What we are made of
We are looking for a Technical Support Engineer to join a team of engineers that provide critical third line application support to a Law Enforcement stakeholder community. This follows a period of continuous growth and success in the UK Government and Law Enforcement sectors.
Behind great solutions there are great people: our employees. We pride ourselves on being able to solve some of our customers’ most complex problems.
Our people are what differentiate us, they are ingenious, innovative and dedicated. We have a mix of generalists and specialists and recognise that this diversity contributes to our success. In general, we work in teams. We recognise the benefits of forming teams from a mix of disciplines, which allows us to come up with balanced, high quality solutions.
We work hard and often go the extra mile, but we recognise people’s efforts and that everyone has a life outside of work. We encourage people to speak up if they want to rotate to a new project in support of career development, or even just to face a new challenge.
Our breadth across the UK Government and Law Enforcement sectors provides diverse opportunities for our people to develop their careers in new areas of expertise or with new clients.

- Carry out or support root cause analysis into complex problems and deliver a workaround or code fix in line with service SLA’s
- Work as part of the team to deliver application and database changes when required on the back of a problem or client change request.
- Be comfortable engaging with stakeholder second line technical teams across the Law Enforcement community
- Engage with the client technical lead as required to present problems and options for resolution
- Deliver a weekly extract of the support backlog and monthly service report to the stakeholder community and customer
- Work independently and as part of a small team as required, whilst maintaining focus on quality and continual service improvement
- Participate in stakeholder site visits as required to roll out service updates, or carry out problem investigation and health checks
- Join the service Out of Hours rota (additional generous payments offered)
Service Enhancement - development opportunity:
- A period of service improvement is planned, which will provide an opportunity for the support team to work collaboratively with a project team and deliver a set of critical enhancements to this capability.
