1) Handling tickets that come into our bespoke system or taking calls to support.
a. Here you would be expected to investigate the issue to validate and confirm the problem. This may involve an extended investigation that could require you to interact with the end user in a number of ways (on the phone, screen sharing or physical visit). On verifying the steps needed to reproduce the issue you would assign the ticket to a developer for fixing. Depending upon the nature of the ticket you may be the one doing the fix!
2) Creating Reports.
a. Using the data query language T-SQL you will create stored procedures to get information out of the database to produce reports in our bespoke system.
3) Testing new development or bug fixes before going live.
a. Essentially you would be the gateway to new work or fixes being put into live production. You will test the work to breaking, putting yourself in the shoes of the end user to think through how they might interact with it and what they might do, feeding back to the developer your findings to assist in producing a usable end product that meets or exceeds the specification.
4) Producing Documentation
a. This might be training manuals, or other such ancillary information that might support the release of new projects or support existing ones.
5) Providing Training
a. Here you may be required to hold training sessions to individuals or groups as necessary.
6) Coordinating releases
a. Help to coordinate across multiple departments, releases that could impact on the operation of the business.
