ICT Helpdesk Analyst at Christian Aid

Christian Aid’s Africa programmes are transforming lives for women and men, girls and boys. We are looking for someone with the passion, leadership, ambition and experience to lead resource mobilization for Christian Aid’s Africa Programme. Do you have the influencing and relationship building skills to develop high level partnerships with donors and lead teams to exploit these opportunities? Can you build effective partnerships with Country Teams and senior managers around developing impactful programmes?

About the role

The Helpdesk Analyst role is a new position within ICT, providing first-line support to all Christian Aid staff, regardless of location.  The team will comprise three post holders, all based in Christian Aid / Change Alliance offices outside of the UK.

The creation of this role, and the implementation of a new Service Delivery function within ICT, is an attempt to standardise support to all Christian Aid staff globally, by providing consistent first-line interactions: through the Jira portal, telephone and Email.  The majority of support requests raised by CA staff are expected to be dealt with at first-line level, and – working with the Lead Support Analyst, based in London – the post holders will work to define processes for standard requests that are currently escalated to second line support on a regular basis.

About you

The successful candidate will be friendly and customer-focussed, working in a professional manner with Christian Aid staff around the globe via Email, Teams or telephone.

The post holder needs to have a high technical understanding of the Windows 10 Operating System, and the hardware and software in use at Christian Aid (such as the Microsoft Office 365 suite).  With a good level of initiative, the post holder will need to triage requests from colleagues quickly and competently, following defined processes as well as using initiative to diagnose underlying issues and when to escalate to the second line support team.

Two months out of the year you may need to do early shifts from 6 am and late shifts until 9 pm, to cover the other regions when engineers are on holiday

The post holder must be bi-lingual, with professional working proficiency in French and English
