Their Technology Services team has the mission of optimising the productivity of the employees by supporting their technology needs, whether that’s fixing a computer/network, troubleshooting a conference room’s camera or supporting a live Corporate event.

When you aren’t supporting a live event, you’ll be responsible for making sure the client’s conference and event spaces meet their high standards at all times. You’ll assist with cable management, hardware upgrades, configuration and software updates in all meeting spaces. You’ll be empowered to look for ways to optimise the conference room experience for users and partner teams.
