    Unpaid but who cares, I'll get some experience under my belt.
    I'm volunteering at a city farm. It's fairly small scale (9 workstations and 3 servers) but it sounds like I'll get to do a bit of everything.

    Hey. Congratulations on your first IT position. I was volunteering for 8 months before I have managed to secure a full time position. You will definately learn a lot.

    Good luck

    Thanks folks.
    The enormity of the task is just starting to sink in. It might not sound much, only 3 servers (VoIP, Terminal and web) and <10 workstations, but we have to support it, improve it and train other volunteers, all within a £0 budget.
    :eek:
