We are looking for an ICT Specialist based in Lempäälä, Turku or Helsinki

Kiilto has been shaping the future since 1919, and this is your chance to be part of it, as we are looking for an ICT Specialist with experience in ICT support or equivalent tasks. This is a great opportunity to join a rapidly growing and increasingly international group. The position will be in our Group ICT function, where you will be part of an experienced Employee and Service Excellence team supporting Kiilto’s ICT systems and applications. You will work with Kiiltonians from every country Kiilto operates in, making this a great opportunity for someone who is internationally minded. You will have excellent chances to develop your knowledge in a number of ways in helping Kiilto achieve its strategic goals. Although you will be designated specific areas of responsibility, your tasks will not be limited to those. In this role, you truly can learn new skills every day. You will report to the Employee and Service Excellence Team Lead.  

You will fit in perfectly as part of the Kiilto community if you are a natural problem solver with great customer service skills and tick some of the following boxes:   

  • Experience in ICT environments – to thrive in this role, you have some experience in ICT support or similar tasks, preferably from an international environment. You will be familiar with AD, Azure AD, ERP, M365 (e.g., PowerApps), integrations and servers. 
  • IT support know-how – you have experience in an ITSM tool or ticketing process.  
  • ERP knowledge – your main task will be supporting and developing our international ERP software. Knowledge of any ERP is therefore required.   
  • A solution-oriented approach – every problem is a great chance to learn.   
  • If you’re open, positive, and trustworthy, you’ll feel right at home with us! Similarly, a highly capable and systematic person with the willingness to explore new ideas will be in good company here.  
  • Education – you have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent.    
  • Interpersonal skills – you are a people person, and enjoy the prospect of interacting with colleagues in all the countries Kiilto operates in. 
  • Collaboration – you are someone who finds working and succeeding together highly rewarding. A good sense of humour and eagerness to learn are a great help in this regard.  
  • Language skills – the position requires fluency in English and Finnish, as you will be part of both local and global teams.  Additional languages are a plus.  

Imagine a day in the life of an ICT Specialist at Kiilto   

You grab a cup of coffee in the morning and share the latest news with colleagues. You check if there are any urgent things to take care of, or something you could help with. You notice something that is causing problems for multiple people in Sweden, but you have come across this kind of situation before. Even though it’s new to you, you feel the need to tackle it and inform those affected that help is on the way. You take a moment to try solving it yourself, but then call on colleagues to help, and together you spend the morning fixing it. When it’s all taken care of, you enjoy the feeling that comes after helping your international colleagues while learning new things yourself. 

Then it’s time for lunch with colleagues and interesting conversations with people from different areas in the company.  Next up is project meeting, where you offer insightful comments and opinions. You’ll notice how easy it is to share views and make a difference in Kiilto. 

After the meeting, you have time for yourself to check on other tasks. You prioritised them earlier, so knowing which to start with is easy. After that, you want to analyse the problem that arose in the morning and make sure it won’t happen again. You tell your colleagues what you’ve learned and your thoughts on preventing a repeat of the problem. They agree with your proposal, and you can get to work on it. 

You feel great at the end of the day – you’ve helped many Kiiltonians with their ICT problems and answering their questions. Finally, you pick up your padel racket and hit to the court with colleagues before going home for a relaxing evening.
