Head of Application Support
Remote
£60-65KPA + Benefits

Our client develops and sell Enterprise Tools primarily for email migration from any platform to usually 365 although the end platform can vary too. They sell direct to customer and through Partners.

A key service that our client offers to Partners and Customers is varying levels of technical support and customer service depending on the package that they have taken up. There is a team of 5 current Application Support Analysts that effectively provide 3rd line support. There is also a dedicated small team that provides software engineering for any bug fixes that might be required. But it is the Application Support team that they require a Manager to lead due to the existing Head moving out of sector into something completely different.

The team is broadly functioning well. The least experienced person in the team has been there 3.5yrs and the processes and ways of working are in a decent place but they do want the new Head to come in and review and evolve with continuous improvement. Not to rip up and start again but make recommendations and tweak. They also want this team to provide more proactive engagement with Partners and Customers and not just being reactive as is the case now. Team review and management and structure is also required plus implementing a Customer Success Programme.
