About Schroders

We're a global investment manager. We help institutions, intermediaries and individuals around the world invest money to meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future.

We have around 4,000 people on six continents. And we've been around for over 200 years, but keep adapting as society and technology changes. What doesn't change is our commitment to helping our clients, and society, prosper.

The base

It's a brand new site, and a brand new team, putting digital first. So we're looking for people who are excited about setting things up, shaking things up, and working across teams. It's a chance to shape how we work rather than slot into an established structure.

It'll have same high standards and international reputation as our HQ in the City of London, without being in the city: a big, countryside campus (and no commute on the Tube) means life will feel a little different.

The team

We support our international offices by developing, rolling out and maintaining our systems and processes, using cutting-edge software and hardware. Our new Broadlands Business Campus means there's a great working environment for the team.

We know that helping you balance personal and professional commitments is a big part of that, so we're open to flexible working. You can do this job from 3 to 5 days per week.

  • Monitor availability and performance of desktop systems and rectify issues as required
  • Troubleshoot and resolve complex desktop related issues escalated from first and second level support
  • Identify key improvements to existing desktop delivery processes
  • Assess, document and implement desktop platform changes as required in conjunction with risk and security teams
  • Document processes for internal policies and procedures related to desktop platforms

  • Excellent written and verbal skills
  • Positive attitude capable of remaining positive when under pressure
  • A good communicator, and able to work collaboratively in a global team
  • Someone who can operate in a fast changing environment and take ownership of their work
  • Someone who will challenge the status quo and improve the overall user experience
