I am the Service Delivery Manager for Oasis Community Learning's Birmingham Academies and will be the person the successful applicant will report to.
Oasis are a fantastic organisation to work for and we have a fantastic team of IT Professionals across the UK and a local team of 2 Technicians currently working across several Primary Academies in the area. The successful applicant will join this team and provide support for 2 - 3 Primary Academies acting as first line support but regularly getting involved in your typical second line duties.
If anybody has any questions in terms of the job role and duties or working for Oasis please do let me know by either replying here or sending me a PM.
Please do bear in mind that the Interview date has had to be moved to the afternoon of 4 December 2013 due to other obligations and I do apologise for any inconvenience that may cause.
Oasis Community Learning supports a variety of schools all across England though those we support in the Birmingham/Midlands region currently consist of Primary Schools only. There are no immediate plans for a Secondary School to come on board in the area though that could change in the future.
The team the successful applicant will be a part of currently support 8 Academies; 7 of which are located in Birmingham and the other in Worcester. All mileage between said sites is covered under our Expenses Policy depending on the size of your car's engine.
I hope that answers your query but if not please feel free to post back or PM me.
