A large part of the role is building a strong client relationship based on technical competence and trust in the advice and support given. This is achieved by developing in depth knowledge and understanding of the company’s application software and the business environment into which it is used and having the necessary experience of Microsoft database applications and web technologies.
The application software is designed for corporate libraries, archives, records and knowledge services.
Consulting and configuration advice on the most suitable set up of the database for client’s data and workflows in the application. This includes ensuring that data that is migrated from their legacy system(s) is accurately loaded and is in good consistent order, so that it can be searched and presented to end users in the best possible way.
The role calls for someone who can work within a team but be responsible for setting their own work plans and being responsible for meeting client expectations. There is minimal day to day supervision of the individual and the company is therefore looking for someone with a proactive approach, a self-starter who is used to solving problems and finding solutions.
The software is developed by a team of Microsoft Software Engineers and is continuously updated and improved to meet client needs. The application is built in Microsoft SQL Server and is fully web browser based. You will not be expected to program but you will be required to create scripts to extract and manipulate data within a SQL database.
The clients expect someone who is friendly and competent, calm when presented with technical problems and is ready and knowledgeable to engage and assist them promptly in the support of the application.
The company is dedicated to customer service and support and will provide all training and assistance to support the person appointed to build the necessary expertise and knowledge.
