Hunting for IT staff? Lost your job during the pandemic? Sysadmin vacancies – and a free job ads offer – inside

Employers, would-be employees, we're here to help during these trying times

Job alert We've received a couple of solid responses to our offer last week, in which we invited organizations seeking tech staff to tackle the coronovirus pandemic to send in their recruitment ads and we would run them for free online. No catch, no snark, nor strings attached.

We're a bit worried we made that offer too specific, or perhaps just nobody's hiring right now?

Either way, this week we're broadening it out – anyone hiring IT staff and techies for any reason – should contact us with their job ads (sorry, but no agencies). Just include a few details, such as the role's title, its key responsibilities and requirements, and a link or contact details to find out more, and we'll share the info for free on The Register.

If you've got tech roles that need filling, we'll shout about them weekly, for free. Yes, free. These are difficult times for everyone, and we want to help get the tech community into work wherever they are.

Back to last week's job opportunities.

The first one is a stunner, from an organisation knee deep in the fight against this and many of the world's medical challenges.
