Due to retirement and internal promotion, we have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual with experience of using SIMS in a school environment to join our dedicated and friendly SIMS Support Team. In this role you will be involved in supporting schools via our service desk and providing training, both on site in schools and at the Hertfordshire Development Centre in Stevenage, to develop and support effective use of the software for users. There will also be the opportunity to suggest, contribute to and develop new services, with the support of other members of the team.

You should be a highly motivated, flexible and collaborative team player who can manage your own workload to meet deadlines and contribute to new projects. You must have excellent communication skills, be a fast learner, have good problem solving skills, the ability to work under pressure and be committed to supporting schools.
