Overview

Senior IT Support Technician

The Marketing Store is a global customer engagement agency. We bring people and brands closer together.

Operating as a creative agency, strategic consultancy and a technology provider, we engage with over 110 million customers every single day for clients including McDonald’s, adidas, Nissan and O2.

Creators, thinkers, inventors and doers, our people are committed to breaking down silos, challenging the status quo and producing purposeful, award-winning work.

LIFE AT THE MARKETING STORE

We don’t see The Marketing Store as an agency, we see it as a diverse community of amazing people who come together to make great things happen.

We believe that breakthrough ideas come from extraordinary people, and to be extraordinary, we all need the freedom to be our most authentic selves. At The Marketing Store, we are accepting of all people and will continue to listen to and make space for new voices—because the more voices we have in here, the more people we can reach out there.

Our focus is and always has been on ensuring that our people ‘leave changed.’ That means investing heavily in providing them with the tools, training and freedom to grow both personally and professionally.

It also means respecting that we are all different, with different needs; acknowledging the pressures of city living, care-giving, parenting and prejudice; and understanding that our employees’ futures are as important as their nows.

Our people thank us not only in the incredible work they do for our clients, but in consistently voting us as a top place to work in Campaign magazine.

WHY WE THINK YOU WILL LOVE THIS ROLE

From our heritage in retail and promotional marketing, we are now an agency that offers clients 360 degree thinking and creative, with ‘digital’ forming an essential part of our core offering.

In line with this, and to ensure we continue to evolve as a world class, award-winning ideas agency, we have developed a new agency proposition which puts people at the heart of our process and the agency itself. Promoting digital integration and collaborative working across the entire agency is fundamental to this new proposition.

In the role of Senior IT Support Technician you’ll play a major part in the operation of both the infrastructure and the helpdesk functions supporting both our internal European colleagues (in London, Leeds and Paris) and business services. You’ll aid in the delivery of first-class work across the agency.

Working with both the IT Service Desk Manager and the European Systems Administrator, you’ll support our internal user base through our Service Desk toolkit, ensuring that all SLAs are met and the business is provided with a first class support service.

You’ll mentor junior IT Support Technicians and provide a point of escalation for all incidents and problems and it’s critical that you develop and maintain excellent relationships with all TMS staff, peers and external suppliers.

You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside the European Systems Administrator on projects related directly to core desktop IT services. During periods of increased workload you will also assist in providing infrastructure and 3rd line support to the business.

If you’re passionate about service delivery and know that successful IT is critical to business success, then this is the role for you.

Finally, we guarantee that you will leave changed. Because we help our people achieve their goals.

So come here to experience. To experiment. To make mistakes. To challenge your own limits.
