Under general supervision of the IT Director this position will be responsible for first and second lines of technical support for all County departments. This position will operate within the IT Service Operation part of the Service Desk Lifecycle.  The first line of support is the service desk. The Service Desk is the key to the implementation of the request fulfillment and incident management processes. As the first line of support the service desk is involved in the Incident management process. Once end users contact the service the service desk should attempt to collect as much information and diagnostics about the incident as possible. This will reduce resolution time for all minor incidents and first-contact resolutions consequently increasing end user satisfaction. If First-Line Support is not able to resolve the incident right away the incident will be triaged to the Second-Line Support. Second-Line Support of incident management is a role requiring greater technical skills than those of First-Line. This role is directly involved in incident diagnosis and resolution. In addition to these roles the Desktop Technician will support and maintain end user computer systems, desktops, mobile, and peripherals through the County. This includes installing, diagnosing, repairing, maintaining, and upgrading all software, hardware, and equipment while ensuring optimal workstation performance.
