Tell us about an "average" day, or if every day is different tell us about a recent dayI would describe myself as hands on and involved in all aspects of IT plus some not exactly IT related. We are a small IT team so we wear many different hats. Typical day may be fixing software issues with third party suppliers, researching new or upgraded software, attending meetings and supporting our users.
