IT Technician (Ref:138)

Salary range: 
£27,511 to £30,046 per annum

Full time, permanent 

The University of Suffolk are currently recruiting for an experienced IT Technician to join The School of Engineering, Arts, Science and Technology (EAST). EAST offers an expanding and interesting environment, with a number of key projects being delivered during 2021/22. The flagship is the new DigiTech Centre based at Adastral Park in Martlesham, an exciting local partnership with BT. This role will primarily be based at the DigiTech, with other work and attendance at the main University Waterfront campus in Ipswich.

This role will work closely with academics, external partners, support staff and students to ensure that all teaching, learning and laboratory spaces can support and enhance the combined teaching and research requirements. As well as this, the role will also collaborate closely with the University’s central IT Services to deliver services for the School and work with external technology partners and specialist resources.

Whilst the focus is on 1st and mostly 2nd line support, the ability to stretch across more technical challenges and work in partnership with other resources to deliver solutions is key. To be successful in this, you will have experience in the configuration, delivery and support of large infrastructure, desktop and device deployments. You will also have excellent customer focus and engagement skills.
