Service Desk Coördinator @ Ardo



Ardo is a rapidly growing organisation and is evolving from a rather decentralised SME to a centrally managed market leader. The growth and scale of the organisation means that there is a need for the business operations, as well as the IT landscape, to evolve further in line with this new reality. 

Ardo is investing heavily and in the coming years wants to focus strongly on further standardisation and automation to create a central IT infrastructure with group services. The ambition is to divide the IT Infrastructure & Services Team into various competence centres that will consist of System Engineers, level 2 Service Engineers and external consultants:
– Networking, firewalls, security
– Compute: servers, data centre, backup, Azure
– Office 365, Sharepoint, Teams
– End-point: PCs, software, packaging 

As a Service Desk Coordinator you are responsible for the design and management of a proactive IT Service Team that focuses on the technical support of the sites in Belgium (Ardooie, Koolskamp, Geer, Kortemark), France and Germany. You do this from the home base in Ardooie. 
You take charge of the Service Desk Team and together with your fellow Service Desk Engineers you are the first point of contact for the business, whereby providing excellent customer and technical service is central. In addition, as coordinator of the Service Desk Team, your main focus is to deliver the best employee experience with a "first time right" mindset. You achieve this by dispatching & prioritising requests, improving end-user documentation, reporting and identifying improvements.
You like to think along: based on analysis you offer insights on where you can improve as a team both technologically and operationally. In addition, you work closely with both the application and the infrastructure departments in the context of projects and optimisations.  
Ardo is growing rapidly, which means that the IT landscape for which you provide support is also developing rapidly. Ardo expects you to think along and to help implement the future vision for the service desk together with your colleagues.
