IT Support Technician



Technology – we can’t live with it yet we can’t live without it. There comes a time in everyone’s life when an unsolvable IT problem occurs and we go through the three stages: anger (tapping the offending machine firmly), bargaining (pleading with some unseen deity to free us from our IT peril) and resignation (calling on the unsung heroes of all businesses – IT Support).

Here at Ultimate, we’re looking for an IT Support Technician to join our dynamic Bristol-based team and provide assistance to our growing team. We need a problem solver – could it be you?
This role will incorporate a range of support services which includes activities such as Service Desk duties, telephone and email support, recording faults, supporting the set-up of new systems and upgrading existing systems, trouble shooting and escalating IT faults.
The IT Support Technician will work as part of the team providing efficient IT services and excellent standards of support throughout the organization. The successful candidate will be expected to be professional, have technical competence and excellent communication skills.
They will provide a first point of contact, processing requests for support and help with the co-ordination of the response through to resolution, providing an escalation path if necessary.
The post holder will have responsibility for managing their own tasks but will be under the direct supervision of a qualified/experienced colleague.

So if putting out fires (not real fires – just metaphorical IT ones), troubleshooting problems (metaphorical again) and saving the day (no exaggeration here) sounds like the ideal job for you then get in touch.
