The role

  • Maintaining ownership of any request until the resolution and meeting agreed SLA’s.

  • Assisting with regular business reporting, using a variety of data sources and analytical techniques.
  • Identifying, implementing and monitoring of productions systems.
  • Supporting with ad-hoc BizOps projects across the business – always with an eye on process automation. Requirements
