This is an opportunity for someone new to IT to gain a solid foundation in IT Service Management. As a Service Management analyst, you will spend time with each of the different areas within the team to give you a broad appreciation and understanding of all aspects of service management.

On a day-to-day basis this will mean working alongside one or more members of the team to develop your awareness of their specific area(s). Under their direction and guidance, you will be asked to help with any number of activities that they themselves undertake, including process/service design and ongoing review, service support and delivery, service analysis and reporting.

In addition to the practical experience you gain every day, you will be given the opportunity to undertake appropriate ITIL courses. Over time it is expected that you will naturally gravitate towards one of the areas that you have worked in to help you further your career either with or outside of the company.

The firm operates a federated IT function that makes best use of lower cost locations, centres of excellence and suppliers' expertise from across the globe. Overall, the Service Management function ensures that the firm receives high quality service and support, and value for money, across its systems and teams around the world.

The Service Management team comprises around 20 people, based in London. However, the function also provides the framework and energy to a wider, virtual team around the IT network to ensure consistency and standards in all regions. The function broadly covers the following areas, all of which you will have the opportunity to get involved in.
  • ITIL-based process development and assurance (Incident, Problem, Change, Release and Asset Management for example, as well as the IT Service Catalogue)
  • Setting and supporting the IT Operating Model, ensuring consistency, efficiency and effectiveness
