Role Description

Departmental IT Technician

Hours: Full Time/37 hours a week

Contract Type: Fixed Term Contract for 3 years

Applications are invited for the role of Departmental IT Technician (Chemistry and Environment), in the Faculty IT Team in IT Services (Information Services Directorate).

Part of the Faculty team, and based in the Departments of Chemistry and Environment, you will provide first line support to staff, students and visitors. You will have a friendly and customer focused approach, a good working knowledge of a range of platforms, including Windows 10 and Linux, and a willingness to get involved in the department's activities.

You'll combine a degree in a STEM subject (or equivalent experience) with a proactive and flexible approach, to deliver great IT support for research and teaching.

You will work closely with central IT services, helping people to make best use of the available facilities, whilst supporting value adding, subject-specific services. There will be opportunities to contribute to the development of central services, and to increase your knowledge and skills across your areas of work, and you’ll need to build good relationships with staff across IT Services and the departments.

Perhaps a recent graduate, or already working in first line support and looking to move into an academic environment, we’d love to hear from you.

A flexi-time scheme operates which allows for flexible working within operational guidelines.

For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Richard Fuller, Faculty IT Manager, at

The anticipated interview date is 21 March 2018.
