This support also involves providing education and training to staff and students, monitoring service performance and timeliness, documenting problems and related solutions and assisting with the Student Help Desk Service.

The Service Desk Officer will also liaise with the IT support team to provide effective support for all products and services including resolving 2nd level work orders within queues owned by the Client Services team, developing specialist technical and/or functional expertise to extend the team’s capabilities, performing periodic preventative maintenance and designing and implementing solutions to meet the needs of clients.

To ensure availability of fundamental systems and services, staff within IT may be required to work outside normal working hours and/or be rostered to be on-call, including over the end-of-year University close-down period.

Additionally, in accordance with the University’s Staff Code of Conduct – Governing Policy, all staff are expected to display professional behaviour, communicate respectfully, and perform their duties responsibly.
