  • The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust has launched 18 new ICT jobs across its operations. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 22nd October.

    You might not think of the healthcare sector when looking for careers in tech and IT, but it’s undergone digital transformation just as any other industry. The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust is currently recruiting for a range of ICT roles in areas from networks and telecommunications to systems management and business intelligence.

    The ICT department at the Trust not only provides support for the organisation and the devices used by staff but also manages a data centre for backup and virtualisation and the organisation’s full cyber-security infrastructure. The Trust has listed 18 new roles in its ICT department, with a closing date for applications of Tuesday 22nd October 2019 at 5:00 PM.
