As a Technical Projects Support Lead, you'll be responsible for assisting in the delivery of various technical projects, including system developments, upgrades, and patching. You'll collaborate closely with NEP Programme Managers and the Process Development Team to contribute to process and system enhancements.

Your expertise will be crucial in resolving system-related issues, serving as the first point of contact for NEP Clients and coordinating with external service providers to ensure prompt resolutions.

Working closely with our Technical, Projects, and Development teams, you will contribute to the implementation of system developments, upgrades, and patching.

Proficiency in Java, JavaScript, React, jQuery, HTML, CSS, and SQL is essential for this role. As the first point of contact for system-related issues, you will need strong communication skills to convey technical information efficiently and effectively to non-technical colleagues.

In addition to technical expertise, the ideal candidate will demonstrate strong decision-making skills and a customer service-oriented mindset. You will evaluate issues, compare data, and recommend solutions to meet the expectations set out in the NEP Consortium Agreements.

We are looking for someone who is not only proficient in the mentioned technologies but also enthusiastic about gaining exposure to and learning new technologies. If you're passionate about technology and eager to expand your technical stack, this role offers an exciting opportunity for growth and development.
