We are seeking a dynamic, out of the box, customer focused team player with a real passion for IT to help us continue our growth and success as an award-winning customer service enterprise which specialises in IT support to clients.

role description

In the role of IT Engineer, you will deliver our continually outstanding customer experience and award-winning IT support to our clients. You will have a share of clients to look after; from fixing issues, configuring accounts, configuring hardware & software and installing new equipment to auditing the client’s equipment, set up, server and networks on a continual basis. Also, proactively identifying issues, offering advice and recommendations, and ensuring that requests for quotes are handed over to our solutions team.

An average day might involve diagnosing and resolving a networking issue, researching the best solution to a customer’s problem, configuring a new computer for an upcoming installation and investigating a failed backup. Or you might find yourself investigating an ongoing performance problem with a server and recommending some potential solutions to improve the speed.


  • Managing technical requests, prioritising and dealing with them effectively
  • Conducting site visits
  • Monitoring, maintaining and remotely supporting clients’ systems
  • Fixing issues swiftly whilst causing minimum disruption to your clients
  • Working to targets, meeting and exceeding service level agreements
  • Building long lasting and trusting relationships with your clients
  • Planning and implementing ongoing projects, alongside the installation team and project team
  • Proactively identifying opportunities to improve your clients’ IT systems, specifying the appropriate technologies and giving our solutions team the necessary information to quote for the client
  • Ensuring that all documentation on client systems and any work carried out on them is accurate and up to date
  • Completing IT reviews on client systems to offer recommendations and highlight areas for concern
  • Providing a superb service and making sure the clients appreciate us as a partner in their business
  • Strong organisational and prioritisation skills to be able to manage the workloads and demands

person spec

Culture is imperative to Resolve, we have values which we think matter more than anything else and help us to deliver a continually outstanding customer experience.

We all aim to listen & understand, set high standards, take ownership, have a positive can-do attitude, spot arising or potential issues, make suggestions & implement changes.
