I am aware that his role has required him to work in IT support for both Mac and PC platforms. Besides technical knowledge, it is important that IT support staff have sound communication skills and are focused on meeting client needs .

Xerxes has been helpful, patient and unending pleasant in his interaction with staff despite the heavy load of users needing support in the School. At a personal level, I have had to use his services on several occasions in relation to set up of new computers, vpn connections to the Auckland City Hospital Network, back up hardware as well as a diverse number of software queries. I have found him to be very helpful and competent at all times and, as above, very patient with a user with limited IT knowledge. I would rate his customer relations as of very high standard and this is backed up with broad experience in a number of IT positions and a sound technical background.
