Protect the public by keeping our critical services running.
Counter Terrorism Policing is crucial to our national security. As a service desk analyst, you’ll provide first line support for the systems that CTP depends on every day. Join us and work in an area where you know you’re making a difference. Take on this role, and you’ll be ensuring national security and public safety, working alongside emergency service colleagues, government agencies, intelligence services and the military to help keep our communities safe.
We’re looking for enthusiastic, driven and skilled professionals to join our Customer Service Centre (CSC) team who provide national support to the entire CTP network. As the first point of contact, you’ll deal with customers via email, phone and video conferencing, providing support in a contact centre environment. You’ll log the issue and track it through to resolution according to the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) best practise.
For this key role in our business, you’ll draw on your knowledge to analyse issues and prioritise them according to impact and urgency, so that first line fixes can be handled and anything more complex escalated. You’ll take ownership whilst providing the highest level of customer service throughout.
You’ll need to possess a comprehensive knowledge of Microsoft Office applications, operating systems and mobile technologies. Whilst a basic understanding of Cisco VoIP and video conferencing would also be advantageous. However, while core technical skills are important in this role, they’re only half the story.

analyse issues using first line knowledge, processes and procedures
