We are looking for a person to provide part-time support for all our IT systems and assist other staff with using technology.
Investigate and resolve issues with, and provide support for all our IT systems, desktop/laptops, mobile devices, printers, cabling, installation and maintenance of associated software including the website.
You should be enthusiastic and interested in technology, with a good knowledge of PCs and MS products at least, and able to use initiative to find solutions to problems as they arise. Experience of website design and SEO would be an advantage.
You should expect to spend at least 50% of your time on site (8am-4pm), but there is also the opportunity for home-based working.
A driving licence would be helpful, but not a barrier to employment if absent. We are in a rural location and it would be convenient to have and maintain a vehicle, or a decent bicycle.

We sow, plant, maintain, select for seed production veg, then we harvest, dry, thresh, clean and process seed for sale. Please see https://seedcooperative.org.uk for more information.
We welcome applications from people with difficulties and disabilities and are happy to make adjustments to suit your requirements.
