Global Helpdesk IT Specialist - different kind of IT support

Are you an effective troubleshooter? Are you ready for more than just a dispatcher’s role? Would you like to be appreciated for the job you do? Have you ever wanted to improve processes, but were not empowered to do so? If so, you belong to our Global Helpdesk Team!

Within the McKinsey IT function, the Global Helpdesk Team is the starting point for your development. We provide premium technical support to all McKinsey employees, helping them to get their business technology up and running as quickly as possible, and providing guidance during new technology implementations. Naturally, to be able to meet those expectations, we offer strong onboarding and continuous development programs, which make the GHD function a talent pool for our advanced technical teams and IT leadership groups.

The GHD Specialist is not a dispatcher’s role – we take full ownership of the case and try to resolve it at the first point of contact. The GHD Specialist is an IT generalist with a passion to help others, and an understanding that the helpdesk is not only about solving problems. We always provide a positive experience with a professional attitude, including times when you are unable to resolve an issue on your own and need to work with others to find a solution.

With the automation of the simpler tasks (forgotten passwords, email issues, etc.), we are giving the power to end users to resolve the issues by themselves. This gives us more time to deal with more complex tasks where we can add value. We are empowered to improve the current ways of working and contribute to the team knowledge base.

  • Extensive knowledge of Windows (10) OS
