    Education ICT Consultancy

    I'm currently looking for anyone who would be interested in working odd days as an ICT consultant for an education company based in Birmingham.

    It would involve travelling to schools nationwide (expenses covered) and consulting on their ICT needs and selling in further services, such as bespoke software and web development we can offer.

    Please let me know (PM preferably) if you'd be interested and talk about rates etc.

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    It'd be sort of as and when rather than set days, this isn't a position in the company rather to represent us. We'd expect you to be self-employed but all expenses would be covered.

    Again, totally dependant on what the school wants. Generally a school day etc.

    We generally don't bother with half days alone, but sometimes could be 1 and a half days or 2 and a half days etc.

    A number of members are unlikely to be able to take time out of work to have a second job such as this consultancy work. However, some may be released by the school to do the consultancy if you pay the school for their time rather than pay them directly.

    This is how it worked with me and the Council for the last 12 months ... and now I am on a full-time release / secondment for the next twelve months (so could be released again to do this sort of work!)
