+ Strong educational and/or SEN background, i.e. experience in a school
+ Able to explain complex information in simple, clear terms to non-IT school staff
+ Excellent written skills for emailing and confident when speaking on the phone
+ Very good level of literacy and numeracy – English and Maths GCSEs are essential
+ Good analytical and problem-solving skills
+ Up-to-date technical knowledge (You've been using computers a lot recently!)
+ An in-depth understanding of the packages our subscribing schools are using OR the willingness to develop that understanding
+ Good interpersonal and customer care skills
+ Good accurate record keeping
+ Ability to deal tactfully with the occasional difficult caller
+ Ability to work flexibly as the duties change quickly and often.
