Ian is a veritable computing 'All Rounder' with strong desktop support skills, a background in programming in 'C', PHP and various other computer languages. Alex (Ian's girlfriend) is a local authority planner.
The new job will start on 5th November 2007.
Prior to the Spartan Press job, Ian was a technical programmer for Fife Council, maintaining and repairing hardware and software for council employees up-to the rank of Councillor!Meanwhile, Markku Niskanen will continue to work for Highland Host (the internet side of Spartan) 'remotely' from Finland.
