Some places just offer more of what really counts and the South Taranaki District is a perfect example. Our district has some of the most spectacular scenery in the world - wedged between Mt Taranaki's majestic mountain and the rugged coastline of the Tasman Sea - the region boasts outdoor pursuits to satisfy even the most active individual and is alive with opportunities.

The position of ICT ServiceDesk Officer is a key position within the IT Unit and its key purpose is to:

  • To give exemplary customer service by responding to requests for technical assistance in person, via phone, electronically
  • Identify and escalate situations requiring attention
  • Track and route problems and requests and document resolutions
  • Assist with reporting on customer experience and problems
  • To take ownership of basic administrative duties that support Council's technology solutions
  • Assist with training staff on how to use their desktop and other basic applications

Experience with a Microsoft environment and computer literacy on current Windows versions is essential, as is an ability to communicate, provide outstanding customer service and to work as part of a team.

The position interacts with all the IT users through the Service Desk and works across our IT network that spans several remote sites within the South Taranaki district.

Previous experience in a customer services environment (ICT ServiceDesk) is desirable as is a working knowledge of fundamental operations relating to software, hardware and other equipment. Equally important is a willingness to learn and the flexibility to adapt quickly to technology changes. A current driver's licence is essential.
