So why students?

Our support team is fully staffed by IT students from your local area. They’re ideally suited to help you sort out your IT problems because they work with computers every day and they know all about the latest IT developments. Every one of our students:

  • Undergoes a 5 hour induction
  • Provides at least 2 references
  • Undergoes a CRB check
  • Provides a passport, utility bill and letter from their university as proof of identity
  • Is fully insured
