IT Systems Engineer - Band 5
Here at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust our non-clinical and clinical teams work hand-in-hand to ensure the best care for the people of Bolton. This includes our dedicated in-house IT team, and we have an opportunity for someone, with the right technical skills, and a real passion for innovation and brilliant customer service, to join that team as IT Systems Engineer.
In this role you will have the opportunity to be at the forefront of IT innovation within the NHS. You will be joining a well-established team delivering 2ndLine support and technical advancement to clinicians, directly impacting patient care. A good example of innovation already delivered by the team would be the ‘follow me’ desktops that allow clinicians to tap and move their desktops between home and wards and this will be improved and built upon with exciting future projects.
Based at the Royal Bolton Hospital site, you will help provide technical support services to 7,500 users over 25 sites, ensuring that those services are efficient and responsive to the needs of the Trust. This is a busy service giving you exposure to a wide range of technical infrastructure and advanced technologies; building on that exposure we will ensure that the role provides you with a comprehensive and structured career path and development plan.
The technical requirements for the role are outlined in the attached Job Description and Person Specification and we would ask you to consider these before applying for the role. As importantly you will be a great communicator and team player; and someone who fits in really well with our established team who are seen as subject experts providing a helpful and friendly service.
The Trust is a great place to work, evidenced by the most recently NHS Staff Survey results where our staff ranked us as the best NHS place to work in Greater Manchester. We are really proud of this and ensure that everyone in the Trust is both seen and heard. It has been a challenging time for the NHS with the national pandemic response at the forefront of our minds and activities, but we are coming out of pandemic pressures with renewed energy, and it is a truly exciting time for the Trust with investment and development of the IT Infrastructure of which this role will be a key part.
So, we hope the above has encouraged you to join a high-performing IT team in an equally high-performing Trust! We look forward to hearing from you.
