  • Escalate issues to the IT Service Desk to ensure that more complex problems can be addressed promptly.
  • Train and coach end users to optimise use of desktop software.
  • Create and amend user accounts, load approved software and provide fault diagnosis and resolution so that users have access to the system within an agreed turnaround time.
