I Need to set up a shared IT Calendar for 10+ people to see scheduled IT work but I'm not sure of the best way to do this in Exchange 2007

If anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be great, thanks

How about a Public Folder containing appointments?  You can create it in Outlook, and then set the appropriate permissions.

Can you see the Public Folders tree in Outlook, at the bottom of your folder list?

All you need do is decide where you want it in the heirarchy, right-click, and create the folder.  For a calendar, the item type is Appointment.

Also, remember to set the permissions (again in Outlook) so that your users can post items to it.  If that's what you require.
