The Howard Partnership Trust has an exciting and developing ICT strategy which gives a clear direction of travel for the next five years. To enable us to continue to deliver an ICT service to be proud of, we are looking for an ICT Senior Support Engineer to be based at Thomas Knyvett College.
Enterprise grade technology, practices and frameworks are being introduced as we change to a shared services model with a centralised Infrastructure Team and local support teams for our schools. Two datacentres are being created as we standardise our offering across our schools and embrace cloud technology, particularly Microsoft Office 365.
To be successful you will need to be enthusiastic and pro-active to help transform our service. Our Engineers act as both 1st and 2nd line contact for the ICT provision in schools. It is a highly varied role and ranges from ensuring all equipment is in good working order to maintaining asset registers and identifying health and safety issues. Good knowledge of end user devices and basic knowledge of networking would be beneficial. We are looking for people with potential who will quickly grow into the role.
Reporting to and working with the ICT Support Team Leader you will also work closely with other fellow Support Engineers and the Infrastructure team to centralise our ICT infrastructure, migrating schools into the new single Trust domain and implementing ICT in new school builds, including a new building for our lead school with approximately 2,000 student capacity.
This role will require the post holder to travel between the member organisations of The Howard Partnership Trust across Surrey if required (mileage allowance).
