Who we are looking for We are looking for people who get a thrill out of helping others with their technology. Our business users are very talented individuals and are focused on the continued success of our company. Sometimes they will need advice or help with the technology they use and they will call you for that help, meaning that you are now responsible for getting the Business back to work. As such we want someone who will take care of the Business, understand their priorities and fix our technology 1st time. If the problem cannot be fixed 1st time then you will own the problem with frequent communication with the business until you have delivered the resolution.
You will be the frontline of Shared Service Operations - busy with a hands-on and can-do approach responding to everyone across Schroders, in any role and at every level. Answering routine questions, cries for help and everything in between whilst always looking for ways to improve out service.
If you are the sort of person that gets that feel good feeling by delivering excellent service to others then you are right for Schroders.
About Schroders We're a global investment manager. We help institutions, intermediaries and individuals around the world invest money to meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future.
We have around 4,000 people on six continents. And we've been around for over 200 years, but keep adapting as society and technology changes. What doesn't change is our commitment to helping our clients, and society, prosper.
The base You'll be based at our Broadlands Business Campus near Horsham in West Sussex. That's home to our new Technology Operations Centre (TOC). We work a hybrid working model, based both in our TOC and at home.
We're looking for people who are excited about setting things up, shaking things up, and working across teams. We have the same high standards and international reputation as our HQ in the City of London, without being in the city: a big, countryside campus (and no commute on the Tube) means life feels a little different.
The team We support our international offices by developing, rolling out and maintaining our systems and processes, using cutting-edge software and hardware. Our Broadlands Business Campus means there's a great working environment for the team.
