Technical Opportunities Registration of Interest
Do you have a curiosity for new technology and new ways of solving problems?  Do you thrive working in diverse teams with other highly capable technical people? Are you keen to learn and keep your knowledge up to date? We’ll support you with access to comprehensive training, including the opportunity to gain formal qualifications (dependent on the role) - it doesn’t matter where you are in your career, as long as you’re interested in learning or have experience of working in a more technical role.  
We’ll be recruiting for a variety of roles over the coming months including:

You’ll design, implement, support and maintain a complex and technologically advanced IT infrastructure.

In the meantime, we encourage male and female individuals from an ethnic minority background and females from any ethnic background, to register their interest in this forthcoming opportunity*.
