We are pleased to announce that Link ICT has further expanded our IT support technical team following the appointment of Adam Walsh and Andy Barton.

The appointments follow a number of new client wins to provide outsourced IT services to four more local Derbyshire schools and project work won as part of the Government ‘Connect the Classroom’ initiative which is providing funding for schools to upgrade IT networks to improve IT performance.

Adam, who lives in Chellaston, holds several BTEC qualifications related to information systems and creative technology. He joins Link ICT as an IT support apprentice and will be mentored to provide customers with first-line IT support.

Commenting he said, “I am very interested in IT and believe this apprenticeship role will enable me to build on the knowledge I have gained at college with practical ‘hands-on’ experience working at Link ICT.”

Also joining the team is Andrew Barton who is an experienced IT technician who holds various hardware manufacturers accreditations, Comptia Server, AEB Exams and numerous software skills.

Also from Derby, Andrew previously worked for Specialist Computer Centre as a senior network and hardware engineer and team leader.

In his new role, Andrew will be broadening his software skills and utilising his vast knowledge and customer experience. Commenting he said, “Working at Link ICT has a real family feel with a great team spirit. I like the fact everyone gets involved and there is a sense of real team effort.”

Link ICT was founded in 2004 and specialises in the provision of on-site IT support as an outsourced solution. The company has a particular specialism working within school and educational organisations where being on-site helps to ensure users understand IT and the cost and efficiency benefits of using IT are fully realised.
