Ribble Valley Mayor Richard Sherras officially opened Ribble Valley’s newest business, Oliver Alcock Computer Services.
Computer whiz kid Oliver Alcock, 22, has left his job as an IT officer in local government to set up in business as a mobile computer repair specialist, operating from premises in the Fern Court Business Centre off Moor Lane, Clitheroe.
The former Bowland High School pupil will be offering computer and laptop repairs and upgrades, website design services, broadband and WIFI installation and repair and network management and maintenance at competitive rates.
Oliver is a fully qualified computer engineer and also a member of the Safe Trader Scheme. He is a graduate of the Cisco Networking Academy, has a City and Guilds NVQ Level 3 in computing and information technology and NVQ Level 3 in customer service.
He said: “Since leaving school, I have worked in the IT teams of a number of schools and at Ribble Valley Borough Council, but the time has come to bite the bullet and set up my own business.
“I am looking forward to establishing great relationships with my new customers and offering a computer repair service at competitive rates.”
Oliver’s service prices start at just £15 and quotes can often be provided over the phone. New customers during October will also receive a 10% discount on services and products.
