  • have experience in PC support
  • are good at diagnosing problems with hardware (PCs and printers for example)
  • are able to use tools to repair machines

Particular qualifications are not required.

You will be working in a small team of specialists and you should be a team player able to work well without close supervision, and also to able work under pressure. You should be able to explain technical concepts to users of differing IT ability, increasing their IT knowledge and confidence. We seek people who are committed to upholding and demonstrating the Christian ethos of Wycliffe UK, and to achieving the core aims and objectives of the organisation.

New month - new role - IT Director

From today I am IT Director for Wycliffe Bible Translators in the UK. When a couple of my colleagues heard this was coming up they were concerned who was going to do the user support I'd been doing and I was able to reassure them that this was in addition to my current work. It's not a full-time job so I should be able fit it in alongside everything else.

After 10 years in my current role it's going to be good to have a new challenge.
