    I'm appalled by this thread, I hadn't realised schools paid so poorly for the people who keep the place running.

    I work in one of the Schools of a University. Much of the infrastrucure (network, domain etc) is handled centrally so we deal with supporting users in our area and providing specific bits of infrastructure that just our area need.

    The lowest paid member of our team in the School is on Grade 5 which is between 18-21k depending on how long you've been collecting annual increments. So I'm amazed at how little NMs with so much more responsibility are paid.

    Compare ths job spec (not from my institution) with that of an NM Newcastle University: AV/IT Technician

    I just don't know how schools can justify such poor pay.

    It is IT related.......
    I'm afraid I'm.........
    TEACHING
    ICT to kids in a private British school,
    so, I don't need to speak Spanish,
    The computers (OS, keyboard etc) are also in English!

    Hmm i'm a smidge jealous (well except for the teaching bit :-)) good luck mate. I'm learning Spanish at the moment and i have to say it's the most straight forward language i've tried so far so i think you should pick it up easily if you feel you want to give it a try.

    I feel I’ve hijacked the thread and not contributed sorry.

    Approx 25k, Derbyshire. 500 Stations, 50 laptops, 8 Servers, IP Camera network, video conference suite, 110 ish staff and 1400 students.

    The money isn't attractive so what else keeps a Network manager at a school?

    I doubt its the holidays I would expect this to be the best time for upgrades/maintenance.

    As backend software tends to be fairly cheap you can stay relatively upto date on the latest technology (which keeps it interesting) and you also get to decide what's happening and what direction you should take. You don't tend to get that level of freedom in most companies or a 6 week break to try your ideas :-)
    There’s also the feeling that if you do your job well then you are helping make a difference, every penny saved can go on the students education rather than a companies books.

    Wow, the school really should be paying you more if they expect you to teach.

    Partly the holidays - I'm term time only +2. The variety of things I get to play with, the non IT things I get to do, the kids, good friends etc.
