    Thumbs up

    Good Luck. I've also got over 10 years experience and I have been unemployed for 18 months now. I have been actively applying for jobs across the UK at every level and so far… nothing.

    Never give up!

    Blimey, thats not good.

    The job i have is fairly secure at the moment so maybe its not the time to start looking about.

    I was interviewing here a few weeks ago and nearly every candidate had been made redundant.

    Have you mainly been applying for positions in schools or positions in general?

    Best of luck with the search

    Thanks, I was made redundant (in retalliation for providing evidence during a criminal investigation) and in these difficult times I would strongly recommend staying put if your job is secure. It's a battlefield out there at the moment.

    My last job was as an IT Manager in a school, and I do get more interviews from schools than other sectors. I can't limit myself only to schools when applying for jobs, with competition for jobs as fierce as it is today.
    I do a few hours a week for a local PC repair company, but it's not the same... Just fixing PCs when I'm capable of so much more. I used to design and install multi-site networks, cleave and polish fibre-optic cables, build servers with RAID 10 and what I don't know about Active Directory, Exchange and SQL Server isn't worth knowing. Phone systems, CCTV, Entry control systems, the list goes on... and I wrote an Information Management System that puts SIMS to shame.

    Stay positive.

    It was evolving from a precompiled application as modules were created or refined. It automatically deployed and updated itself over a network.
    It did all the usual things you'd expect,
    Contact management, Staff and Pupil records. Including all the HR related tasks.
    Timetables, attendance. Curriculum planning and assessment.
    Inventory, stock control, budgets. Workflow and project management.
    Health and Safety risk assessments, child protection policies and procedures.
    At the press of a button, you could fax off a completed AbsCare form.

    I really loved my job, Things will never be the same again.

    Last I heard Huxlow School didn't have an IT Manager, not sure if that's still the case though (it is going back a couple of months, however I haven't seen an advert since then).

    Yep, there was a bit of a move around during the summer in Northants but I think most things are covered atm. If I do hear of anything I'll post it on the jobs forum though.

    Stumbled across this by accident but if you're still looking give .ICT a bell in Northampton - I don't know if they're actively hiring but if you'd do on site support / PPT technical stuff then I do know they're short handed. You might want something a bit better but if you're really stuck it might be a lifeline, especially with things the way they are currently :/
