Technical Support Assistant
Swords, Dublin (with occasional travel to sites in Ireland and the UK)
€27,112 - €28,500 DOE Plus Excellent Benefits
Our client is the charity that saves lives at sea. They are now looking for a Technical Support Assistant to join them in Swords.
Working from our client’s regional bases and support centres around the UK and Ireland, the Technical Support Assistant role provides essential support to the In-service Support Coastal Maintenance team for the completion of maintenance and repairs to the fleet of lifeboats, launching equipment and lifeguard equipment.
Reporting to the Divisional Maintenance Manager, your duties will require a broad understanding of engineering operations including the administration of stores and stores deliveries. You will provide planning, scheduling, budgetary and administration support to both the Divisional Maintenance Manager and a team of Engineers, Technicians and Assistants located throughout the relevant engineering division.
The role involves some travel which will occasionally require nights away and working at other locations within Ireland and or the UK. You must be available to work away as required although this will be a less frequent requirement after completion of induction and initial training.
To be considered, you will need:
- A full driving licence and the willingness to undertake training and gain a forklift truck licence
- To be IT literate, ideally with experience of Microsoft Dynamics AX or similar business systems, such as SAP
Previous experience within an engineering environment is desirable and you must be able to co-ordinate and plan as well as accurately update AX with equipment movements and other related activities. You must be willing to provide support to the whole In-service Support team locally and act as a focal point for them, therefore you need to be well organised, a good communicator and self-motivated.
As this role often involves working on your own, comprehensive training will be provided within the organisation. You can expect to be away from home in order to complete training for certain periods during the first few months in the role, and this is seen as a requirement of accepting the role.
The importance of this role cannot be underestimated as it enables our client’s skilled engineers and technicians to focus on the critical task of keeping lifeboats and other equipment operational, efficient and safe whilst saving lives at sea.
The closing date for applications is the 14th July 2019.
Our client is an equal opportunities employer.
