About you

This is a technical role so it's critical that you have excellent knowledge of EUC Security (Proxy/Anti-Virus) and expert knowledge of EUC hardware/software installation & diagnostics for both Windows and Mac platforms. You'll be used to working with Commercial off the shelf (COTS), bespoke developed systems and Software as a Service (SaaS). Experience of working with Service Management platforms, ideally Service Now is beneficial.

This is a fast-paced role so you’ll thrive in this type of environment and have the ability to organise your time effectively and be a good multi-tasker. You’ll be working with in-house and external 3rd parties so it’s important that you work collaboratively to ensure seamless integration into Virgin Atlantic & Virgin Holidays teams and “One Team” working. You’ll be communicating with people across the organisation at all levels so the perfect candidate will need to evidence the ability to build strong working relationships. Not all the people you’ll be dealing with will have technical knowledge so you’ll need to have the intuition to flex your messaging accordingly.

If the above sounds like you and you also have good attention to detail to produce documentation, user guides and crib sheets for technical specialists we’d love to hear from you.
