    IT Support Technician - UK Athletics (UKA) Birmingham - £25,750 - £29,870 pa

    Just spotted this position. If it was nearer I would be tempted myself as I would love to be involved with sport and real world! (And good salary for a Technician's Post, but we cannot talk about that)


    £25,750 - £29,870 per annum

    UK Athletics (UKA), the National Governing Body for the premier Olympic sport of athletics has an exciting vacancy for a full time IT Support Technician, to provide direct support to the employees of UKA and England Athletics.

    The successful candidate will have experience in a similar position and have a strong technical background including Microsoft Windows Client and server experience, networks and Microsoft Office products and Blackberry devices. Candidates must also be able to demonstrate experience in diagnosing and solving hardware and software faults.

    The role will involve reactive IT support and offering Troubleshooting solutions to over 180 employees in diagnosing and solving any hardware and software issues they may have. The successful candidate will have the ability to communicate with both technical and non-technical users and be able to interpret their needs effectively.

    This is a customer-facing role, so candidates will have experience of dealing with people on a daily basis and be looking to continuously improve the facilities available to the employees of the organisation.
    Education to a degree in IT or equivalent is desirable and previous experience of user training would be preferred. Most importantly, the successful candidate will have a flexible approach to working and must have a positive ‘can-do’ approach in order to be a key part of this small team.

    For an application form and role profile for this exciting new post, please visit our website British Athletics Welcome under the ‘About Us’ section. Send completed application forms to recruitment@uka.org.uk quoting ‘IT SUPPORT TECHNICIAN’ in the subject box.

    Closing date for applications is Midday Tuesday 30th April 2013. Interviews will be held from Wednesday 1st May onwards.

    UKA reserves the right to close the advert earlier than the published date so if you are interested in the role you are advised to apply early to avoid disappointment.
    Due to recent high volumes of applications we regret we will not be able to reply to each applicant individually. If you do not hear from us within two weeks’ of the closing date then your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion.

    UKA is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or belief.

    Right on my door step - thanks for sharing

    EDIT: has anybody else found where you apply? Can't see an "About Us" section per se, and the "About UKA" page makes no mention of vacancies...
