About us

Unity MAT is an exciting, ambitious Multi Academy Trust currently made up of 3 special schools in the Warwickshire area. We are committed to providing high quality support services to our schools and beyond.

We are looking for an experienced ICT Manager to manage and develop a first-class IT capability supporting our staff and students in locations across the Trust.

We have approximately 1000 users, both staff and students who use the ICT service – both for delivering education in classroom, administration of the academies that make up the Trust as well as executive end user computing for the Trust central team.

This is an opportunity to work with a broad range of education specialists and staff and shape the direction of IT change within the Trust. With a remit covering managing internal ICT systems and user support, managing relationship between the Trust and its key ICT services suppliers, contract renewals, ICT compliance & GDPR, support with staff training in the use of technology along with pursuing further economies of scale for the Trust.

The ICT Manager will be key to developing the ICT service and defining the direction and roadmap for the future of the service for the Trust, ensuring that the most cost effective, fit for purpose services are used within the Trust for the delivery of first-class education in classrooms and supporting users in achieving this.

We would look for the ideal ICT Manager to have worked in a similar role previously and experience in the education sector would be beneficial but not essential.

Job Summary:

Support the Trust and Executive Leadership Team by:

  • managing the provision of high quality, effective ICT support services across the Trust and its academies, leading the development and implementation of the Trust’s ICT strategy in conjunction with Executive Leaders, managing the data network, ICT infrastructure and telecommunications systems, GDPR and cyber security requirements, ensuring the best use of resources and value for money in respect of ICT equipment and service contracts.

  • Flexible working
  • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Training and development opportunities
  • RISE Employee Assistance Programme (including GP Helpline, Financial & Legal Advice line and Carer Support for employee and household members)
