Job overview / purpose

Having grown constantly since 2010, we are looking for another engineer to join our busy and excellent team, supporting customers with the entire range of systems (Windows/Linux/Mac, networks, web hosting, telecoms. copiers etc)

We are looking for a truly technical person who is passionate about delivering the highest levels of customer support and copes well with a busy and varied working environment.

  • Deal with IT systems installations and configuration, including Windows desktops/laptops, printers, WiFi
  • On-site customer installations including network cabling
  • Assisting with IT stock management and customer asset management
  • Writing and maintaining IT documentation, internal and customer

A typical day could include a range of tasks from creating an Office 365 mailbox, installing a printer driver, building a new laptop, configuring an IP handset or installing a wireless access point – it will always be busy and varied and will frequently involve a new system or technology to get your head around.

  • A passion/drive for providing the best customer support
  • Approachable and comfortable with customer interaction

This role will be based at our offices in North Cambridge, and will involve occasional onsite work – so having a UK driving license and proximity to Cambridge will be highly beneficial, but not essential.

Desired qualification

3 x GCSE (or equivalent) at grades A-C in any subject, plus GCSE English and Maths (or equivalents) at grade D or above.

Working week

5 days per week,
