IT Operations Assistant

Lancaster University, Lancaster, UKApr 2022 - Jun 2022

This role is important and plays a large part in the smooth and effective running of IT services at the University.

Teaching Space Checks: I examine and test IT equipment in lecture theatres and other teaching spaces to look for issues that could impact teaching or other uses of the space. If issues are found I troubleshoot and report these issues to IT staff so they can be rectified as soon as possible.

Workshop: In this part of the role I mainly restocked equipment in different spaces around campus. I also updated software and firmware on devices. Another thing I did in this role is research software products and services that the University are looking for and find options that give optimum results.
