An exciting contract opportunity for a 1st Line Service Desk Analyst in Reading based in Reading has arisen. The initial contract is for 3 months. However, an extension is possible.

This is a site-based contract role but is inside IR35. As a result, this role is suited to umbrella contractors only.

The hours required are Monday to Friday from 9am to 5:30pm

Working as a Service Desk Analyst you will receive, scope, and accurately log customer requests. Following that, you will process each resulting ticket by conducting fault analysis and diagnosis,  vetting, and providing technical support. You will achieve this by following the agreed processes.  Ultimately, you will provide first-line ticket resolution or escalation.


Firstly, you will identify and apply the correct priority, SLA, and category as well as capture a full detailed description of the issue. To achieve this you will utilise and update available Knowledge Bases, resulting in the maximisation of the speed of resolution and therefore the improvement of customer satisfaction.

Secondly, where the first line cannot resolve a ticket, you will escalate in line with operating procedures. As a result, you will ensure that it is assigned to either 1st Line Support or, the correct resolution group. To achieve this, you will record clear, concise, and detailed information on the ticket by effectively owning and managing all tickets assigned to you to ensure resolution is achieved within SLA. As such, you will pro-actively monitor, review and chase outstanding tickets to ensure that they are responded to promptly, so as to meet agreed contractual service levels.

Additionally, you will ensure the client is kept fully updated throughout the lifecycle of each ticket. To support this, you will manage customer expectations so as to reduce escalations.
Furthermore, you will ensure that all activities are added to call management toolsets, as well as any customer databases. This may include any chases or follow-ups from telephone calls and emails.

Vitally, you will ensure compliance to defined operating procedures, as well as maintain high standards of customer service to facilitate an excellent customer experience.

Lastly, you will aim to meet all Global Service Desk standards and agreed response times. This will include all defined telephony and email service levels.
