IT Support Apprentice
Wolverhampton - GBP117-GBP200 per week

Do you love tinkering about with computers?

Do you like the challenge of seeing if you can find where the IT problem is and figuring out how to solve it?

Do your friends and family often ask for your advice on how to sort out their IT issues? Or are you the first port of call to set-up someone's new computer, laptop or smart phone?

Do you enjoy the sound of the "penny dropping" when you've been able to explain how to do something to somebody who was struggling with IT systems and programmes?
