    ICT Technician

    Large independent school in North London requires a technician to join their team supporting over 20 buildings, 500 machines, 2 networks and a host of desktop software including XP and CC3, AV kit, Dell machines, wireless laptops etc. You will ideally have a degree and practical schools based experience and be willing to learn and develop within a well supported team where training is regularly offered. Projects in the pipeline include implementing Sharepoint and a unified network.

    Not totally sure about that (this ad mentions CC3 - that one doesn't unless I missed it). Either way, don't mess with the sponsors!

    Re: ICT Technician

    I didn't acutally say it was a bad job, though I suppose I will be modded down if the post was in inappropriate.

    As noted in the other thread some schools could be shooting themselves in the foot with the degree requirement.

    I agree - a degree isn't necessary for a technician post, but then you need a degree for data entry nowadays! At least this job only has it as a desirable.

    Re: ICT Technician

    To be fair, I had lunch with Will from Special Agent last week and he told me that some companies put themselves out of the market for the staff they need because they want degree level candidate regardless of the fact that a degree is not always what they should be looking for. Its more of a stupid HR policy on the clients side rather than Special Agent.

    Re: ICT Technician

    Cheers Dos_box

    To be honest I think the school may be pursuaded should the right candidate come along with perhaps more vocational qualifications, having said that it is on the spec

    It does make it much more difficult for schools to find what they want when they specify a degree, often having the degree doesn't relate to the job or help them complete the tasks but does show an academic commitment to further ones career. Of course it isn't for everyone and there are some excellent engineers out there who dropped out of school early and some very poor graduates.

    Being a graduate when I first started looking for work was not an essential feature of job specs, certainly not in IT where experience was far more important, but as the number sitting degree's continues to rise (I'm not saying anything about the quality of these qualifications) employers are seeing more and more people with degree's, so you can see why they are specifying it more and more
