We are looking for a Technical Support Consultant, emphasis on the Technical, to join our Services team in Leeds.

If you are a civil, structural, or construction engineer and want to take a new direction in your career, you might be the person we are looking for.

Your main tasks will include: 

  • Delivering high-level technical support to the users of our structural analysis and design software. Speaking to customers on the phone, by email, or answering questions on our forums
  • Creating, updating, and delivering training courses either in our Leeds based training centre or at sites around the UK/Ireland.  
  • Building our knowledge base by writing technical support content to the Tekla User Assistance site
