An exciting opportunity to further your knowledge of hospital IT systems has arisen at Fairfield independent Hospital in St Helens Merseyside.

We are located a mile off the East Lancashire Road near St Helens Merseyside.
Set in 7.5 acres of beautiful woodland with free car parking and subsidised meals, this hospital offers employees wonderful surroundings for a lunchtime stroll.


The IT Engineer role will be part of a team of two engineers and two IT data processing colleagues, a dedicated SQL programmer, an apprentice and a Director of IT.  With standalone computer systems with onsite and Cloud back up plus a virtual environment of 32 servers the engineer will find working on multiple projects across various departments stimulating and rewarding.  The hospital computer service is a Windows environment and uses VMWare hypervisors.  There are circa 200 users and 90 telephones.


This is an ideal opportunity for a graduate or time served engineer seeking a change but applications are welcome from applicants with I.T. NVQ Level 3 or an equivalent qualification. At least 2 years’ experience in a similar role is essential.


After the first 20 applications that meet the job person specification the review of the application will stop in order to minimise the administration burden.
