I'm looking to get out of Birmingham, but this role looks to be almost exactly the right stepping stone for me.

(also reminded me I need to alter my new CV to explicitly mention fulfilling IMACs, and also add in my symantec enterprise admin experience... dear god, it's growing MORE :P)

Please send me more details :)

This is an internal vacancy, but contacting recruitment@getronics.com and quoting reference number: 325416 will allow you to make an application.

And I'm sure we have a 'staff introduction scheme' so you may want to mention that pointed you this way :)

Brilliant, thank you :)
I presume that the application process is to send in a CV, or are there any forms?

And sadly I can't remember your surname, which might be an idea for me to include - could you PM that to me?
