This is a training role, contributing to delivery of quality communication, technical support and implementation services to our customers. We focus on supporting our customers in making the best use of technology in their business, in particular (but not limited to) Microsoft products and services.

Our Apprentice Business Support Technicians are often the first to touch a new Helpdesk Case, making sure issues are handled quickly and customers are kept updated. Apprentices are supported by the more experienced members of our Support Team.

Benefits:

  • A fast-paced and varied environment (we all enjoy what we do, making the most of our different skillsets, pulling together as a team and delivering great results for our customers)
