Are you a focused and dynamic ICT Application Support Officer who thrives on change? Are you committed to the delivery of customer focused service improvement? If so, this is an exciting and challenging time for you to join us where you will have the opportunity to impact change and bring about improvements.

An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Business Transformation Department for a dynamic and resourceful ICT Application Support Officer to support the delivery of ICT Services at both Bromsgrove District and Redditch Borough Councils.

Working across both Councils you will be expected to ensure that the Business Applications, supported by ICT, are available to the departments and working correctly enabling council services to be delivered successfully. Should the Business Application fail at any time you will work to resolve the problem as soon as possible and action any options available through external support contracts.

The officer requires a detailed understanding of the services areas and actively builds a professional relationship with customers, understanding and delivering the proactive help they need to enable them to improve service delivery.

As many of the business applications exchange information, an understanding of how this is achieved and an ability to develop and support these processes is vital.

The shared ICT team at Bromsgrove and Redditch are currently involved in the implementation and support of a number of exciting projects using leading edge technologies.

A proven ability to plan, organise and manage priorities is essential along with excellent analytical skills and the ability to present complex information to a wide range of audiences both verbally and in writing.

The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Monday 28th August 2017. Interviews will be held on 5th and 6th September 2017.
