the needs of the entire Council and are committed to providing a professional service desk /1^st line support function delivering excellent IT support and end user experience.
You will ensure that support tickets and calls are professionally and consistently handled, in line with service standards and procedures, ensuring agreed service levels are met or exceeded.
You will possess a fantastic telephone manner and be able to use your excellent questioning skills to collect information, trouble shoot and guide the end user through suitable diagnostic procedures to determine problems and seek appropriate solutions, demonstrating that you take ownership and see things through.
With a ‘can do’ approach to your work and a learning mind-set, you will always be seeking to improve yourself, your teams, and the user experience. You will possess excellent inter-personal skills, able to communicate effectively at all levels with technical and non-technical people, using different channels and approaches.
Experience in first line IT support would be advantageous but not essential along with familiarity with any of the following:
- Microsoft Office 365, Teams, SharePoint
- Citrix environments
- Active Directory
- Windows o/s 10
- Use of deployment automation tools e.g. SCCM, Intune
