Job Description

Application Support Analyst - Central London. The Ashdown Group has been engaged by an international financial services house to assist them in their search for an Applications Support Specialist to join a growing UK technology team. The role will focus on support of the core financial applications estate and will involve close interaction with teams in the USA and India.

The successful candidate will be a highly articulate and an intelligent Application Support Analyst. Experience working within the financial services industry combined with strong SQL scripting skills are ESSENTIAL, while exposure working with the SQL BI suite (SSRS and SSAS with some SSIS) would be highly advantageous to your application. Knowledge of object oriented programming, gained either commercially or academically would be of particular interest, as would experience with Tableau and/or Visio. The role will include elements of general user support, monitoring of batch processing and automated functions, system rollouts, report generation and broad production support and troubleshooting. There will be considerable opportunity to get involved in projects for new implementations. You will formally be a member of the Applications Support team, but the only member of the team working in the London office, alongside the London IT Manager and his team.

This role is likely to suit a candidate with a degree in computer sciences or possibly in finance, with previous experience working in the financial services sector. Remuneration (£35,000 to £50,000) will be dependent on depth of relevant experience.
