Zen Internet

  • Rochdale
The growth of both Zen’s customer base and product portfolio has led to us expanding our Technical Support Department. This role is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to immediately contribute to the success of Zen and to work within a dynamic, open minded and supportive team, gaining recognition for their individual contribution. The support desk is a vibrant, busy environment that benefits from the free exchange of creative and practical ideas.

The overall purpose of the role is to provide front line technical support to Zen's residential and business users.

This role will suit individuals who are committed to providing premium quality technical support and are able to troubleshoot in a thoughtful and efficient way, in some instances identifying a problem with limited information from the customer.
