Our technicians are the main point of contact between Dial A Geek and our clients, so it is essential they are effective and confident communicators and enjoy working with people as much (or almost as much) as they enjoy working with computers.

  • You have a knack for technical problem solving and thinking on your feet.
  • You have been complimented on your patience when dealing with non-technical folk.
  • You have experience solving issues on multiple platforms; Apple Mac, PC, Microsoft server platforms, etc.
  • You have an understanding of Servers, NAS drives, Wired/Wireless networks, Printers etc.
  • You have experience troubleshooting and installing wireless/wired networks and broadband connections.
  • You are knowledgeable and confident in your ability to give advice on what is best for a client’s individual needs.
  • You can adapt instructions to different levels of understanding to ensure any client is comfortable with new equipment, software or work undertaken.
  • You have a confident phone manner.
  • You can explain technical issues in an accessible way.
  • You have at least 2 years of experience providing 1st or 2nd Line IT support for business.
  • You have a full driving licence with own reliable clean transport (mileage expenses paid).[Plus]

And if you can provide examples from your work or home life that demonstrate the following skills, we definitely want to hear from you:

  • Self-motivated
  • Technical problem solver
  • Highly-organised
  • Excellent time-management skills
  • Detail orientated
  • Confident communicator
  • Able to multitask
