Setting up and supporting AV equipment for meetings and conferences and carrying out routine checks on the AV equipment and computer rooms will be an important part of the role.

The working hours are part time (to either follow a morning/afternoon pattern; 8.30am to 12.30pm or 2.30pm - 6.30 pm) and will require a degree of flexible working to cover occasional evening and weekend events.
