About the employer

Believe it or not the provenance of CIS Tech (formerly County Infrastructure Services Ltd) can be traced back almost 30 years ago to a primary school in Severn Stoke, Worcestershire. It’s role then was the repair and maintenance of printers and OHPs. As the years rolled by, CIS extended its services to schools and local government to include audio visual and data network services. Although successful, WCC decided to divest its interest in CIS and sold it to Netbuilder Ltd in 2013 and CIS Ltd was formed. With a new owner, CIS could now expand its services to include on-site and remote IT server and desktop support to schools and businesses.
