About ITC Service

We are a fantastic team! Ok, we are biased, but really – there’s a fantastic vibe at ITC Service. Our main HQ at Monkton is a great place to work; with funky artwork, lots of space and easily accessible from around the North East.

The company began with two founding directors and now is 30 staff strong. We have an exceptionally high staff retention rate and we are very selective in our recruitment process. We don’t want our clients dealing with a new engineer each time they call; long-term relationships and partnership is key to how we operate.

The team is a mix of administrative staff, 1st, 2nd and 3rd line IT engineers, account managers and not forgetting our fantastic apprentices. Our engineers have their own specialist areas and there is no IT issue that can defeat the team!

We are a sociable team, we get on, we work exceptionally hard and we have fun. We consume a lot of coffee and cake doesn’t last very long at our HQ!

Due to our ongoing growth we occasionally have employment opportunities which are found below.

Our recruitment process involves an initial written application, a first round of interviews with our Service Desk Manager and a Team Leader and a final interview and technical written task with our Directors.

We recognise that career development is important to our staff, we offer staff ongoing training and opportunities for skill development; this is monitored and coordinated through 6 monthly staff appraisals. There is also scope for career progression within the team.

We are extremely proud of our apprenticeship programme. Offering local young people a fantastic kick-start to their career. We have apprenticeship opportunities in IT, marketing and business administration. All of our apprentices have secured full-time employment with us on completion of their training.
