Redstone bid for IT Managed Services in Birmingham schools
New to the forum here.
Some background on myself. I am an ICT Technician in a school in birmingham. It is my first job in IT and have been lurking around on the forums for a while after a recommendation from another forum.
I have found that my school has taken on BSF and that Redstone have won the bid for the IT managed services. I dont know where I stand now! The building work needs to be completed before obviously redstone come in and these will take approx 2 - 2.5 years to complete. So I know I have atleast that long to find another job. Is it likely that Redstone will take us on or use their own people?My team consists so far of a network administrator and two technicians. With the servers going to the new data centre / farm I know there wont be any need for any 3rd line support. But what about the day to day desktop support?
Are all the ICT techs going be out of a job?
Does anyone have additional information on this matter?
