Love diagnosing and solving complex IT problems for others? Interested in continuing your IT career within the NHS?

If you do, this could be the job for you as we are currently looking to recruit an IT Support Technician to join the team based in Maglona House.

Interviews will be held on 17th July 2024.

The team provides remote and field based support to our user base both in clinical and non-clinical settings across North and West Cumbria. As well as supporting end user devices within the operational environment (hardware, software and firmware), you will support the delivery of projects.

You will need to build relationships with clinical and non-clinical staff and be the point of contact for managing all hardware and software issues assigned to you whilst working in accordance with the Trusts service level agreement. As a result, efficient and effective communication skills in a wide range of forms are vital.

Participation in an extended out of hours rota covering evenings and weekends may be required. As well as the flexibility to work outside of working hours when required.
