Ready for something new in 2021?

We've been increasing the size of our Information Services Department and have a new role for an experienced Applications Specialist to join us on our digital transformation journey.

You will be working in and managing all aspects of our on-premise SharePoint and SharePoint Online environments. This includes system administration, troubleshooting, technical and user support, configuration and performance monitoring.

With a passion for customer service and business improvement, you'll be researching and designing innovative and robust SharePoint functionality that delivers ‘fit for purpose' business solutions, facilitating collaboration, and automating and streamlining program processes. You'll also be experienced in developing training guides and providing training to end-users including "super users" on SharePoint functionality.

As our SharePoint specialist, there will also be the regular daily support activities like establishing user access permissions, responding to service desk tickets, assisting with upgrades, solution testing and implementation, and of course the important part of documenting changes.

In return, we offer a great team to work with, ongoing professional development, a variety of challenging and interesting work, a day off for your birthday, flexible working options, relocation assistance and a benefits package suited to your preferences.
