Job Description

In Ealing and Kensington we've grown into one of the leading housing associations in London and the South East.

In the early 1960s the UK was emerging from the aftermath of the second world war and although the economy was reviving, poor and overcrowded housing conditions persisted in many areas.

For a large number of people on low incomes, the only way to find somewhere to live was to rent privately. Accommodation was often very inadequate, tenancy agreements insecure and rents high.

The documentary Cathy Come Home (directed by Ken Loach and shown on TV in 1966) was instrumental in highlighting the issues of homelessness, unemployment and poverty and it helped alert the public to the scale of the country's housing crisis.

The primary role will be of a 1st line support analyst. This role is key in the IT team as it is the face of IT and the primary point of communication.

The role will be aiming to provide a broad view of what skills and processes are required to be part of the IT team. The apprentice will be exposed to a large range of people and departments as well as projects.

The role will be ideal for someone looking to make their first step in the world of IT within a service desk.
