    Really good job Leicestershire

    http://www.rawlinscollege.org.uk/ind...d=76&Itemid=41

    Would go for it myself if was grade higher and fulltime

    Grade 7: Actual salary £15,089 per annum.

    37 hours per week/41 weeks per year (term time + 3 weeks) with scope for additional hours.

    Following a significant promotion of the current post holder we are looking for an enthusiastic person to help us continue discovering innovative ways of using our VLE and other emerging technologies to enhance teaching and learning, to enhance the vibrancy of our public website, and to support staff and students at all levels in e-learning. We are looking for an individual with imagination, people skills and technical competence to help these exciting projects continue.
    You get paid to play with lots of new technology...

    The Director of eLearning there is a top bloke, they have just picked up the ICT Mark and they are serious about the use of ICT.

    Definitely one for Moodlers

    Well ... it is Pro Rata of around £19k if you did it full time ... and that is not a bad wage.

    For someone to come in and start on £19k it is not peanuts. As the previous employee could attest (and I'll see if they will comment) it is a very nice job, working for a very positive Line Manager who seriously has some clue.

    Not *every* job can start at £25k and not every job deserves it. And not everything is about money, some of it is about the quality of life you have.

    Some people prefer to earn a bit less and have more holiday (term time only contracts), some people prefer to have less stress (no direct tech support).

    Sometimes I do think we can all get *too* cynical about what a job entails. Not everyone is out to screw us.

    Wage seems more than fair for what it is, plus it looks like a lovely job. Think how many fingers we have to have in different pies, never really being able to do what we'd like in any one facet because of time commitments - this is a perfect opportunity to take on one project, and put your all into it.

    I think the thing is that althought the pay is scaled at 19k, you are only getting 15k. OK, fine this may be scaled right, but unless you have partner to make up your wages, you cant really do a lot with the holidays as you wont be earning enough.

    Still job sounds fairly interesting and I know of people who are earning this much but working full time in schools.

    its not a bad pay scale, for a uni leaver or similar it'd be good way to get your foot in the door.

    plus, if you work well, make yourself popular you'll soon find the hours will go up, etc, i'm sure
