    No chance. Across the way here in Bucks, you rarely get techies for that salary bracket these days.
    Anything that has "assistant" and "manager" in it immediately propels it into the bracket above 'technician', thus commanding at least £18k (probably more) in the South (outside of London).

    I agree with the above I'm employed here as an IT Technician on 19K+. I'm currently doing a foundation degree hopeing that this will improve my earning potential, this post for an Asst Net Man would be a promotion for me but would I apply, there taking the p*ss.

    Re: Assistant Network Manager

    That is pathetic money. That salary would be what my school would pay for a college leaver with some work experience and a couple of A levels for a Technicians role.

    Either the money should go up, or the job title changed to IT Technician.

    Re: Assistant Network Manager

    If you look at the very brief job spec then it does not look much like the duties of an assistant network manager but more like those of a technician....

    What do you guys think?

    Yes I have. It is mainly why I left my last job - they just would not pay a reasonable salary. I changed location to a local FE college and basically for the same kind of duties my wage jumped by nearly £4000 and on the scale it goes up to nearly £8000 more. I was at the top of the scale at my last job.

    Ok I now have a few years of relevant experience on top of a degree but there should not be that kind of disparity of wage.

    Re: Assistant Network Manager

    When the job is outsourced under BSF, the company should be under obligation to bring the wages in line with similar jobs within the company.- or sack them.

    For example if Sun/Dell/MS/whoever take over the school then the employee only needs to find one other employee (of opposite sex) who does a broadly similar job (assistant manager) in one of these large comapnies to claim sexual discrimination. I'm sure these mulitnationals pay well for their network managers

    Re: Assistant Network Manager

    Ok ... my turn to stick my oar in.

    The above job is for someone level B on Becta's technical competencies scale, working towards level C. It is an "experience building" post to work along an existing team. The title Assistant Network Manager is because we have had to already assign that title to one member of staff due to the difficulty in getting County to agree the pay scale.

    In some schools it would be regarded as "ICT Technician", in others the top end of the scale is the Network Manager. It varies from county to county. If I could pay more I would ... but I can't ...

    We have a good training budget and can train people up, but we do need someone with some experience or aptitude.

    In addition to the above there are 5 weeks holiday (up to 15 days in term time), a laptop and a share of whatever Chocolate Hob Nobs turn up.

    It is not a job for someone straight out of school, or someone with little experience ... neither is it a job for someone with 15 years of experience who just wants to clean mice ... it is a chance for someone to try new things out and ideas will mean a lot.

    If anyone is interested and wants more information please feel free to PM me.

    Hey Grumbledook,

    I just want to stress that my above comments were not meant to offend or attack you personally - in fact I did not realise that the job was at your institution. They are just my own personal view on the wage and duties.

    Re: Assistant Network Manager

    I would not worry about your comments Pete your right. They are asking for someone who has "HND, degree or professional qualification", this is not a very good move for someone with experience and these qualifications, not on that income anyway. I left a post paying more to move to my present post, a 3.5K pay increase and I would say that Northants is a damn site closer to the south of England than we are up here in the North West.
