IT Specialist

Renewable energy sites are high-tech places, requiring lots of computer equipment. I plan and optimise our computer needs to keep everyone and everything connected. From the office to the wind and solar farm, I’m configuring computers, fixing faults in our network, and managing our cyber security. I move bits and bytes so the team can move electrons!
