ICT Technician

Grade 5 - £19,698 - £20,903 per annum (dependent on years service), 37 hours per week, Monday to Friday, Whole Year, Permanent

We have an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and proficient ICT Technician to work with the Academy Network Manager across our newly formed MAT.

You will be based at Erasmus Darwin Academy, which is a highly successful and heavily over-subscribed school, one of the highest performing 11-18 school in Staffordshire and in the top 8% of schools nationally for progress.  We gained ‘Good’ in our 2018 Ofsted inspection and as part of the Local Authority’s quality assurance strategy, we have gained Category 1 status, the highest category of school performance, for four years running.

The role will be varied, involving assistance and development of the Academy network, troubleshooting ICT problems for students and staff, support and development of the Academy Virtual Learning Environment, classroom assistance, and monitoring of ICT security and safeguarding systems.  Knowledge of Apple OS would be an advantage but not essential.

You should be ideally educated to degree level or have equivalent experience. You will have a customer service focus and will be a team player with the ability to also work effectively on your own, often under pressure. Excellent organisation and prioritisation skills are essential as you will be working within a fast paced and demanding environment.

In return, we offer an incredibly positive working environment, passionately believing that our human resources are our most important and valuable resources. Therefore, our staff wellbeing strategy is at the heart of our ongoing improvement work, meaning that middle and senior leaders are committed to ensuring that all staff are happy, cared for, listened to and professionally equipped to fulfil their role to the highest possible standard. Furthermore, opportunities for career progression regularly arise, with the Academy having an excellent record of training and developing our own teachers and leaders from within.

To apply for the post, please complete the application form and return to the Principal’s PA, Mrs Debbie Westwood, either by post or email d.westwood@eda.staffs.sch.uk

CLOSING DATE: 9.00 am, Monday 9th August 2021

This Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
