    Just filling out an application form and part of the essential criteria is:

    "Specialism in Technical Services (ISM L4); ability to perform role without unnecessary support"

    Googled it with no result - can anyone shed any light??

    Basically it means you are a specialist in radio, that covers the ISM bands which includes things like cordless phones, bluetooth , wifi, RFID and many other things including non communications such as microwave ovens.

    Hey mate,

    I'm not sure if that's what they mean in this instance.

    ISM also stands for: Industry Structure Model. ISM allows comparison of jobs across the industry in a consistent manner.

    Level 1: Standard Entry
    Level 2: Initially Trained Practitioner
    Level 3: Trained Practitioner
    Level 4: Fully Skilled Practitioner
    Level 5: Experienced Practitioner / Supervisor
    Level 6: Specialist Practitioner / Manager (Limited Scope)
    Level 7: Senior Specialist / Manager (Extended Scope)

    Recently ISM was aligned with SFIA to produce SFIAPlus - so if they are still using the term ISM, they are a bit behind with their terminology :lol:

    For references, see here, here (there's a chart) & here.

    Hope this helps :)

    Nor do i.... perhaps the job description may be useful.

    I have applied for several jobs in IT networking that also require level 4 ISM radio engineering.

    I hate it when things have multiple meanings that can still refer to the same industry.

    As some of us do on this forum - keep our employer/prospective employer unknown - all I can say is the reason why I thought Andi was right on his first post was the clients use radio and wireless quite a bit.

    Thanks for the links Ken - it could quite honestly mean that, which would make sense given its IT we're in!
