The governors wish to appoint a skilled and knowledgeable IT technician whose principal role will be to maintain the existing and effective information technology infrastructure at our school. Working alongside a one day a week IT Systems Manager the appointee will deal with day-to-day maintenance issues relating to touchscreen whiteboards; laptops; ipads; educational software programs; visualisers; printers and e-mail accounts. There will also be opportunities to work alongside the Systems Manager to evaluate the effectiveness of existing systems, such as the school’s computer network; back-up systems; the way in which our two IT suites function and other aspects of the key technology we use to deliver high quality education.
Hours of work will ideally be 8.00 am to 3.00 pm, 4 days a week. We would also consider someone wishing to work three, rather than four, days a week. Some flexibility with regard to working hours could also be negotiated. This position is ideal for a young, talented IT operator at an early career stage, who would like to further develop their existing skills. It would also be suitable for someone at the opposite end of their career journey who is looking for a job that is manageable, not overly stressful and perhaps close to home. Finally it might suit a parent who wishes to finish work relatively early so that some time can be spent with a young family.
We are a highly successful, forward looking community school situated one mile from Richmond Park in south west London. Our school is really thriving and extremely popular.
