    Subbed, I'm dying to start my IT career path.

    All the jobs I've had are all agency work, and only three of the many jobs I've had were IT based, which unfortunately were only 3 months work for each, except for my current admin post.

    All three were based around schools ICT support, two of the jobs I was based in a school and being their tech, installing new equipment, supporting staff and pupils, the usual.

    And one I was within Cardiff Council Schools ICT team supporting the whole of Cardiff's schools, there I learnt how to use Windows Servers, setting up PCs onto the network and allocating it to the correct location within active directory.

    All three I've enjoyed, Something I really want to do, even if its just a simple case of plugging in a new machine and setting it up, that's something I enjoy.

    Right now I'm stuck in an admin role nothing to do with IT which I've been with now for 4 years through agency, and its only now they've decided to give me a permanent job.

    Look in newspapers for school jobs buddy, it's where I got my last one. That was in a secondary/grammar school so you youwld be first point of contact, installing PCs, or using AD, server work and others tasks etc etc.

    Keep and eye out :)

    Would never imagine looking in a Newspaper, I usually looked at the usual, council sites, job search and eTeach.

    What lets me down is my qualifications I think, which is only a level 3 BTEC National diploma for IT Practitioners and also experience in an IT based role, which is just about 1 year worth once you've added the few months I've had in each job.

    Experience let me down before for a Comprehensive school last year, The job was basically assisting the "Network Manager" at the school, they said It came down to two people, me or the person with more work experience, so obviously he won otherwise I'd be happy as Larry right now.

    Tbh experience will help you more unless they are exceptionally picky. Unless it's a tech orientated school you aren't going to need all the qualifications under the sun

    Just a heads up to anyone hoping to work for Haribo:


    Seasonal Brand Manager

    Technical Service Manager (Not IT related)

    And soon, there'll be my previous job on offer. Development Technologist / Development Manager.

    Working for Haribo is amazing, big brand company working much like a small-medium business with heavy on networking. Both technical role can be a job for life if you fit in the environment.

    Good luck.

    Company has had 2500% growth since it started.
    Target is £25 mil a year (to start)
    Perks for good sellers (they've just taken a group to Spain on a short holiday)
    Training given. They will take on anyone of any age but would like a few older people due to the products they are selling.

    Legal company selling Wills, Trusts, LPAs etc. You don't actually sell, you're just cold calling and booking appointments for consultants.

    They are also always looking for consultants but this is a commission only role but don't let that put you off, you can earn 6 figures a year. I think there is an initial outlay of £500 for training and materials but there are a good bunch some 250 strong.
