    Still worth a shot though - if you think you have got the background - tailor your CV to match the job desc (always use the same words they do in the ad), write a great covering letter and go for it!!
    Even just an interview would be good experience.
    The money isn't THAT great for living in London though

    £39K! That's AST/SMT money even in London. Certainly compares well with corporate salaries for IT professionals. No doubt you could find even higher amounts in the finance sector but they tend to pay at the top end for most jobs anyway.

    Hmmm, looks a good job from the info I downloaded, tempted to apply, and with that salary I could afford to relocate to London, would be good as I fancy the lights of a big city rather than the 0 lights of the middle of nowhere!

    I thought that by putting the advert here I had a better chance of reducing the numpty count.....

    If you think you qualify, and want the job, apply.....

    The fact that so many people are amazed by the salary offered for this job shows how p*ss-poor the pay is generally for school IT jobs, particularly out of London. We should all, as professionals (or at least highly-skilled workers), be able to command a far better salary than the paltry under-20k we see offered for network manager jobs by so many schools around the country. Makes my blood boil...

    Very interesting this. My job spec isn't entirely different to this and i've planned and executed the replacement of over 100 desktops and three servers in the past year, including all the infrastructure that goes along with it, as well as day-to-day support.

    What is interesting is the different values placed on the jobs - i'm on just over a third of the Barnet Academy salary and not in a much more economic place to live.

    It amazes me that state schools can have such massively differing values for what is in effect the same post, particularly after we've been through some "single status" rubbish that meant we were supposed to get fairer pay (the result of which was that i lost another £500 pa).

    You certainly will, by posting here, for which I think I speak on behalf of most members if not everyone, it shows that you realise that we exist and giving us a good chance to apply and for you to get a good member of staff if your chosen one is from us So I'm saying thanks for the post
