Service Desk Junior Analyst role

The Service Desk Junior Analyst role delivers both 1st line internal and external customer support, assistance with external ORX members as well as a varied involvement in delivering IT projects. It is an important role within the IT team ensuring that our change agenda is adequately supported and driven.

The role will be responsible for:

  • The day-to-day operation of the service desk, responding to and resolving incidents, escalating to other members of the support team where required.
  • Configuring and training users on key customer facing systems, responding to member queries.
  • Providing internal IT support to ORX staff, as such the candidate will need to have excellent customer service and communication skills.
  • Supporting projects taking place within ORX; this aspect of the role will involve pro-active coordination, task management and delivery assistance on behalf of project leads.
  • Involvement in managing customer data collection, liaising with ORX members and internal stakeholders to ensure timely completion of the data cycle import and validation tasks.

This role is expected to be a development role, starting off at entry level, then progressing through to more senior responsibilities as the candidate develops. ORX will support the candidate with mentoring and formal training opportunities, and the candidate will need to be a self-starter with an interest in IT and a drive to develop.

The role will be primarily based from home, although there will be an occasional requirement to work from the ORX office in the centre of Bath. As such the preferred candidate should live within commuting distance of Bath.

Service Desk Analyst role

Once the candidate has built up some experience as a Service Desk Junior Analyst, they will be expected to progress into the Service Desk Analyst role.

  • Azure Fundamentals AZ-900
  • AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner
  • Comptia A+

By this stage the analyst will also be able to man the ORX service desk on their own, manage all support calls that are received into the ORX service desk and be able to run data cycles from start to finish.

The candidate will also get involved with internal projects, assisting within IT and the wider ORX team by supporting the delivery of new and existing project initiatives.

At this stage, it’s expected that the Service Desk Analyst may choose to specialise into a specific area of IT (e.g. cloud, infosec, service management etc.) and will be expected to undertake further training and take on additional responsibilities in order to progress to the grade of Service Desk Senior Analyst.
