Abrecco’s Edinburgh based client is offering keen Application Support Analysts a great opportunity to get stuck into project delivery alongside their application support duties working across database, MI, BI, workflow and document management systems amongst others. The lucky candidate will be well rewarded for their efforts as they get involved in projects from requirements gathering to solutions delivery (even leading on some smaller ones) and act as a point of escalation for the Service Desk team, resolving application issues efficiently and preventing their reoccurrence.

- Being involved in project delivery; gathering requirements, configuring, shaping and implementing solutions
- Leading on smaller projects and ensuring solution resilience and scalability
- Building on existing platforms and applications to meet business needs

- Infrastructure technology knowledge (AD/virtualisation and storage tools, etc.) would be beneficial
- Any experience with Outsystems, Aderant Expert / SSRS / Intapp / Qlikview / iManage would be advantageous

These are brand new and exciting opportunities and attitude is as, if not more important than skills. If you feel you have right qualities to contribute to the technical direction of an established organisation in Edinburgh’s city centre as they embark on a series of technology focussed initiatives then get in touch or apply now before it’s too late!
