You will provide sympathetic advice to customers on their IT queries, remaining calm under pressure, and where possible resolving their query or problem at first contact. You will also follow standard diagnosis routines to identify the caller and type of problem gaining sufficient information to resolve the query or where applicable to escalate to other teams within Computing Services and the wider University community.
