Job description

We’re proud to be ranked #24 in the MSP501 list of IT Managed Service Providers in EMEA. This puts us as one of the UK’s leading independent providers of IT Services, IT Support & Cyber Security. Not only this, we're  a Microsoft Gold Partner which ranks us in the top 5% of all Microsoft Partners globally.

We've grown a lot since we got started back in 2010. From our humble beginnings of our CEO working out of his bedroom as a teenager, we're now one of the most respected and successful IT Managed Services companies in the UK. But we're not stopping there (even though our mums, partners and friends reckon we should have a rest). We have big ambitions and can only make them happen if the people who work at LMS Group have big ambitions too. So if you're the kind of person who rolls up their sleeves and gets stuck in, LMS Group might be just the place to kick-start or further build your career.

In order to meet our ambitions, we are now recruiting for a Technical Team Leader within the Managed Services team.

The role of the Technical Team Leader is to lead, manage and hold accountable the direct reports within their team, and to ensure the continued development of the team whilst delivering a high level of service and IT Support to our clients. This includes ensuring that all processes and procedures are followed, updated, and developed to adhere to our continuous improvement framework. The Technical Team Leader will work closely with the Service Delivery Manager to ensure that the optimum efficiency of the team and to review, develop and act on key KPIs / metrics to ensure business and team goals are achieved. When required, the Technical Team Leader will be the primary point of contact for client escalations and providing solutions to problematic technical issues.

This role is a fantastic opportunity for the appointed candidate to take the next move and step-up in their career progression, likely from a hands-on technical role, to a role that is both technical and yet also involves elements of people-management. This role would likely suit a 2nd Line candidate from another MSP / IT Company who's looking for not only career progression, but to also be part of a high-growth, high-opportunity and high-energy company.
