What is ICT support?

ICT support technicians provide technical support and assistance for users of computer infrastructure and web technologies. They also undertake diagnosis and resolution of technical problems.

Why is ICT support so important (benefits)?

ICT support technicians work mostly in offices or call centre environments. A large portion of their time is spent on the phone whilst working at computer terminals. Due to the nature of their work, they may be required to work late nights or weekends and shift work is not uncommon. Continuous training is often required to keep up-to-date with the latest changes and developments. ICT support technicians may be required to work independently or with others to rectify common problems.
