    leaving local council for a local college tech job, may be a helpdesk role still but I feel that based on that when I got my job at the council the interview was mostly talking customer service, and the college interview was asking me how to build an image etc and then included a technical test which i found easy but of course some may find tricky.

    they had 2 jobs available, one was a fixed term 12 month contract and the other was a permanent job, they offered me the 12 month contract which was disappointing as i wanted the permanent but i have taken the job in the hope it will become permanent... not much around these days.

    I'm sure you'll like it, I'm working for LA at the moment. Used to work in a secondary school, and there was loads more stuff I could get my teeth into, network setup, servers etc. Education sector pays less for software so whatever MS produced we could download and have a play, used Office 2010 back in 2010 whereas here we are still on 2003. It all depends on the workplace and colleagues of course

    As long as it's a good working environment, which I am sure it will be then there cannot be any problems... but we shall see :)

    Most teachers know nothing, about anything, other than their chosen field of learning. Common sense doesn't exist for them. There are exceptions to the rule of course.

    "You take the pay, we'll take the blame" is a common phrase. Without a Technician on hand, they would struggle.

    You are never thanked for doing something right, but always moaned at when something doesn't work.

    It's not all bad though, there are perks; half-terms and summer holidays, etcetera :D

    I will be working for the support service, so the half-terms I will still be in work supporting the office workers, but I won't mind that too much.
