The Institute of Cancer Research is a world-class cancer research organisation with international excellence ratings across all of its research programmes. It is a College of the University of London and, in partnership with The Royal Marsden Hospital Trust, forms the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Europe.
The IT Helpdesk is the central point of contact for all IT related incidents, tasks and requests, providing a high quality call logging and 1st line technical support facility to all Institute members. It will be your duty to provide call logging and 1st line support to all PC/MAC/Laptop users (approx 1200 users, making approx. 1100 telephone calls a month). You will be responsible for the timely recording of calls, initial problem investigation and the monitoring of calls through to resolution, invoking escalation procedures when required. Central to the role is ensuring that all calls made to the IT Helpdesk are dealt with and resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible, minimising the disruption of service to end users.
