If this is ticking your boxes, see if you tick ours. We’re looking for someone with a recent background in device diagnosis and repair in a mobile phone/computer repair shop or technology-led pawnbrokers. Though you won’t have to deal face to face with the customers in this job, we still need you to be a nice person with a positive outlook.
