In this job you will be...
Resolving application and product incidents on the helpdesk, you'll impress our customers with your technical know-how as you work out what's gone wrong. Putting the right measures in place to change the client's site construction or making sure the relevant technical specialist fixes it quickly, you'll impress them with the slick service they're receiving. This dynamic role isn't all about the techie side of things - it's about being a calm and confident voice at the end of the phone that makes everything better.
Employees are at the very heart of what they do and they have a very attractive package of benefits on top of their salaries which includes a generous holiday allowance each year, flexible hours, life assurance, smart casual dress code and a subsidised canteen.

Who should apply...
Candidate will need to have great communication skills - so helpdesk and customer service experience would be a big plus. With GCSE's (or equivalent) in maths and English (grades A-C), a vocational IT qualification would be nice but isn't essential. Obviously you'll need to be computer literate, with some experience of operating systems and/or PCs - and you'll be keen to learn as much as you can about our products. And if you've got any know-how about the insurance industry - that would be even better.
