Your new company
This growing multi-academy trust has a strong presence across the UK and has an excellent reputation in the North West for providing a high quality of education, but also for developing their team internally and providing career progression. I have personally recruited over 10 positions for this multi-academy trust, continuously receiving positive feedback from individuals regarding the development and progression available, as well as the excellent benefits package offered. Due to recent changes at one of their North Manchester schools, the IT Operations Manager has approached Hays seeking a Senior IT Technician to join the team on a permanent basis. Based in North Manchester and easily accessible via both public transport and main roads, the school has an excellent reputation with a very ambitious and forward-thinking Head Teacher who is passionate about utilising IT in the classroom to encourage effective teaching.
Your new role
Reporting to the Regional IT Manager, the successful IT Engineer will be responsible for delivering a high level of IT support working closely with the wider IT team in this North Manchester secondary school. On a daily basis, you will be working closely with end users, which will include staff and pupils to respond efficiently to IT requests, as well as working closely with IT leaders around the delivery of IT projects in the school and across the wider trust. Duties will include upgrading and installing software, installation and building of new hardware, managing an inventory for all IT equipment across the school and suggesting upgrades and solutions which may further improve the IT infrastructure. A large part of the role will be the involvement in IT projects which could be based around cloud environments, cyber security and other specialist areas of IT. Working as a team of 3 at the school, you will be well supported by IT colleagues who will support you in developing your knowledge of specific educational technologies and systems.
What you'll need to succeed
In order to be successful in securing this position, you must possess significant IT Engineer experience, ideally possessing experience specifically in the education sector. Experience working with specific educational technologies, or working in a school setting would also be beneficial. An individual who has a real passion for working not only in IT, but in the education sector is essential, as well as an individual who wants to further develop their skills.
What you'll get in return
In return, you will be paid a competitive salary of between £29,000 and £31,000, also receiving a retention bonus of £1500 after 2 years service. In addition, you will also receive 31 days holiday plus bank holidays, as well as benefits such as a local government pension scheme, cycle to work scheme, gym and retail discounts and become part of the training academy. This organisation is exceptional at developing and progressing careers for their IT team, therefore can offer career progression in addition to the above.
