We are looking for an outstanding Network Manager to manage and maintain the ICT systems across the school, and to lead future developments. We are looking for an individual, who not only has the knowledge and skills to undertake this role, but someone who truly embodies the school's vision and core values.

The successful candidate will play a key role in shaping the school's ICT strategy. They will provide essential operational support to ensure that IT hardware is well maintained across the school, and is used to its full potential to support the delivery of outstanding teaching and learning to our students and for our administration infrastructure.

This is an exciting period of investment in ICT across a large and thriving secondary school, working with a forward-thinking Trust. The school and Trust are investing heavily in ICT, building on our recent "Good" Ofsted rating, as we look to provide a truly quality education for all.

The successful candidate will need to be able to work on their own initiative, and have the ability to work well to deadlines during busy and pressured times.

Experience of working in a school would be desirable, but is not essential.
